The Experience

En nuestro centro ecológico contamos con bosques de pino. En la época seca corren peligro de quemarse si alguna persona que inició un fuego perdió el control de este. Ayúdanos con un simple manejo de prevención a evitar que los árboles se quemen. La tarea es simple aunque algo monótona, alejar las hojas de pino caídas del tronco de cada árbol. Al retirarlas en un radio de 1 metro el fuego no tendrá contacto directo con el tronco.

Bresly was an incredible host and we had such an amazing time at Immersion Travel Oxapampa.
She spent time with us teaching us Spanish, teaching us about the local birds, insects, nature, plants, culture, food.. she shared about her life growing up here and really helped us connect with nature and feel at home.
We always had plenty of food to eat and lots of time to explore and take photographs.
There was no pressure to “work” 4 hours each day but we would go for hikes and take photos as and when we wanted. It is super flexible and a good environment to be in.
Highly recommend!

What an amazing time I had 🤩 Bresly was an amazing host. She welcomed my wife and I in her house and I felt part of the family. Beforehand, communication was perfect. She came to get us at the bus station in Oxapampa and was always helpful to organize things for us (tour, taxis). I enjoyed the hours talking, learning about Peruvian culture, life, food, etc. Talking about food, it was amazing! Pachamanca 🤤 Bresly took us on many walks in the nature where I was able to take incredible photographs of birds, insects, etc. She also shared all her knowledge about sustainability 🍃 Unforgettable!

Maravillosa experiencia en la naturaleza de Oxapampa. Bresly una gran científica abocada a su profesión sostenible, ecológica de su entorno, con una gran vocación para enseñar y guiar. Exploramos en equipo la flora y fauna del lugar donde desarrollé mi labor como fotógrafa y diseñadora digital de contenidos visuales para Instagram Immersion Travel Oxapampa. Agradecida y feliz de la experiencia junto a Bresly y Felipe (voluntario).

Bresly es muy carismática ,hospitalaria y realmente me sentí como en casa.

Uma experiência incrível para quem procura contato com a natureza, fazer trilhas/caminhadas, praticar espanhol, conhecer uma nova cultura, aprender coisas novas, ver animais, plantas e principalmente frutas diferentes. A anfitriã Bresly foi muito gentil, me ajudou em tudo e me ensinou várias coisas, seus amigos e familiares muito legais e receptivos, um lugar muito acolhedor.
