Tourists Banned from Amazon Village by Indigenous People

Tens of thousands of backpackers are drawn to the area around Nazareth every year, drawn by ecotourism and the chance to see the age-old traditions of native people.

But the 800 inhabitants of the village, close to the Amazon river and a 20-minute boatride from the nearest larger town, are fed up with the tourist influx.

  1. Yes, well, not only should they be fed up, they need to be worried about these people bringing all kinds of diseases, viruses etc that these indigenous people are not immune to.


Thanks for your comment it is much appreciated.
