Our day tour of the Amazon included a stop to see the Bora Indians. We didn't find it to be pushy like others said. We did purchase some bracelets for our daughters, and you could see tan lines from "western" clothing on some of the...More

Visiting the Bora is a decent stop-off when moving between the jungle and Iquitos. The traditional dances are fun to get involved in and the tribe are very welcoming. That said, prepare to be mobbed if you show any interest in their artisanal goods! You'll...More

The native Indian tribes fascinate me. The people are beautiful and they tell their story well and through dance. Expect to buy some of their goods for sale, but why wouldn't you want to support them? It was a really cool experience and I'm glad...More
