  • The cultural Center of the people of the Amazon is open to the public from Monday to Friday. Very interesting, it has many, many indigenous parts that depict how they live, feed, Hunt and fish. The customs of each ethnic group. As a young pass to do as an adult. He has to put his hand inside a glove full of dangerous ants bite super crazy. Medicinal remedies which they extract of the Woods, wood oils and much more interesting things to see.
