  • The famous tourist attraction. 20 sol entrance. Chains to, head decorations on, dance, buy dud, explain the Bora's and away again. A look at the real village did not apply.

  • As I read in a previous comment, it is a depressing experience. I felt shame itself and others by a kind of cultural prostitution in which I believe that we all lose. "The natives" danced in a way mechanical and boring and I dragged in their dances without any empathy, is me lacking respect for harassing me to get of my the most money possible, even come to fear that I stole. I suppose that there are tastes for everything, but I left "the village" with a sense of sadness and shame.

  • In a tour contracted with the company of Orlando´s Expedition, took us to visit the community of Boras, unfortunately, took us to the Longhouse 1st and we were harassed by vendors that they send you looks horrible when you reject any of their crafts. Dance them are not as nice as the community of the Kokáma (near the Pillpituwasi).
