While Amazon tourism is still in its infancy, it has become an important economic alternative to logging for local communities that rely on a steady income. Industries like logging and petroleum drilling have for many years been the only revenue these isolated communities can get, but they are extremely destructive to the natural environment and many pristine forests are decimated by these activities, never to recover their original splendor. Tourism offers another source of income to replace these harmful practices.

In choosing an Amazon tour, it's important to be careful to consider that not all tours are on par with the Western standard, and finding a lodge that offers wildlife exploration, good guides, and comfort can be challenging. That's why it's important to book through trusted and experienced agencies.
