We are
Muyuna Foundation

and we empower communities in the Conservation Area Tamshiyacu-Tahuayo.


Co-create socio-ecologic resilience in Amazonian riverside communities utilizing regenerative land management practices and alternative education.


Amazonian riverine communities achieving territorial equilibrium as their ecological awareness transforms, proposing a dignified quality of life that encourages collaboration and commitment together.

What we believe in

The intention we put into our work.
  • Generate fair job opportunities for residents of nearby communities.
  • Establish sustainable projects for the benefit of the community.
  • Encourage environmental and social responsibility.
  • Promote a culture of respect for human rights and nature.
We are here NOT to save the communities in the Amazon Rainforest.
  • We believe that each community has the potential to improve its living conditions through the creation of strategic alliances, which allow them to develop sustainable projects that contribute to their well-being.
  • We are committed to being an active part of the community so that everyone has the opportunity to reach their greatest potential.
  • We seek to develop in the community critical, reflective and creative thinking skills, foster collaborative work, continuous improvement and above all an education for a sustainable future.
  • We are carrying out tourism, education and sustainability projects in the Tamshiyacu Tahuayo Regional Communal Conservation Area as an effort to implement a sustainable development model that takes into account the interests of the community and respect for the local culture

Muyuna Foundation is a community dedicated to doing.

The Communities We Empower

Many small people, who in many small places, do many small things, can change the face of the world.

San Juan De Yanayacu

Muyuna’s closest neighboring riverside community, San Juan de Yanayacu is 5 minutes in boat and home to 50 people who dedicate themselves to tourisim, fishing, and commerce.

Ayacucho Tipischa

Ayacucho is around 30 minutes in boat from Muyuna, yet we share many times together due to the local school, weekly soccer mathes, and forest management meetings.


14 empowered kids committed to regenerative learning and stewardship.

Nature is involved in every aspect of life in Amazon riverine communities. Join our environmental stewardship team and engage in community outreach efforts for and with a local group of young environmentalists “Regeneradores Yanayacu”.

We are and we do.

Traversing pristine Peruvian landscapes, meeting the generation of the future from all parts of the country, and noticing the variety of threats we as a nation face brought up the question: How can our Amazonian Ecolodge in the middle of the rainforest contribute?
