About Us

“to the inhabitants of the jungle had told them that according to the Bible, San Juan died for you cut off the head; this history is transformed and is represented in a typical dish the “juane”, which is composed of rice and chicken wrapped in leaves of “bijao” in round shape, resembling a head. This stew is prepared preferably on 24 June of each year to celebrate the day of San Juan Bautista, a feast which in the community The Prado (10 minutes from Puerto Maldonado) is held approximately from 1938. It should be noted that the Provincial Municipality of Tambopata institutionalized the feast of San Juan under Municipal Ordinance.”
