With this ethnotourism module, Chaskiventura - Peru holidays will show you a community with thousand-year-old traditions ! Since immemorial times, the inhabitants of Sibayo have been harvesting seaweeds in Moquegua, crossing deserted plains and Arequipa's mountains in order to distribute them in the lowlands of the Colca valley.  They exchange their seaweeds for fruits, that they swap in the Andean highlands, for potatoes and dried meat among other products. They are the living witnesses of a thousand-year-old system of prodution and trade, based on ecological floors which are part of their cultural identity. During the Spanish colonization, Viceroy Toledo, facing the poverty of Sibayo's people, gave them a title deed to the lands situated on the coast so that the inhabitants could extract the seaweeds, exchange them and pay taxes to the Spanish Crown. Do not hesitate any longer !
