It involves two case studies: Posada Amazonas, a Peruvian jungle lodge owned jointly by a Lima tour agency and the local community Infierno; and Chalalan Ecolodge, a Bolivian company started with the aid of Conservation International and now owned and operated by the community of San Jose de Uchupiamonas. In the film, members of each community that participated in a series of workshops called 'Trueque Amazonico' share their experiences and views in the area of community-based ecotourism. Issues involved include community development, conservation, and business management" -- from cover.
