Take the Manu Road!

Manu. It’s quite a sight. Among the world’s jungles, Manu stands out for its amazing diversity – a true showcase of Mother Nature’s wonders. Many visitors in Cusco take the well-known Manu Road, journeying from the towering Andes, through the enchanting cloudforest, and into the vibrant Amazon jungle.

With Impactful Travel, we bring you unique tours to this remarkable place, combining the natural beauty with an equally wonderful aspect of Manu: its indigenous people. While other tourists stay in lodges, you’ll have the chance to live in basic but comfortable accommodations run by local villagers. They’ll introduce you to their forest in a way you won’t forget. So, why wait? Rally your fellow students and plan a trip to Manu during one of your longer weekends or as a grand finale to your time at Mundo Antiguo Spanish School.

Want to join one of our Manu tours?

Booking is easy. Each tour page gives you all the important details about the experience, itinerary, what’s included (and what’s not), and how we aim to make a positive impact on local communities while reducing any negative effects. Some Manu tours are private, others are group tours.

Keep in mind, the prices shown are just a starting point. To get the exact cost for your group and travel date, just fill out the booking form on the tour page. The total will change based on your specific booking details. And don’t worry, all our Manu tours include transportation to and from Cusco.
