As an important activity are the cargo and ride of passengers through the lagoon to the connection with the Ucayali River.

This populated center is the oldest and numerous of the native communities of the Shipibo - Conibo ethnic group in the area. Its inhabitants keep alive its culture through the crafts, language, rituals, traditions, the use of medicinal plants and the use of materials of the zone for the construction of their houses.

As part of experiential tourism, "shamanic nights" are organized, a set of magical - religious rituals of the locality.
