In addition, is a valuable experience, the life and the knowledge of indigenous peoples, for tourists to get to know. The South America travel portal offers more and more travel to South America and Central America, which allow to make acquaintance with the indigenous population.

Indigenous or even indigenous peoples are descendants of the first settlers of all regions of the world. They were displaced by conquests through a variety. This and the subsequent formation of the State had a decimation of their numbers and rights. Their social, economic and cultural traditions that define them as a people, are at risk to get lost. A responsible tourism must confirm the indigenous groups in their roots and their knowledge to give a value. This means Andrea Sauer, Director of the South America of travel portal: indigenous may not be demoted to folk performers. Rather the tourist to define his role as a guest and as a student, who lives in the municipality or takes part in the everyday life for a certain time. This new type of tourism is no longer as good as possible a meeting of rich and poor, but a meeting of cultures, trying to know and not only to scratch the surface, or even completely stuck in prejudice.” If these projects are carried out responsibly, then it can be described as ‘fair tourism’, because of the money that remains of the community. Solidarity, because it finances development projects; responsible, because as the local culture is respected; Green, because the environment is effectively protected, or sustainable, because have no exploitation or profiteering square. The South America of travel portal includes the under other travel, where Visit in a Kuna village in Panama in the program, the Mayan culture can be experienced, Mapuche settlements are visited, the Warao Indians in Venezuela tell of her life, visitors to cooking with indigenous families and more.
