Whether you look for rich history, magic landscapes, beautiful jewelry, or local artwork, you came to the right place. Besides championing the PASPLE organisation, being a former mayor of the local town of Matapuqiuo, Ahuac, and a painter and weaver herself, Elizabeth is an expert guide and happy to be your personal guide for visits and tours in the area.
At an affordable fee we take volunteers on day trips and local excursions around the area.
Weaving is at the centre of Peruvian culture and has been a part of the PASPLE family for two generations. Elizabeth’s own father, Leoncio Tinoco Rodríguez, is a famous Master Weaver in Peru who has received multiple prices and awards for his work and contributions to weaving as an art. He has even been featured in multiple documentaries and expositions including one in in New York for National Geographic.
Eli herself weaves and paints as well as her mother Eva and is well connected with many fine, accomplished local craftsmen and women whose work is renowned in the region and throughout the whole world.
If you love to explore your creative side whilst absorbing the indigenous styles of Peru, we will be happy to oblige!
