About San Nicolas

Rodríguez de Mendoza is a beautiful and distant province part of the Amazon region, with a long ethnic history. Studies of the area say that before the Spanish colonization, there were native groups including the Jeberos, Motilones and Chachapoya peoples, in addition to the Inca passage in the territory.

Getting to Rodriguez de Mendoza by road from Lima can take up to 2 days passing through the coast, mountains and jungle. A few years ago, the Chachapoyas airport was brought online, which greatly shortened the time. Now it’s only necessary to take a 1-hour flight to Chahapoyas and a 3-hour road trip to reach our destination.

Rodriguez de Mendozas capital is San Nicolas, an area is characterized by lush vegetation, high altitudes, and weather that is humid, foggy, and a little cold. The minimum altitude here is around 1,600 masl—the starting point to reach the various farms in the province, most 2 to 3 hours away on trail roads.

During farm visits we have a privileged view of the entire San Nicolas valley, of the Leiva River, the main river that crosses the valley, and of the diversity of ecological settings and climates that vary rapidly from one altitude to another.
