Tarma sits at over 3000 meters (10,000 feet) but is a stone's throw from the ceja de selva (high jungle), where many of Peru's citrus plantations lie. For around S/50 ($20), you can organize a day trip from Tarma to visit Chanchamayo's magnificent waterfalls, butterfly-filled forests, and local tribal groups. These tours take guests to the major waterfalls in the area, including a refreshing dip in the 30-meter Tirol Falls, a jungle lunch of cecina (cured pork) or doncella (river fish), a visit to the local Ashaninka tribe at Pampa Michi, and a tasting of local coffees and other artisanal products. For those who won't get to the Amazon during their time in Peru, this is an inexpensive way to experience the pleasures of jungle living. It is also a warm escape from the cool highland air. Peru Latino Tarma offers daily tours.
