Chazuta is located 250 meters above sea level in the region of San Martin, Peru. It is located about one hour south-east of Tarapoto, at the foot of the Huallaga River, which is a tributary of the Amazon river. Due to the immediate proximity to the water, boats are the main means of transportation. People, animals and products, as well as cacao, are transported through the river.
Chazuta also has an ancient ancestral culture. Cacao farming drives the economic development of the region, creates jobs and thus helps to reduce poverty.
