The Arrieros project aims to revive the cultural heritage and history of the arrieros(cowboys) of Chile’s Andes mountains through cultural rescue projects and community tourism.

Through community tourism, they have been able to add a new source of income that has resulted in better livelihoods and needed infrastructure investments.
