 Note: If you have the opportunity to visit an indigenous community it is essential to respect its inhabitants.
Before taking a photo or video recording you must ask permission, a controversial issue is whether or not we should pay for the photos; In the most remote places, not used to mass tourism, people usually do not ask for any financial remuneration for taking pictures.
However, in the most touristic places, asking for coins has become a tradition. We will be the ones to decide what to do, although we must be clear that if they ask us for money we must pay or not take the picture. We must avoid collecting samples of wildlife or native flora and carrying items that can contaminate.
