About Tingo Maria

In the pre-Columbian period the province of Leoncio Prado was inhabited by indigenous tribes as the Tulumayos and Cholones in the riverbank of the Magdalena river; those tribes penetrated into the jungle, since the Inca Empire was moving forward and nowadays there is a paved road at the area of Leoncio Prado with Pachitea.In the colonial period the high jungle region (Rupa Rupa) was controlled by several Spanish authorities. One of the founders of the nea...rby towns was Salazar, of the Orden de Jesus, while he was executing his religious roles.In 1938 the population is told that the land where they live were expropriated in their favor and from this momento they could live freely. The word Tingo comes from the quechua Word Tincco, which means meeting in reference to the rivers Huallaga and Monzon, and Maria was a settler who helped the travelers who wanted to cross the river, providing them food and lodging.
