The Amazonian rainforest is one of our most precious gifts in the world.
A home to an extensive variety of flora, fauna, rivers, lakes, animals, medicinal plants and indigenous tribes, the Amazon which occupies 35% of Colombia’s southern territory is a must see when visiting Colombia, full of adventure and a pure nature experience at its finest!
Arriving into Leticia the Capital of the Colombian Amazon, you will find yourself at the doorstep to the neighbouring parts of Peru and Brazil and at a gateway to a marvel of places to explore.
Leticia is hospitable and safe and offers all the requirements for visitors in this surprisingly small bustling city, such as internet, cafes, restaurants, hotels, tours and activities and both a river port and airport to arrive by.
From here you can arrange to visit a number of special sites within the Amazonian basin, with plenty of activities to take on.
Indigenous cosmology communities can be visited, observation of birds, pink dolphins, caimans and other wildlife, ecological walks and treks within the evergreen jungle, kayaking along windy rivers and tranquil lakes, canopy tours, interactions with monkeys, crafts shopping, fishing and much, much more.
One sight which can’t be missed in particular is the very rare pink-dolphins that can be found along the Amazonian rivers and more specifically in the Tarapoto Lake where they sometimes like to swim alongside motor run boats.
The education and protection is vital in this ecological wonder, and those who visit, will leave with lives far more enriched.

A document to show you have had these vaccinations will need to be provided. An expert guide is needed to explore any part of the jungle whilst there.
