Amazon

Amazon is the ideal playground for adventurers. This destination attracts more and more people every year.

Many travelers prefer to wait until they are in Leticia to choose their activities thinking they will get the best deals.
I don’t recommend you to do this because some local agencies are illegal and the quality of the tours offered varies greatly depending on the operators!

However, you don’t have to book 4 days with an agency if you don’t have the budget. There are some activities you can do on your own. Take the bus to go to Mundo Amazonico and Tanimboca or the boat to go to an indigenous community.

Another option may be to book in advance a great little eco-lodge on the banks of the Amazon or another river.

Don’t forget to add Puerto Nariño to your tour of Colombia. This charming little village is also nicknamed “the green lung of Colombia”.

Get onboard a traditional boat or kayak to go for a walk in the middle of the flooded jungle or to fish for piranha. Explore this famous lush forest and discover a rich and diverse flora and fauna. You also have the possibility to spend one or more nights in the jungle. Get ready to face the “scary noises” of its inhabitants and live an unforgettable experience.

So, are you ready for adventure?
