Amazon is an excellent playground for adventurers, and it attracts more and more tourists every year. 

Many travelers like to fly to Leticia and look for a tour once they arrive. By doing so, they can pick the cheapest local operator. While it’s an economical option, I wouldn’t recommend it. Some local agencies are illegal, and the quality of the tours varies a lot!

However, you don’t have to plan your 4 days with an agency if you don’t have the budget for it. There are many activities you can do by yourself. Take the bus to visit Mundo Amazonico and Tanimboca or the boat to stop in a local community.

Another option is to book in advance one of the fantastic eco-lodges around the Amazon river.

Don’t forget to include the little town of Puerto Nariño, nicknamed the green lungs of Colombia, in your Colombia itinerary!

Use speedboats and kayak to travel through thick jungle, fish piranhas, look for birds and monkeys and build campsites so you can spend an unforgettable night surrounded by noises and scary shadows. 

So, ready for the adventure?
