Puerto Nariño is 2 hours away from Leticia by boat. This little town is peaceful and eco-friendly because cars and motos are forbidden! It’s the opposite of Leticia :).

There are four departures per day to get to Puerto Nariño. 

When going to the Amazon rainforest, decide in advance if you want to book a multi-day trip into the jungle. If it’s not the case, then it will be more pleasant to stay in Puerto Nariño.

There are enough activities for a couple of days.
