From Leticia, board a shuttle boat and sail up the Amazon River for two hours to Puerto Nariño. This small village, located on the banks of the Amazon, is pleasant, authentic, and extremely peaceful. Motorized vehicles are not allowed there.
There are four shuttles per day that make the round trip.
When planning your stay in the Amazon, decide in advance if you want to book a multi-day jungle trip. If this is not your wish, choose Puerto Nariño instead, it is much wilder, quieter, and more pleasant than Leticia.
In addition, you can also organize a lot of activities directly on the spot.
