A visit to Colombia’s pristine Amazon jungle will open your eyes to another world.
Covering a vast share of the country, this immaculate region represents the ultimate adventure for tourists who seek to connect with remote towns, natural reserves, wildlife parks or indigenous reservations.
As the plane descends into Leticia, the capital of the Colombia´s Amazon, an infinite lush carpet of green reveals an endless stretch of gigantic trees, combined with a powerful river, the largest in the world, covering 6,800 kilometers, home to 212 mammal species, 195 different kinds of reptiles and more than 145 indigenous communities.
Whether you’re trekking through the abundant forest on foot, wandering along the winding rivers in a traditional canoe or navigating a kayak through lush mangroves, you can be sure of an extraordinary wildlife experience.
You can expect to see some of the world’s most exotic species, from wild monkeys swinging in the canopy above to pink river dolphins and the mysterious jaguar, not to mention the 500 species of birds that have been recorded here. Watch for toucans, tanagers, hummingbirds and other rarities like nowhere else in the world.
Seeing the unique flora and fauna is not the only highlight of a visit the Amazon Basin. Meeting the various indigenous tribes, that consider this rainforest their home, and discovering their rituals, culture, beliefs and understanding their relationship with the natural world is a unique experience that allows visitors to evoke the authentic rhythms of the Amazon.
At the point where Colombia, Peru and Brazil meet, indigenous cultures such as the Ticunas, Huitotos and Yucunas share their medicinal plants that are part of ancient traditions.
We recommend at least 4 nights in this breathtaking jungle to discover the vast array of activities, such as tree-climbing or canopy, jungle hiking at day or night, witnessing the world’s largest lily pad, the Victoria Regia, swimming with the pink river dolphins, visits to remote indigenous settlements, spending the night in a Ceiba tree and eating the pirarucú fish, fariña and many exotic fruits.
For those who love ecological and adventure tourism, we will ensure you experience a true taste of the Amazon!!
