Then, visit the ecological community of Puerto Nariño and the small indigenous community of Tarapoto for a jungle walk, traditional piranha fishing, caiman safari at night, and overnight stay in the traditional cabin. Finally, cross over the border one more time to San Antonio, Peru, to spot sloths in the jungle and then return to Colombia to visit Alto del Aguila, a place in the jungle where you can see and feed wild monkeys.
