  • Puerto Nariño, often called "the natural cradle of Colombia", is a small ecological town, completely pedestrian and vehicle-free. It is a center of commerce and culture in the middle of the Colombian Amazon rainforest, surrounded by numerous indigenous communities and directly on the border with the Peruvian Amazon. Here is where you will meet your guide and take a small private boat to reach the communities and enter the jungle.


  • ​The only way to travel to Leticia is by plane from Bogota or Medellin, there are no roads or buses to Leticia due to the dense jungle.

  • During the tour, all transportation is by boat. To begin the tour, you will take a 2-hour trip in a speedboat on the grand Amazon River from Leticia to Puerto Nariño, where you will meet your guide.

  • From Puerto Nariño to the indigenous communities, you will take a private boat along smaller rivers and lakes that branch out into the Amazon River.


  • ​Accommodation is included during your tour. We collaborate with several hotels in the region and with indigenous communities that open their doors to travelers who want to spend the night. These include Hotel Manguare and Hotel Waira in Puerto Nariño. We also collaborate with the indigenous community of Tarapoto where you can stay overnight in the traditional cabin of their community, next to the beautiful Tarapoto Lake. During the dry season (June - December), you have the option to sleep in a jungle camp in hammocks or tent along the Tuirupu trail in the jungle near the indigenous community of San Francisco.
