This is a perfect tour for only two days in the Amazon but it has to start at 8 am and finish the next day at 5 pm. My tour in Leticia Amazonas and surroundings is a mix of Culture – My Village – Jungle – Lakes – Native Communities – Adventure – Wildlife and all what you can experience about the Amazon.
I just update all my tour with all the detail information, so you can really know what to expect and what are you booking. Please be advice that if you read all detail information you can have a much better experience.
Choosing the best tour for your flight itineraries
Depending on your flights schedules and timing, we can recommend you which tour to take. My best recommendation is to have 4 days in the Amazon and we can do a full two day trip which is enough, if you dont have enough time dont worry that we can recommend which tour will be better for you. Also two day flight schedule is fine but arriving the first day no later than 12:00 pm.

Different Leticia Amazonas Jungle Tour Options for your Flight Schedule
PLAN A. TOUR STARTING AT 8.00 AM (FIRST DAY) AND FINISHING AT 5:00 PM (FOURTH DAY)
We highly recommend to book with any air company 6 day flights and will be like this:
1st Day (8 AM) – Here we will start tour at 8:00 am but we will be picking you up around 6.45 – 7:00 am, meaning that you have to be ready and already have breakfast so we can take the 8:00 am boat. We will be arriving around 10:00 am and ready to do activities. (check our leticia amazonas jungle tour activities information bellow the website).
2nd Day (5 PM) – Activities til taking the boat at 3:30 and be around 5:00 pm in Leticia. Also you can stay at our village Puerto Nariño with a good price and come back the next day at the 7.30 am boat.

PLAN B. TOUR STARTING AT 1.30 PM (FIRST DAY) AND FINISHING AT 5:00 PM (FOURTH DAY)
This plan is if you have just enough days to enjoy the Amazonas. Latam airlines has a flight arriving around 11:45 am and its perfect to have all organize and taking the 1:30 boat to my village.
1st Day Starting at 1:30 pm – Flight Arrival to Leticia (no later than 12:30 pm) in which we will be picking you up at the airport to organize everything such as equipment and payment.

Prices are in cash but if you pay with credit card i have to add 50.000 pesos per persona, its what the bank charges here for the bank transfer.
Atms in Leticia only have 300.00 COP per transaction and around 3 per day.
If you book flights with Avianca and want to start tour the same day then i recommend to charter a private boat with a price of 125.000 extra per persona or do tour the next day at 8 a.m.
Where does my tour take place?
I live in a paradise that my father’s help to organize and colonize called Puerto Nariño in the aticoya region. Law does not allow us to have cars or motorcycles… it is a paradise and I am also a king here.

Why does the translator is not local?
Tourism is just new in Colombia, I mean like more tourist than normal in the last years. We really were not prepared that lots of non spanish speakers foreigners where going to come so nobody or barely someone speak english in Leticia Amazonas. I can count with my fingers who speaks english in Leticia and sorroundings.
Now with more visitors in Leticia Amazonas, I get cool volunteers who help my guides to translate and at the same time they are teaching english to them. After one year, one of my guide speaks english and the others are studying hard learning.
Understanding the Colombian Amazon
People, our history haven’t been really cool. Since slavery, destruction, animal trafficking, ngo, land invasion, excesive huntig, Pablo Escobar and other staff I think we are getting recover. Our Amazonas is a big zoo but I dont have animals in a jail. Climate changes, full moon, people using deet 100% or making lot of noise can be more difficult to spot animals but we spent lot of time while we are not working to find the spots. Some animals are just difficult to spot such as a manatee, jaguar or anaconda.
From February to late May is all flooded in ome area which we will do lot of boat activity. From later July is all dry and we can do trekking on the flooded area.
Lot of people don’t know but in 80s in the Amazon the drug empire from Pablo Escobar was done in the Amazon and I know all the histories. If you want to know more at dinner i can tell you the history.
What to bring to Leticia Amazonas?
Sun screen, mosquito repellant (with DEET), trekking snacks, 4 Long sleeve Tshits/Shirts, 2 Long trousers, 2 shorts, 4 socks, a head light or torch and a hat. We’ll give you boots and a poncho. You can bring you phone and camera but make sure you have a case to keep them dry if it rains
