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 surroundings.

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, excessive huntig, Pablo Escobar and other stuff 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 one area which we will do lot of boat activity. From later July is all dry and we can do trekking on the flooded area.
