Swedish Family Amazon Journey

I arrive to Leticia on Colombian Indepedence Day (July 20th) with the German-France couple really tired and with a lot of hungry, i have been traveling a day without eating breakfast and arriving to Leticia at 9:30.

I had already arrange my sister to pick the swedish family at the airport and luckily the plane arrive a little bit later so i can at least take a bath because i was smelling like raw jungle. As they got pick by my sister, the first thing was dropping them at the Hotel to met them and then telling me “Please we want jungle from the first day”. I had to change all the plans, went to eat a Brasilian lunch and heading to the jungle at my friends natural reserve.

We walk nearly 2 hours at the jungle, had a great time and the second request was to see the arrival of the parakeets. We saw the show and then having some Cassava Pizza for dinner.

For the next day was a good Amazon River kick visiting the monkey island, the lotus flowers and some fauna at a Peruvian town. My guide Jhonny pick us up at Puerto Narino and help us a little bit with the luggage so we can have a walk at the town. We took the fast boat, arrive to Naranjales, getting pick by our wooden boat and finally going to our Lodge at the Atacuari. We arrive nearly at 6:00 pm spotting some grey and pink dolphins on the way.

As we wake up the next day, I can called it the Piranaha contest because we cought nearly 9 big ones, some cat fish and setting up a jungle BBQ with the local kids. It was amazing because while they took a bath at the Tiger Lake, i was preparing some delicious grilled fish, yuca, and brazilian sousage “Calabreza”. It was fantastic to share with the family and kids the food we prepared and later on taking a jungle trek. That night only Emily and Sergui went to sleep at our jungle lodge.

On the forth day, we decide to go for a unique experience of bird watching 25 different bird species, more dolphins, more monkeys and having a delicious lunch prepared by our cookers. On the afternoon, we went for a different route where we spot toucans and more birds. At night, we decided to grilled some cat fish because they really love it and went for a Caiman Safari. We spot more than 3 but they were really scare so they decided to go to the lodge. I went with my guides again and we cought a small beautiful black caiman.

For the last day, we arrive to Leticia at 9:30 and getting ready at 11:00 AM to go to the airport. I rest for 2 days and waiting for the Australian couple.

I will be updating you for my next post with all the adventure with my next visitors.
