COLOMBIA - PERÚ - BRAZIL
The Amazon is a captivating region, encompassing the largest tropical rainforest on the planet, spanning approximately 7,000,000 square kilometers and spanning across 8 countries: Brazil, Peru, Colombia, Bolivia,
Ecuador, Guyana, Venezuela, and Suriname. It is also one of the most biodiverse places on Earth, serving as the habitat for approximately 30,000 plant species, 2,500 fish species, 1,500 bird species, 500 mammal species, 550 reptile species, and 2.5 million insect species.
Additionally, it is the homeland of approximately 420 tribes speaking 86 languages and 650 dialects. The Amazon provides 20% of the world’s oxygen and 20% of non-frozen freshwater along its riverbanks.
Exploring this region and immersing oneself in its dynamics is a rewarding adventure that leads us deep into the jungle to learn about its way of life, culture, cuisine, and the invaluable knowledge and ancestral wisdom it holds.
Approach with respect, as you are always welcome!
We will pick up travelers at Leticia Airport in Colombia. From there, we will travel in a private vehicle for approximately 10 minutes to reach Mundo Amazónico Reserve. Here, we will enjoy a lunch while our local guides introduce us to the dynamics of the Amazon region. We will learn about different ethnic groups, explore the geography, and have the opportunity to observe sacred plants such as Ayahuasca, Coca, Curare, and Barbasco, among others.
After savoring a typical regional lunch, we will head to another reserve in the afternoon, where we will spend the night in the midst of the jungle in treehouse accommodations. We will embark on a nighttime hike in search of wildlife, relish a delightful dinner, and finally, grant ourselves a well-deserved rest.
Following a special night in the middle of the jungle, surrounded by its interesting sounds, we’ll enjoy a very good breakfast and hike to a Maloca (indigenous sacred house) to get to know from up close different methods and processes implemented by the indigenous people Tikuna, Yucuna and Uitoto. We’ll spend the entire day with them, learning about the process for the mambe as an extraction of coca leaf, a plan weaving workshop, natural tattoos made with achiote and jagua, and traditional indigenous dance, we’ll also enjoy a traditional lunch cooked by our hosts, and during the afternoon, we’ll sail on the Amazon River to the Marasha reservoir on Peruvian land. At night we’ll sail around the lake looking for crocodiles and alligators to later enjoy dinner and a good night sleep.
Following a good night on the Marasha lake’s shore, we’ll hike for half an hour to visit a gigantic tree and bask in its
immensity. We’ll sail back on a canoe through the lake to have our lunch. Later we’ll return to the Amazon River and sail to the Tarapoto lake, where we can swim with dolphins and gaze upon the sunset, to finally reach the quaint and colorful village of Puerto Nariño.
After breakfast we’ll walk around the village, to later tour along three different countries (Colombia, Peru, and Brazil) through the Amazon, Sacambú, Gamboa, and Yavarí rivers. We’ll travel back to Leticia on the evening so we can enjoy the amazing spectacle of parakeets at Santander Park. At night we’ll enjoy a great dinner and a good night’s rest at a local hotel.
On the last day, we’ll have breakfast at the hotel and have the day off to tour the harbor or any other places that the travelers wish to visit, before returning to the airport and then take the flight home.
