With the largest tropical rainforest and the most copious river in the world, the Amazonas Jungle we share with our neighbors is another of Colombias treasures. It is a prodigious place, not only for the aboriginal people that inhabit it and the sheer size of the river, but also for the life it spawns and nurtures on land and water.
In the Colombian part of a region many call Amazona, Leticia is a hospitable and comfortable city, surrounded by paths that lead to fascinating places in the Amazonas jungle.
For instance, the path to Tarapaca, a Huitoto Indian village, leads to the Tanimboca reservation, part of which is a 45-meter high platform built amid trees. In Tanimboca you can climb 35-meter high trees and slide 80 meters from one tree to another through the beautiful forest canopy.
River trips take visitors to extraordinary unimagined places, supposedly forbidden to those who have not experienced the jungle.
