Amazon Rain Forest Tours of Puerto Nariño and Amacayacu

We take a leisurely journey out of Leticia heading upstream on the main Amazon River. To the second town on the Colombian Amazon, Puerto Nariño is a small, friendly and attractive town, with its tree lined footpaths and very tranquil since there are No Cars or Motokars (Motorbike rickshaws)!

From Puerto Nariño we can enjoy the many cochas including Tarapoto Lake. Here under the guidance of our Miraña and Ticoya Indian guides we can expect to experience very special encounters with Caiman, Dolphins, Fish eagles, Capybaras and other wildlife of the lakes and forests. You will appreciate that there is so much to see and do in this part of the Amazon, with so few tourists and a real ambience and warmth from local people. Why not let us introduce you to a whole new world and join us on one of our next Amazon rain forest tours of Puerto Nariño and Amacayacu.
