Arrival to Leticia at Vasquez Cobo airport, from there we´ll take you by road 11 kilometers to our natural reserve, where you can enjoy a grilled fish for lunch a typical Amazon meal. In this place we can talk about your expedition, review the activities schedule and then we´ll make a short walk through the jungle to the tree house where you’ll spend the night.
After the installation arrangements and a short break at the cabins, one of our guides will take you to a night walk through the jungle where you can appreciate the jungle’s nocturnal wild live. For dinner we´ll serve you a delicious pizza “a la Amazonas” and afterwards your guide will bring you back to the tree house.
After a coffee and some fruits you will climb to the canopy about 100 feet above the ground.
There are 3 observation platforms connected with steel cables. The access to the first platform is by rope climbing. Crossing from one platform to another is through a zip line, by which you practically “fly” from tree to tree. Descend is done from the last platform by rappel. After finishing the canopy tour you´ll visit our small reptile zoo and then we will serve you a good breakfast.
Then you will continue with a jungle expedition for the next two days. The first day you´ll have about a 3 to 4 hours hike to get to a creek where you will build your first night camp sleeping in hammock. After dark the indigenous guide takes you for a walk along the creek to look for some exotic animals and do some fishing.
During this day you will see huge trees and with some luck your guide will spot some animals, he will show you how easy it is for them to find everything necessary to survive having fun. In the afternoon you´ll put up a camp and at night you go for a walk if you like.
After breakfast, you`ll walk back to Tanimboca and get your things, then we´ll bring you to Leticia to get a boat which will take you up the Amazon river to a beautiful Natural Reserve at the Peruvian side of the river.
The way of getting to this Natural Reserve depends of the time of the year. During the dry season you`ll have to walk around 45 minutes through a path in the jungle. During the rainy season you`ll take a small canoe.
At this lake, there are a lot of birds, monkeys and other wild live that can be easily observed, delicious meals and activities such as cannoning and hiking. The giant lotus flower and the huge Ceiba tree can be also seen at this place. At night you’ll have the opportunity to go in search of caimans, with luck you`ll find one, catch it, take pictures with it and then release it again.
You’ll spend the night at “Marasha” natural reserve.
In morning you`ll start your trip back to the Amazon River where a boat takes you to the spots where you can observe the pink and gray dolphins. On the way back to Leticia you will stop at the Peruvian island Santa Rosa for lunch. In the afternoon you can watch a spectacle at the main park in Leticia.
