What is Leticia like and surroundings?

Unlike other capitals of Colombia, Leticia is actually a small town with basic infrastructure. It is also a destination away from other major cities in the country, a condition that increases some costs of products and services in the area.

However, it is an important port for trade and connection with Brazil  and Peru  because of its proximity to the Amazon RiverLeticia is a strategic point of the so-called “three borders” (Colombia, Brazil, Peru), and it is a border town with the Brazilian city of Tabatinga (36.371 inhabitants). That is why, there is an important commercial exchange with Brazil, which allows using the two national currencies (Colombian peso and Brazilian real). In addition between the two nationalities speak a mixture of Spanish and Portuguese creating what is called “portoñol”.

Leticia and Tabatinga seem to form a single city because an avenue of free access joins them. You can take a tuk-tuk (motorcycle taxi) to go to the “street of friendship”, where there are several shops. But Tabatinga is not a safe place, because tourists can often be victims of robberies and assaults and it is not advisable to visit without a guide or late at night.  

Another characteristic of Leticia is that the majority of its population is of indigenous origin and different ethnic communities  such as Uitotos, Tikunas, Tucanos, Yaguas and others. As mentioned above, one of the interesting activities you can do in Leticia  is to visit the Museo Etnográfico del Banco de la República, where you can learn about the fascinating ethnic diversity of the Amazon and its cultures.

All these peculiarities of Leticia make it an authentic place to know as a natural and rustic complement that offers the Amazon.

More rain or less rain?

The climate of the Amazon is warm and very humid, it is one of the zones of the world with more rains. Periods with more or less rainfall gives specific characteristics on the environment.

Less rain (June-September)

In early June, after the frosts of Brazil, between one and two weeks you will enjoy a few days of a delightful climate, more refreshing. Then the summer begins, with temperatures of 30 º C (86°F), but there is always the possibility of rain, shorter and with more intervals. It is a more benign and pleasant climate to visit the Amazon, with less chance of developing malaria and dengue. Lowering the water level in the Amazon river is easier to see the mating of the dolphins, as well as more mammals in the internal lakes. Also when the flow of rivers and lakes come down, some clear sandy beaches appear, and it is possible to bathe. But at sunset, the mosquitoes increase because the wet sand attracts them.

More rain (December-May)

There is another kind of nature. It is to live the thickness of the rainforest. It is wilder, indomitable, unpredictable, rebel: more jungle! That is the jungle, it is the impotence of not being able to dominate nature, but it is life in all its processes. And it is real greenery! For those who like authentic nature can find all the sense in this period. But you have to be prepared to face more mosquitoes and a lot of water falling from the sky!
