The Tanimboca natural reserve is a protected and preserved area, located 11 kilometres from Leticia, by taxi or mini taxi (tuk-tuk). Generally, in this environment, you can learn the importance of the Amazon ecosystem. Also, there are great activities to practice. For instance, canopy and kayaking. On the way to Tanimboca, the main road of Leticia called “Los kilómetros”, there are remarkable contrasts between the urban and the native life. This road is almost 18 kilometres away; for example, in kilometre 7 is the Huitoto indigenous community. And between km 9-11 is the coexistence of indigenous and settlers, this combination exposes Leticia’s urban growth in this area.
The reserve is well known for its canopy tour with a dossel among trees, which allows you to slide from one tree to another, 35 meters up in the air. Using cables, you can rise to the top of the tree where the view is impressive. Standing at the top, you truly experience the beauty of the rainforest and the adrenaline rush of adventure.
