    The fact that you can sleep in the middle of the jungle, the activities of canopy support much risks the traveller looking for addressing this subject, since it is the main attraction, the sighting of animals during the night is beautiful, very good and you learn a lot with the guides.

    100% recommended, near the city, see fauna above all frogs miniature, monkeys, insects, and beautiful birds. Climbing rope, two exciting canopys, decline in some abseiling and walking on the suspension bridge. Spectacular!

    To go to the Amazon definitely great recommendation is to go with a guide, and no doubt Elvis caves is the best of all. He is in love with jungle, its plants, animals and communities that live there. Elvis cares at all times for you, is aware of everything with a smile from side to side. He is a connoisseur in the depth of the forest, especially of birds. If you want to contact him his email is elcuma@yahoo.com Tanimboca is a place that is just a few minutes of Leticia. A few narrow Rails you receive and when you arrive you can find a large Longhouse where is the dining room. The rooms are independent two-level houses, the first is a room with outdoor bath and the second is a double bed and two bunk. The houses are very comfortable. From there, it will make Canopy which is of the best experiences that can live in the Amazon. People who you receive are very friendly and are concerned at all times of your security. In the evening we started a night walk, but due to a heavy downpour we had to interrupt. Recommendations: bring insect repellent, rubber boots (although I think that there they lend them yourself), bring snacks for between meals do not give you anything, take a good hat and long-sleeved shirts. The food is loose, they give you a choice of meat, chicken or fish. We ate fish which is River and was very good. We went with two children, 6 and 9 years. It was delicious and enjoyed every animal we saw.

    Amazing people. Amazing place. Goran and his staff are among the most kind, friendly and professional that I have ever encountered. Tanimboca is an enchanting place in the heart of the Amazon. A MUST Visit Destination for ANY Traveler who wants an up close and personal, life-changing and safe Amazon adventure. Goran and his staff handled everything!!! Right from my arrival in and overnight layover in Bogota (both ways). They arranged my hotel, first class transportation to and from Hotel with reservation... and everything else from the time I landed in Leticia until I departed. Highly recommended for Western travelers who are not so good with Spanish (and of course) those who are. Goran and his staff will create an experience that will suit your interests and level or adventure. Ask Goarn about his handcrafted knives and he may even let you buy one. WOW!!! And it's awesome that the value of the US Dollar in Colombia makes the stay at Tanimboca (and all the other cool stuff) all less than half the price you would expect to pay. Just do it!!!

    This reserve is located 11 km from Leticia on the only road that has the city to the North, the most attractive of the reserve is to stay overnight in cabins which are found in the trees that it is a super experience, also offer canopy, kayaking and the night walk, where many insects and animals are. The cabin is very comfortable and has everything you need for a good night, our guide Richard was very kind and has a good knowledge about the different species of flora and fauna that are found in l jungle. Highly recommended 👍
