In order to avoid paying over £500 to get from Bogota to Sao Paolo (where I need to be for my return flight on the 27th) and to make things more interesting, I decided to head down to the tri-border (Columbia, Brazil & Peru) town of Leticia, smack bang in the middle of nowhere and on the banks of the Amazon river. The plan was simple, get there …

We had an ant infestation in our room overnight but the hostel were lovely about it and moved us to another room, however the same thing happened in our second room.
The guy who runs the place was also very helpful and gave us loads of info about boats to Iquitos.
It would have been nice to have been told the kitchen is locked overnight. We put food in the kitchen for the 12 hour boat ride to Iquitos but at 2am wwhen we had to leave, we couldn't get to it.
