Leticia and the boat

A travel blog entry by skannyboy


I spent the last couple of days in Bogotá looking at museums. I saw the small Gabriel Garciá Marquez exhibition on at the national library and also to the art gallery which consisted mainly of works by Fernando Boter, a famous Colombian artist known for drawing everything in large proportions. He even does his own versions of famous paintings, for …

The triple frontier

A travel blog entry by dan_and_casey


Our Amazonian boat journey ended at the triple frontier - this is the river junction shared by the towns of Tabatinga (Brazil), Leticia (Colombia) and Santa Rosa (Peru). We departed the boat, and with a number of our new friends (7 of us in total), we climbed into the back of a ute (with all of our big bags) and made the trip to the federal police …

Leticia - 3 countries in 20 minutes

A travel blog entry by monkeybusiness


We flew from Cali to Leticia as we were told that the boarder crossing to Peru is easier and less dangerous here. Leticia is nestled between Peru and Brazil and you can walk freely between the countries as long as you have the entry stamp from one of them. Which meant we got a good photo of Steph in brazil taken by Liam in Colombia whose passport …

Into the Amazon

A travel blog entry by stemaxc


From Cartagena on the Colombian Caribbean coast I flew to Leticia in the far south, deep in the jungle on the tri-border with Santa Rosa in Peru and Tabatinga in Brazil. I felt a bit deflated at this point as my goal for so long had been the Caribbean coast and having achieved this, I felt a bit lost. Colombia had been quite different to what I had …

Hello Amazon

A travel blog entry by upriver


With Leticia located in a remote, distant corner of Colombia, it's one place I thought I'd never get to, so flying here - there is no other option within Colombia - helped make up for the disappointment in Venezuela. Here the countries of Colombia, Peru and Brazil all share borders. Leticia and the bigger Brazilian town of Tabatinga have a street …

    A peaceful and quiet place not far from the centre. Reasonable prices and a friendly owner to chat about Colombian life and help you out if needed. Otherwise, just enjoy the serenity

    The hostel was sitauted a short walk from the centre on a huge piece of land complete with a lake almost on the border with Brasil. The bed was slightly expensive at COP20,000 and the guide book description of comfy beds is misguided. Hard thin matresses and pillows. The owner was very helpful. People head to bed early in these parts so not too much going on but I did meet my travel partner for the length of the Amazon to Belem.

    Your stay at Mahatu will be idyllic, as long as you go there aware that you are a guest at Gustav's house...not a hostel. You have to play by his rules, even if you dont know what they are. This guy is a few clowns short of a circus, but it is still a beautiful place to stay in Leticia. Just dont piss him off.
