      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.

      Leticia... Day 83

      We know now why we don't sleep in dorms. 1/ we're over 30, 2/ we are married, 3/ we're tight, but not that tight, 4/ we don't like to be disturbed during the night. It is only on the rare occasion that we resort to this option and in our desperation yesterday, we settled for a 5 bed dorm as there were no private rooms available. Having no lockers …

      On the Tuesday morning, me and Katie set off to Bogota airport to catch our 11am flight down to Leticia - the southern most point of Colombia, which sits in the Amazon basin, nestled between Brazil and Peru. This route is well and truly off the usually beaten gringo trail, that generally heads down through Ecuador on to Peru. Our journey didm;t get …

      Leticia and the boat

      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 …

      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 …

      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 …
