WHY LIVE THIS EXPERIENCE IN COLOMBIA?
The Yahuarcaca lakes in the town of Leticia can be navigated by kayak through a jungle flanked by rubber trees and red cedars. Herons, eagles, hawks, and sloths distract travelers in search of lilies and the world's largest lotus. In other lakes such as Tarapoto, a little over a mile from Puerto Nariño, gray and pink dolphins can be seen swimming in the water.
The Victoria Regia, a water lily of up to 10 feet in diameter, can support almost 90 pounds in weight.
Roots and stems of lilies can reach 23 feet underwater.
You can also visit Chepeten, Long Tarapoto, and Round Tarapoto.
