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.
