On the way to Puerto Narino, the ¨rapidos¨ are passing also the indian communities ¨SANTA SOFIA¨ and ¨LA LIBERDAD¨. Most organized tourist groups stop there for just a few minutes to see the community or to purchase handycraft, however, especially the Yagua community ¨La Liberdad¨ is worth a longer stay, as the indigenous Yaguas there are still preserving their culture and language.
 
¨Amazonaslife¨ has build up contact with Gustavo, one of the most important Yaguas in the community. He is the SHAMAN (traditional indigenous doctor) and is pleased to receive visitors in his home and guide them through the community, plantations and virgin rainforest, including overnight stays.
 
Avoid the huge upmarks imposed by travel agents and operators, make DIRECT CONTACT with the SHAMAN of the Yaguas.
 
phone: +57 3143044259  (ask for GUSTAVO, the SHAMAN of the Yaguas)
 
Estimated expenses: gratification of 50.000 Pesos per day for the guiding service, 10.000 Pesos per person for the overnight stay plus food and beverages.
