THE JUNGLE TOWN LETICIA - AMAZONAS - COLOMBIA
 
Leticia is located in triple border with Tabatinga (Brasil) and Santa Rosa (Peru) and acessible by plane (from Bogota and Iquitos) or boat (from Iquitos or Manaus) only.  The regualar boat from Manaus to the sister town Tabatinga takes 7 to 9 days, the boat from Iquitos to Santa Rosa 3 days. From Bogota Leticia can be reached only by plane.
 
Even though it is a remote Colombian city, Leticia is very peaceful and isolated from the problems of the rest of the country (FARC). The origin of the name ¨Leticia¨ is misterious, one legend states, that a soldier felt in love with an indian woman, and named the settlement after her name.
 
Most Letician inhabitants work for government authorities (army, police, administration), some earn their livelyhood by means of fishing and tourism. The five star DECAMERON hotel chain has recently opened their TICUNA lodge downtown.
 
Popular are jungle trips to the nearby Amazon jungle, the natural reserve MARASHA in Peru, the national park AMACAYACU, the Ticuna settlement PUERTO NARINO and the visit of communities of the TICUNA, YAGUA,  HUITUTO and BORA tribes. Near the tributary river YAVARI can be found zones with virgin tropical forest, the natural reserve PALMARI and MATIS and MAYURUNA indians.
