    Aero Republica is just about your only option from Bogota, with flights on Sundat, Monday, Wednesday and Friday every week. Since they are the only game in town don't be supprised if they are not exactly on schedule. Confirm, and bring a book to the airport.

    special hitch hiking

    There are so few roads around Leticia that you almost never travel by land. Our accommodations were in a small farm 11 kilometres away from the city and to get into the city we usually got the “colectivo” – an old Volkswagen van – that was cheap and was available every 30 minutes. It was cheap and nice to make that little voyage. There were two “colectivos”: one between the city and the “kilometro 11” and another between the city and the “kilometro 20”. Once, we lost the colectivo and we hitch hiked a small coca-cola truck that was funny :)

    Preparing the trip

    As Leticia is on the edge of the Amazonas river, most of the trips are done by boat. There are two kinds of boats around: the regular boats that travel between cities and take several days up and doan the Amazonas; and the "Lancha Rapida" or small boats with a powerful engine that will carry about six people. This smaller boats are rented in the local travel agencies or directly at the dock - less advisable - and you mus agree with the owner the trip where to go, deparure hour, how many people and the price. Agree all the details - even the engine's power - because the owner of the boat will have to rent the engine to the engine's owner and you don't want to get a less powered engine to the boat. Agree also the details about the water supply, food or meals included in the price.

    It is advisable that you end your trip before the sunset because the river is full of floating timber that will be dangerous at night to a small boat like yours and can turn the boat, and you, surelly, don't want to take a swim at night with alligators.

    There are some travel agencies in the center of the town where you can rent this service.
