    Great day in Monkey Island

    by colombiantraveler Written Feb 21, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Isla de los Micos (Monkey Island), located 35 kilometers from Leticia, on the Amazon River, is one of the favorite one-day tours that you can take. It is a natural reserve of 450 hectares, where you can literally share quality time with local monkeys that live in freedom and will approach to you to eat from the bananas you have for them. But, more than the little monkeys, the most important characteristic of the island is its natural environment. We enjoyed a lot a long walk through the forest with an indigenous guide who taught us about the secrets of the jungle. You can also navigate in a typical canoe in one of the most peaceful and beautiful lakes I have ever known (Lake Tucuchira). Additionally, for the extreme sports lovers, there is the possibility of climbing trees and get to know the characteristics and conditions of the upper part of the jungle or canopy. After all these activities and a buffet lunch we found very gratifying to rest in the hammocks they had prepared for us close to the river.
