Where to stay

Below you can see some of the wonderful places we have recommended for this journey.

Heliconia Reserva £££££

  • Colombia
  • Safari and Wildlife Lodge

Located on a quiet tributary of the Javari River, just over the border into Brazil (59 miles by river from Leticia) and surrounded by jungle vegetation and heliconias hide the Heliconia Reserva jungle lodge. Maloka Indian thatched-roof wooden cabins offer simple living with charming open bathrooms and garden views and are spread out among trails connected by wooden paths. The terrace bar-restaurant serves home-made local dishes and there are activities such as canoeing, canopy trails, bird and dolphin watching, as well as walks and visits to native communities.

Calanoa Amazonas £££££

  • Colombia
  • Safari and Wildlife Lodge

Calanoa Amazonas is located in the heart of the Colombian jungle bordering both Peru and Brazil, 30 minutes by boat from Leticia. Each cabin is a two storey A-frame structure. Downstairs has a netted double bed with its own private bathroom and the loft space in each cabin can also sleep up to six people, so a great option for families. A boardwalk connects the cabins with the social areas and doubles as an excellent platform for watching birds and monkeys.
