Afterwards we will return back to Leticia where we will go walk around the local museum and then go to the park to see the hundreds of birds flock here for the night. An incredible sight in itself.
Evening meal will be at a restaurant of our choosing before you settle down for the night ready for the following days activity.

Your lunch in the rain forest will be a meal prepared by us.
During the day your guide will share his knowledge and tips and hopefully we will get to explore the interesting plants, species and more wildlife.

Once we have had our lunch we will start our return journey back out of the jungle ready for our transport to whisk us back to Leticia and our accommodation for the night.
We will have evening meal in Leticia and then you have the options to relax for the night or explore a bit of Leticia and its quaint nightlife.
