Amazonian Food You MUST TRY in Leticia Amazonas

By on 2013/09/06

Leticia Amazonas is a paradise in Colombia. I wrote a article about Leticia being the most safest city in Colombia but among other things which make Leticia more special it’s three borders (Peru – Colombia – Brasil). This makes a mixture of typical, native gastronomy and a new type called Amazonian Food.

Please, don’t come to Leticia to eat a $7,000 COP budget meal, at least try one of our best Amazonian dishes. We have a fish diet because soil is not recommended for live stock and beef is quite expensive. Visiting Leticia is to try a Ceviche, Patarashca de Pescado, Cecina con Tacacho, Casabe Pizza, Chicharron de Pirarucu or a meat filled Mojojoy Worm.
