The best time to visit Leticia Amazonas is anytime. Each season in the jungle offers visitors plenty of reasons to visit. Leticia Amazonas, is a city located in the middle of the Amazon Jungle. It has an average of 40,000 inhabitants and more than 70 different native communities. Our city is on the shore of the mighty Amazon River with an extension of 104 km. In this region, we only have 2 seasons which are “High Water Season” and “Low Water Season”. Remember, we are on a RAIN forest which means that can rain easily.

Our two ecosystems are Varzeas (Flooded Jungle) and High Land (Non flooded Jungle). The Flooded Jungle is one of the most iconic ecosystems in the Amazon, it is created due to the over raining at the head of the Amazon River. Normally, will flood for more than 4 meters deep coast regions. At low water season, we will have beaches in the middle of the Amazon.
