Leticia Amazonas is a city located in the middle of the jungle and is the capital of the Colombian Amazonas State. As tourism increase more than 40% due to the ending of the war, we didnt got prepare for only english speaking tourism and thats why is really important the volunteers now in the Amazon.
As tourism grew after the peace treatment with the Farc, Colombia became a hot spot for foreigners travelers. Every year more people come to visit our country but English is now a big problem. We didn’t got prepare and now we urgently need volunteers to translate Spanish to English or Spanish to German.
