Colombia: Cruising on the Amazon from Leticia
Getting to any more remote natural places in the Amazon basic around the tri-border area inevitably requires a boat transfer on Amazon. The river is massive and appears muddy-brownish-whitish in color due to a lot of sediments (in fact, this is the northern tributary of the Amazon – Rio Branco aka White). Lots of debris and floating logs in the water that your boat has to navigate. Also quite a lot of small boats traversing up and down the river and connecting the communities in Colombia and Peru and further down to Brazil.
