Colombia: Tanimboca Reserve – Treehouses

There simply isn’t a more exotic and awesome place to stay then at the Tanimboca Reserve, a 75 acre piece of protected jungle about 15km outside of the town of Leticia. But it’s not an ordinary lodge or hotel – it’s an experience. Upon arrival, you hike on wooden muddy paths through the jungle for about 45 minutes before arriving at treehouses – an insane place to spend the night. Treehouses are located high up in the canopy (and we stayed in the highest one possible) – a totally unbelievable experience. The jungle comes alive at night with insects in millions and monkeys jumping all around your treehouse. And in the morning – you walk out on your porch high above the ground (mosquitoes aplenty) with the first rays of sunlight and see even more – birds and monkeys everywhere.
