La Candelaria is Bogota’s heart and soul, from its humble beginnings this is the oldest part of the city and the Plaza Bolivar (Main Square) are high on any visitor’s agenda. The Square is the focal point of this historic part of the city.

With your guide the next stops will be the Gold Museum. The Museum is within the premises of the Banco de la Republica, and is one of the finest collections of Pre Hispanic gold in the world. This is a “must see” when in Bogotá, with more than 35,000 pieces of pre-Colombian gold works in the collection. The golden raft is one of the focal point of the display and was the driving force in the Spaniards quest to find El Dorado.

Fligth to the Jungle of Colombia

This morning we will escort you to the airport for your flight to Leticia in the Amazon region of the country.

The Amazon River runs through the Amazon jungle and is a lifeline for so many species and humans alike. The river provides water, fishing and habitat and without it many thousands of people and a far greater number of species of birdlife, mammals and marine life would not exist today. From its humble source in the Peruvian Andes to its immensity at the Atlantic coast of Brazil this giant eco-system is truly one of the natural world’s greatest marvels.

Mocagua Community / Wildlife Spotting

The people that live in the jungle are its beating heart and as important to the local eco-system as the jungle itself. Today you will visit a local indigenous community; the Mocagua community are very proud of their culture and connection to the jungle and are happy to share the experience they have with visitors. You will have a chance to visit this local community, learn about their way of life and interact with them as you start to understand how this delicate ecosystem all fits together.After a local lunch, there will be some time spent observing the river and local wildlife, there is an opportunity to engage in some local fishing if you like, then it’s time to hit the river once again. The idea this afternoon is spotting the famous pink river dolphins that inhabit this region. These mystical and graceful creatures are amazing to watch as they move up and down the river.

You will learn about these wonderful marine mammals and the stories the locals tell of them. Then late afternoon it’s back to the lodge to rest and dinner.
