"A Rainy Forest"

A large pool of water covered by forest. This place is very rainy and you will find plenty of water here. The main source of transportation in this area is a motorcycle. However, taxis are also available. The good thing is you can enjoy breakfast in Tabatinga, lunch in Peru Santa Rosa and dinner in Leticia.

Amacayacu National Park

Amacayacu National Natural Park is a national park located along the Amazon River in the Amazonas Department in the south of Colombia. The word "Amacayacu" means "River of the Hamocs" in the indigenous language Quechua. The Ticuna people currently inhabit a part of the park.

The park comprises 4,220 square kilometres of jungle, a significant portion of which is annually flooded by the Amazon River during the wet season. The park's elevations vary from 200 to 300 meters above sea level, and temperatures in the park vary only slightly on an annual basis, from 26 to 28 degrees Celsius.

The park is of considerable interest to scientists. Many zoological specimens have been collected in the park.
