Isla de los Micos - Other Activity Leticia - Colombia

Isla de los Micos (Island of the Monkeys) is a standard stop on tours of the Amazon. Thirty-five kilometers (21 mi) upstream from Leticia, this 450-hectare (1,112 ac) island is home to our distant primate cousins, capuchin monkeys鈥攁 not-so-elusive bunch of creatures. Take an interpretive hike through primary tropical forest, observe the flora and fauna, and go fishing and kayaking on Lago Tucuchira. Birdwatching is particularly rewarding. Tours visit Huitoto and Tikuna settlements on this island, too.
