Reserva Tanimboca - Other Activity Leticia - Colombia

Dosel is the term used for the highest part of the tree canopy, usually about 35-40 meters (115-130 ft) up. Climb to those heights at Reserva Tanimboca and explore an 80-meter (300-ft) trail from tree-to-tree, through a neighborhood inhabited by lizards, birds and monkeys ($40 per person). Other activities include ecological land walks and kayaking on the R铆o Tacana ($15). Night excursions through the jungle ($20-50, depending on number of participants, including transportation) or in search of caimans are other options. Reserva Tanimboca also has lodging available in treehouses; one house fits three people and the other sleeps five (about $60 per person, depends on number of people).
