Serpentario Armero-Guayabal - Other Activity Leticia - Colombia

Slinking through the dense underbrush, coiling around the boughs of trees, slithering through the rivers’ roots are creatures whose eyes are watching you explore the Amazon. Some are venomous, others harmless, and still others would love to give you a big hug before swallowing you whole. All of these serpents play a role in keeping the jungle healthy. Serpentario Armero-Guayabal can help you get a close-up view of these snakes safely and will teach you about conservation efforts on their behalf.
