Restaurants
Like accommodations, food in the heart of the jungle costs more, though you’ll still be able to find a daily plate special for under $2. Not only can you can fresh produce and meats at the municipal market (daily 6 a.m.-4 p.m. Ca. 8, half-block from the river), but it also has inexpensive eateries, some with a river view. Be careful about drinks when dining at the market. General stores and supermarkets are all along Calle 8. Bakeries, which seem to occupy every corner, are great places to go to grab a cheap breakfast or snack. At night, check out the tent city of grill stands that sets up on the corner of Avenida Internacional and Calle 7.

Stock up on purified water at Gaseosas Leticia (Ca. 8, between Cra. 8 and 9), which has a 24-hour, seven-day dispenser. If you bring your own clean container, five liters costs $0.35 and 20 liters $0.75. It also sells full garrafones (jugs); five liters cost $2 and 20 liters go for $11.25.

While in Leticia, be sure to try some of the local delicacies, like mojojoy (a worm), or the pirarucĂş and gamitana fish. Another regional fish you might encounter on your plate is acarahuasĂş, otherwise known to aquarium enthusiasts as the Oscar (Cichlidae astronauts ocellatus).

Nightlife
Leticia has a pretty active nightlife scene, though most in-town establishments are closed Tuesday nights. The most grooving nights are Wednesday to Saturday. There are all types of places, from the sit-down bars to cumbia-samba-vallenato-reggaeton discos. Along Avenida Internacional, heading to the border, there are establishments that are open all week and until dawn. However, be advised that these double as strip joints and brothels.
