Senderos and Miradores - Hiking Puerto Nariño - Colombia

A network of trails and lookout towers help visitors appreciate the natural beauty of this region. The journey to any of these attractions begins on Carrera 6, where signs begin to point you in the direction for each. Although a guide is not necessary, one would help you understand and learn about the flora and fauna better.

Mirador Naipata—From Naipata, Casa en el Árbol, just outside Puerto Nariño, you can see the Río Loretoyacü flow into the Amazon.

Mirador Mowa
—This tower overlooking the Río Amazonas and jungle is located in the indigenous village 20 de Julio, a 30-minute walk or 10-minute boat ride from Puerto Nariño.

Sendero Ecológico
—A path leading through the forest that shows medicinal, fruit, hardwood and ornamental plants.

Sendero Ecológico Mitológico—A project of the students at the Internado de San Francisco. A guided tour of this trail will teach you about the ecology and mythology of the jungle flora.

Sendero Ecológico Nama Aruku
—The Path of Knowing is designed and maintained by students of INEAGRO to show the botanical richness of the region and the ancestral uses of plants.

Sendero Interpretativo Puerto Nariño San Martín
