In the heart of the Amazon, near the PNN Serranía de Chiribiquete, is the epicenter of
the indigenous cultures: Araracuara, cradle of the macaws and of the ancestral grandparents /
elementals: earth, air, water and fire. Entering the deep jungle of this territory is knowing
that we carry native blood in our veins and therefore it is necessary to return to our roots with
wisdom, sharing the sweet word that the mambe and the ambíl grant us.
If you feel the call of the jungle, you will notice that there is a small part of you that needs to connect
with that energy that the macaws emanate when singing freely through the skies.
You will understand the meaning of life by stripping yourself of material things. To travel to Araracuara,
just our presence is enough, our mobile, the repellent and some super changes of clothes
comfortable, our toiletries will not be necessary, since we will learn to use the
of the jungle, hence we return to our ancestors with their power plants, their gastronomy,
sacred places, oral tradition and word circles inside the Malocas.
The Andokes and Uitoto communities await you in this green corner of Colombia to remember
together the walk of the ancestors, hand in hand with grandfather Tabaco and mother Coca.

It's important to have on mind; anywhere in the world, inequality and poverty are two
prevailing phenomena these days. Before the conquest and the processes
colonizers executed in the Amazon region, the indigenous communities lived in
abundance, they had no diseases, they lived together in the best way and especially their
ancestry allowed passing from generation to generation the teachings of life and
nature, later, that culture of abundance would be overshadowed by colonial phenomena and
illegal economies, clearly influencing a transculturation of indigenous peoples,
changing the mentality of abundance to the mentality of money. The easy mentality remained
after the time of drug trafficking in the 80's; and being prevented by the scourges of
armed conflict in the 90's, gradually limited the emergence of such an important department
as is Caquetá; department with one of the largest water supplies in the country,
It houses about 80% of the PNN Chiribiquete and has sacred and pristine places for the
enjoyment and contemplation through nature tourism, and in this alternative, it is where
the hope of safeguarding culture and preserving our ecosystems, therefore, upon arrival
to Caquetá you will see from the air the golden gate(entrance) of the Colombian Amazon, you will feel the
climates, cold, warm and temperate, you will eat good cheese, pineapple, you will hear a beaten language
with a strong accent, you will feel very hot between 9 am and 04 pm and not only that, the
perspiration or sweating will be quite a lot due to the high relative humidity that we have in the
region, therefore, it will not be strange that you see men without shirts, others barefoot, without shoes. To the
When we reach the indigenous communities, we will see them with common and current clothing to that of
any person (product of cultural affectation in the past) except if it is a traditional event
of them, in which they perform their rituals and wear their typical costumes, therefore we will NOT find
half-naked indigenous people or something like that, the gastronomy is based on fish such as:
Bocachico, cachama, sábalo, gamitana or catfish such as: milkman, pintadillo and chontaduro, for
On the other hand, if you are totally ready for a cultural immersion, you will eat fariña, casabe,
cahuana, you will try the mambe and the ambíl, taking into account the recommendations of the grandparents
(taitas) indigenous. For the indigenous communities, the chili pepper and the
Yuca, also Amazonian fruits such as arazá, cupuazú, asaí, canangucha, among others.
In our journey we will not find luxury in the jungle, our accommodation will be communal
where you and no one else but you will know up close what it means to be and live as indigenous and
peasant in the extensive jungles of Caquetá, you will meet humble people, with a great
heart, who will share the best anecdotes and stories lived in the jungle.
Something very important for the expedition is to apply 3 days before the expedition 2 cm of
complex B or Thiamin to avoid mosquito bites during the day and mosquito bites at night, for
On the other hand, it is recommended (from experience) clothing that covers the arms and legs
completely and light colors (Fast drying preferably) NO dark colors,
that impressively attracts mosquitoes and mosquitoes, super comfortable clothes, loose, nothing
close to the body, the looser the better, a turkey that covers the back of the neck,
sunscreen, and an ideal buff for when the flies are very rowdy during the day.
Bring a change of shoes, a bathing suit for when we are in the puddles, enjoy them to the fullest. Some comfortable flip-flops to walk at night, pajamas, since, in Caquetá, in
hours of the night the temperature decreases and the breeze or the known serene is strong, achieving
make us feel cold.
The means of river transport are canoes, the latter have been built by the indigenous
and they will be our means of navigation through the Caquetá River, towards Angosturas and its pipes.
Taking into account the considerations mentioned above, you will have an immersion
memorable cultural event, thanks to your visit you will be helping the growth and sustainable development of
the indigenous communities that little by little see in tourism a hope, a sustenance for
their families and especially a paradigm shift, a change of mentality, a cultural rescue
and an interest in showing the indigenous cosmogony. Each trip that is made will leave a teaching
and a unique experience for travelers, and will strengthen communities, improving day by day their
infrastructure and quality of services provided.
