I have always dreamed of traveling to the Colombian Amazon. I imagined what the river would be like, so big you couldn’t see the other side.

But what I found beyond the river was what amazed me the most; in the jungle, there exists a completely different world with abundant nature and the cultural heritage and ancestral legacy of the indigenous communities that inhabit it.

The Amazon covers one-third of Colombia’s national territory. It is a completely isolated region surrounded by enormous rivers and intersected by hundreds of smaller ones that flood the forest during the rainy season.
