Leticia Amazonas, is the capital of the largest state in Colombia and the gateway to the Amazon region. A city, that for the last 5 years has been growing potentially and transforming itself into the #1 tourist destination in the Amazon region but since March 2020 everything went dark with the pandemic generated by the COVID-19 virus.
Year after year, the number of visitors that came to know this beautiful region was doubling, the foreign market was in full growth and new hotels and attractions were opening but on March 21, 2020 the airport closed its doors due to the events that were happening worldwide.
We were the first capital to collapse in Colombia
In April, already with the virus coming from Brazil, we collapsed the departmental health system and hit the city quite hard. We had a curfew, restrictions to leave, no air connection and suspended tourism for 5 months.
It was a very hard time that remained for the history of our region but the most important thing was that in all the darkness we could see the light, people began to take care of themselves and take their natural remedies. The hospitals began to be empty with covid cases and the people have now returned to normalcy under personal self-care.
Leticia Amazonas Tourism today and in pandemic in the Amazon
Currently, the different operators are already working. We already have daily flights with the companies Avianca and Latam. The tour operator Amazonascolombia.com and Amazonas Jungle Tours since November 2020 is exclusively offering customized 3 or 4 day tours from Leticia Amazonas.
What tourist attraction is closed by Covid in Leticia Amazonas.
Already all the tourist attractions are mostly open to the public except the island of the monkeys in which still does not have a reopening date. Due to what happened in Denmark with the mutation of the virus in the minks, the future of the monkey island is not known until the company Decameron gives a special release.
