The best time to go is the high-water season. The blooming lasts from January until June and fresh fruits can be harvested from January until April. It's also a good chance to see monkeys and birds along the rivers because they feast upon the abundance of tropical fruit and enjoy swimming in the blackwater creeks. All these natural beauty you can explore while visiting Leticia city, municipality of the Amazonas Department - Puerto Nariño, and the Monkey Island.
