Getting Around

The main mode of public transportation is moto-taxis, with folks on motorcycles who zip around town with an extra helmet. The base rate is COP$2500. Frequent colectivos (COP$2500 to COP$7000) link Leticia with Tabatinga and the 'Kilometer' villages north of Leticia's airport. There are minibuses to Tabatinga and colectivos to Leticia airport.

Standard taxis are pricier than in the rest of Colombia; a short ride from the airport to town costs around COP$10,000, to Tabatinga's airport COP$15,000 and to the Porto Bras in Tabatinga COP$10,000.
