Tres Fronteras

Going in a small boat from Peru to Brazil, February 2010

From Wikipedia:
Tres Fronteras (Portuguese: Três Fronteiras) is the Spanish name for an area of the Amazon Rainforest, noted for its natural beauty, where Brazil, Peru, and Colombia meet. Cities near here are Tabatinga, Leticia, and Santa Rosa de Yavari, this latter on an island in front of Leticia.

A very interesting stop on our trip down the Amazon in this three cities and three countries all so close together. But try to imagine how hot and humid it is.

By ship we came in two days from Iquitos (Peru), spend one night in the very quite Santa Rosa (no cars), spend three more nights in Tabatinga. To Leticia we drove by mini bus to change money.

Our trip on the Amazon continued from Tabatinga to Manaus (Brazil). Again two days on a local ship. All easy to organize while we were there.

I posted some photos from this leg before.
