Hostels in Leticia are usually located in the town center, within walking distance to many shops, restaurants, and cafes, and only a few minutes' walking distance to the docks, which are located on the Amazon River. Water taxis and long distance boats operate from the docks, and can take passengers to nearby villages, or even further down the Amazon, as far as Iquitos in Peru, or Manus in Brazil. If crossing into either Brazil or Peru from Colombia, you'll need to get an exit stamp from the immigration office at the airport before departing on the boat.

The price is usually determined by on how many people are on the tour -- the more people, the less the overall price.
