The people at Omshanty were really helpful and they set up an awesome trip for us, we were always busy but it was not overwhelming, and they provided everything necessary. our trip was a while ago so I don't remember all of the details but the documents they email before your trip are very informative and you'll be just fine...

The hut is spacious, comfortable and clean. My husband and 3 teenagers shared the bathroom and the kitchen with another backpacker who was staying in a hummock. At first it was strange having to share the space, but soon enough, this was a great experience, we had made a new friend. Omshanty is in the outskirts of Leticia and you... More

The bungalow is great, the toilet, the kitchen and the room itself is very clean. I woke up with the amazing sounds of nature. Easy to get there, to get food and drinks. I just took the night hike... it was CRAP, it was just a walk on Hostel's backyard, with a guide that barerly spoke to me (I do... More

We booked this place to stay for just 2 nights after arriving from Bogota. We ended up staying almost a week. We just loved getting the bus back and forth to town, the noises of the jungle while still having a bathroom and kitchen in the same hut. We made some great friends here and even travelled to Brazil with... More

The owner runs a great little property outside of Leticia in the actual jungle. As long as you don't mind some bugs, hot weather, and the crow of a rooster every morning, this place is what you want if seeking a jungle stay. This is not a hotel, and the amenities are lacking, but if you're wanting to stay in... More

Let start off by saying, I've been to Leticia several times. Two nights were spent here at Omshanty. It is located out of town. The grounds are just beautiful. Our cabin was very comfortable, bedding was nice, small kitchen and efficient bathroom. Take a flash light for arriving back at your cabin at night. WONDRFUL breakfast food is located directly...

We stayed here for few nights and wished it was for longer. The cabañas has everything you need. Is right in the jungle, so is the perfect introduction to the Amazon. 100% recommended. We'll come back for sure.

What a fantastic place this is! If you want to spend a night in the jungle you can get your first feel here, the sounds at night are unforgettable. The cabanas are away one from another and surrounded by beautiful nature. There are no windows (just a net instead) which makes you feel like being outside in the jungle all... More

We stayed in a bungalow at Omshanty for two nights. The place is about 11km out of Leticia - in what can be considered the Amazonic countryside. Enrique, the very nice and friendly owner, has really put his heart into it and his little "jungle village" is just awesome and really beautiful. A river where you can swim is located... More

Omshanty is a fantastic introduction to the Amazon and to Leticia. Settled 11km from Leticia, you must take either the local bus that says KM11, a motorcycle taxi, or a Tuk Tuk or Official Taxi. Tip: The local buses only pick up school students between 11AM and 1PM. They will not pick you up in that time. Omshanty welcomes you... More
