We were very excited to stay at Omshanty, judging on all the positive feedback. We weren't expecting a five star hotel, and were actually excited by getting an experience which seemed "off-the-beaten path". Unfortunately, just because a place is off the beaten path is no excuse for not taking care of the establishment. The cabins themselves are a decent size,... More

We spent one night in a cabin and wish that we could have stayed longer. Our cabin had 3 beds, a private bath, a well equipped kitchen (with perfectly sharpened knife!) and a nice porch with hammock. On the property there is also a shared fridge, grilling area and hammock grotto. The grounds are quite beautiful with loads of greenery... More

I really liked Omshanty and I would love go back someday. It's a busride (maybe 20 min..? don't remember) away from the town Leticia and it is very easy to take it to town since it stops right outside the hostel. It's like sleeping in the jungle but in a comfortable, easy-going, way. It's simple but you have all you... More

My boyfriend and I were looking for adventures and that was exactly what we got. This place was really beautiful, quiet and unique, it is what you see in the pictures and you get really close with nature and with the locals. Also we took a one day and one night excursion with Cornelio and his family and we loved... More

Lo siento, I have no Spanish. I visited Omshanty as a traveler from South Africa and although we spent a lot of time in Colombia and Brazil it is the time spent in Omshanty we love the most. Do not go there if you want luxury, but why would you? Kike is the best host, but does not ever impose.

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.

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
