Fish in the murky Amazon river
Traditional Piranha fishing in an activity you must try when traveling to Leticia and the Amazon.
Palmari offers this activity to its guests. Your guide invites you to board on his thin wooden canoe, called “Pique Pique,” to catch piranha thanks to a handcrafted technic.
Firstly, you have to look for a spot where the water is quite shallow as there are more fishes. Afterward, you tie the boat to a branch and get your bamboo stick with nylon and a hook ready. You stick a piece of raw chicken to the catch, and then you drop it in the water in front of you.
It’s quite a playful moment. 🙂
If you’re a fishing fan, then you must travel to the Amazon when the river level is low. Indeed, when the water slowly recedes, various lagoons filled with fishes appear in the jungle.
In Palmari, your guide can lead to places where nobody is aware of, but you must deserve it. You will have to walk through the jungle with your canoe! This experience is physically demanding, and you will sweat a lot. Keep smiling and think of the giant fishes you can get and stories to tell.
Add this activity to your Colombia itinerary if you’re curious to know how local communities fish in the Amazon. Beginners and aficionados fishers will love that experience!
