Puerto Narino


Puerto Narino is the second municipality of the Amazonas department of Colombia, located on the shore of the Amazon River.

It has about 6,000 residents, most of them are indigenous and its specificity is that it is entirely pedestrian, no car or motorcycle being allowed, as an experiment in an ecological community. The traffic with the smaller communities along the river, and with Leticia, the only other Colombian municipality in the region, takes place by motorboats.

Its name comes from a famous Colombian general, Antonio Narino, who took an active part in the independence war against the Spanish occupiers.
