Casa do Xingu - dorms per 5 USD, away from noisy downtown (20 mints walking) next to Brazilian piece of jungle, lake, trekkings, indigenous traditions, less known spots. When booking, please bear in mind that Airbnb will charge you 10K, for this reason you end up paying two nights or equivalent to two people. Just ask for details.

The space

Our 'off the beaten track' dorms are located in a neighborhood next the Brasizilian jungle, this allows travellers get a real perception of how we live in this paradise and also getting lost in the magical forest without paying for it!

The most remarkable thing about our place that is close to nature, five minutes walking and you're already swimming in a lake, walking in the forest or making fire in our 'finca' which is located ten minutes walking from home. So basically you don't have to go on expensive tours to enjoy nature that is just next to your sleeping place.

Guest access

Nice spaces to hang you hammock and have a nice nap listening to birds, lizards and maybe a monkey passing by.

Interaction with guests

I'm at home most of the time, so please let me know if you're looking for something you cannot find on your own, I'll be happy to assist you.

we're running a 'home lonely planet' version for traveler who don't wanna spend money on silly tours around the jungle

Other things to note

We live next to a piece of jungle in the brazilian border then you can actually go sightseeing without paying a single penny!

Juan was really welcoming and communication is also very easy with him. He helped me plan my stay since he knows a lot from the people there, the tours and the possibilities around Leticia and Amazona. Big hug from Portugal Juan :)

Wow. I could write a book about how magical this space is. Logistics : Super easy to get to and from the center by walking, moto, or a tuk tuk. By far the cleanest place I've stayed in Colombia. Great outdoor kitchen and shower. Welcoming and inviting space and family! Juan is amazing. Very open to sharing recommendations and stories. His family is beautiful and very helpful, too. I look forward to returning. I'm not sure if I just got lucky, but I have a feeling there are always amazing people here. We shared communal meals and went on excursions together. There is also lots of space to be alone (heck, a whole jungle!). I highly recommend staying here.
