Fast boat from Iquitos to Leticia

Hi,

I have heard you can get a fast boat from Iquitos up the Amazon to Leticia in Colombia. I am hoping to be in Iquitos on January 3 to get a boat the next morning.

My questions are:

- Do fast boats run every day?

- Which companies operate this trip?

- Can I book a ticket when I arrive the day before? Is this enough time?

Thanks for you help

Hi everyone.

I have just been through Iquitos and found it very easy to book the fast boat.

There are two companies that operate the service - Golfinho and Transtur - and their offices are only a few metres from each other. They run on alternate days. I took the Golfinho which runs on Wed, Fri and Sun.

I was able to book in Iquitos the day before at their office. They are located at 378 Raymondi.

Hi there.

How long did the journey take, and how much did it cost?

Regards
