Cuisine

Grilled Gamitana

Grilled Gamitana

Leticia's food has an ancient history that dates back to the indigenous cultures that lived in the region for many years. Over time, it has been influenced by European and Afro-descendant culture but remains an expression of the rich cultural heritage of the Amazon and a tribute to nature.

Grilled Gamitana is a delicious Amazonian specialty that consists of grilling fish seasoned with salt and pepper. It is accompanied by fried smashed plantains and a refreshing salad of lettuce, tomato, onion, and parsley, which add vibrant colors to the dish. A tasty and colorful option to enjoy in the Amazon!

There is also tikuna fish, a traditional recipe from the Tikuna ethnic group, an indigenous community in the Amazon. It consists of fresh river fish marinated with spices and cooked in bijao leaves. It is a delight full of native flavors.
