Inside the Amazonian flat-lands in Caqueta a few indigenous groups still survive, with their own culture and traditions, among them: the Huitotos, Tamas, Koreguajes, Karijonas, Andaquies and the Macaguales. Some other groups dissapeared during the spanish colonization and later on during the rubber boom season.
The department of Caqueta is divided into 16 municipalities, the most recognized being: its capital city Florencia, San Vicente del Caguan, Morelia, Puerto Rico, Valparaiso, Colombia y Cartagena del Chaira, most of which are located near the Andes mountain range.
Caqueta’s economy is based mostly in agriculture and livestock farming.
Caqueta has a great ecotouristic potential, which sadly cannot be fully enjoyed until peace and security are secured in the territory.
