La Chorrera is a town and municipality in the southern Colombian Department of Amazonas. The population is largely engaged in agricultural production, hunting, fishing, and banana and cassava growing. The municipality was once a notable site for rubber production, exploited by the Peruvian Julio César Arana brothers at the turn of the 20th century, north of the Putumayo River.
