  • Forced passage in Iquitos. You can take a motocar from the center of Iquitos and you should charge them between 12 soles and 15 soles (no more), the place is located approximately 30 minutes from the city center. When the cost of the national entrance comes there are 10 soles and foreigners 20 soles and you go to a reception where they make you watch some videos of the beautiful work they do, until a group of approximately 7 people are formed and you can start the tour with the guide. On the tour you can see between parrots, monkeys, turtles, sloths, alligators, otters, tigrillos, paiches and finally the beautiful manaties and with it the beautiful work they have been doing. If you travel to Iquitos do not hesitate to stop by CREA.
