  • One of the more traditional tourist sites in the city of Iquitos, was originally intended to get to know the way of life of a native of the Amazon, but with the passing of time years has become a sale with tour included more than a tourist theme I think it is a bad copy of other tourist attractions. The prices are high if they include the cost of the tour.

  • Tourist attraction in our Eastern jungle, by boat from the port of Buenavista in Nanay about 25-30 minutes you will reach the town of Boras, where the boss Bora welcomes you and take you to a kind of large hut where tell you their story they make songs and invite you to participate in a dance. In the end come to sell their products, suggestion buy something small if you want to spend and what you like if your budget allows you, this helps them, they live off tourism, therefore you may seem too insistent, yet they understand when No is categorical. It is an interesting experience to learn how they live and where they come from.

Where to stay in Iquitos

The scenic, remote city of Iquitos has long been established as a route into the Amazon, so you'll find a good range of accommodations here. Most of the luxury options lie between Calle Samanez Ocampo and the river, with established colonial-era buildings housing some of the most characterful lodgings. Around the town's primarily residential areas, find simple guesthouses on modest-looking side streets, along with rental apartments ideal for longer stays. Scenic lodges and campgrounds on the edge of town give you the feeling of isolation and wilderness that so many come to the Amazon to find.
