  • Do not you learn a lot from their culture but if entertaining dances, sold interesting things (I bought a stuffed Tiger's head) are a little stubborn but must know how to say 'no' with kindness

  • Nice place, in truth the landscape is very beautiful, but boras were very ostigantes at the time of offer and sell souvenirs, that was really uncomfortable. If will take into account so they don't ruin your experience, since the place is beautiful.

  • Nice, experience, recommend at least once. Hence everything becomes very technical, these people are already used to receive and treat tourists, notes that his biggest concern, that give you an experience, most is sell their handicrafts, i.e., it is what you earn. I recommend it, for, once.

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.
