  • one of the meeting points most used split tourists, travellers or lovebirds lovers is just opposite the Cathedral of Iquitos. When the evening comes the combination of colors of the day, the Sun going down and artificial lights give a very unique charm to this place that seems magical. I remember that once I cite in that same place with a young woman I met in this beautiful city.

  • Nice, simple and pretty well located and clean, looks cute from the outside and inside is understated, quiet, very appropriate to go to pray and connect with the Lord.

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.
