    For the payment of the ticket, futuristic boat, each salon describes the history of Iquitos and appreciate as a ship of that time. In addition, is included a tour of the River, I recommend tomes of the afternoon, the sunsets are inpagables, beautiful landscapes, the crooked sky, great show. You must also take the Morey House, is included, Hotel which has been rebuilt and maintains the splendor of the mansions of the heyday of the rubber era.

    Boat of 1906 in very good condition. Conditioning and documented Museum allows on the one hand, through almost all of the ship and know their environments (at three levels) and moreover learn more about River maritime history of the Peru. The machine room but does not work, is very well decorated and gives the impression that were in use. Other environments have instruments and the period furniture. Documentation allows you to know the history of the "boom" of rubber and its economic and social implications in the Peru (in English and Spanish). Many photos accompany the explanations and it is possible to see original books with drawings, maps, and period details. Other environment explains the process of extraction of rubber and its use at the time. The visit is not guided. The ticket costs 10 soles, and includes a visit guided the House Morey and a barge about 25 minutes ride.

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.
