  • Museum is quite poor, not interactive at all. They do have some interesting items and you can definitely get some of interesting facts about indigenous people of Amazon.  more »

  • Beautiful Museum whose wealth took me by surprise. We can identify the various ethnic groups and their customs. One can easily spend two hours. It's worth!

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.
