Plaza de Armas de Iquitos, Iquitos

3.1
Stroll through Plaza de Armas de Iquitos, an attractive urban park and public garden. Relax under the palm trees surrounding the central monument, a tribute to the Peruvians who lost their lives during the Pacific War (1879-83). In the eastern portion of the square, you'll find a fountain with timed jets of water, decorated with colored lights. Plan my trip to Iquitos with suggested itineraries provided by Inspirock.

  • Iquitos is one of the places that ultimately I must return, has a charm and a unique magic, knew that there is a House of iron?

  • It is a focal point and the avenues converge more central and 2 blocks from the boulevard, the walk is worth by city

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.
