    Nice climate of the city, very quiet all day and ideal for walking, care must be taken always with friends from the outside but otherwise all very nice.

    Place without surprise. Quite noisy due to the inundations of mototaxis on the 4 corners of the square. No reason really to linger.

    Iquitos is not known for being a very clean and beautiful city. The plaza de armas is quite modern, lacks the charm of other squares of colonial weapons

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.
