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.

  • Despite being the center of the city, this square looks neglected and lack of cleaning, night practically is taken by sellers and motokar and pass midnight as find a surprise. Sunday dress Gala with national anthem, hoisting of the flag and parade is a spectacle

  • The plaza de armas of Iquitos could be a cozy place but has become a dirty and dangerous market full of prostitutes, addicts and beggars. The fault lies with the authorities of the 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.
