  • I live in Peru and this is was my second trip to Iquitos was a great Tour, it was exciting to know animals that have this beautiful place.

  • We returned after several years and very sorry we see that it is still the same site neglected before, the only thing salvageable ea that there are more offers gastronomic although very austere and country style. The entrance is very comfortable with discount for schoolchildren and elderly. Very close to the airport on the road to Nauta

  • First time that I am going to Iquitos and the first thing they told me is to go to Quistococha! You can see various animals of the jungle, people can bathe in the river which is like a small beach and there is also an area of food where you can taste topical dishes from the jungle, only tngo an observation that the restaurant was a little l EnTA. They should work more on that.

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.
