    I loved it! We went on family and play and swim in the lagoon, also my baby loved it have a restaurant with regional dishes with affordable prices. Who earned all the credits was the Dolphin has a very cute and fun training for small and I would love to be able to explore all the Zoo but couldn't do it because it is huge. It will be for the next

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.
