  • The place and the idea itself is good... but it disgusts me that animals are cage totally dirty, feels neglected and even sick, maybe the artificial Beach which is clean.

  • The Zoo is perfect, many species of wild animals and apparently well taken care of. Next to the zoo has an artificial Beach very nice.

  • The place is large, can appreciate animals, especially if you're going between 12:00 am and 1:30 pm can you watch the dolphin show, it's great, I went weekday there was almost no people, of echo that involved the beach which has the estuvi Zoo inside It was almost empty, almost a private beach. Take enough repellent and water. It was great

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.
