Tapiche Reserve, Iquitos

4.9
#5 of 15 in Wildlife in Iquitos
For a truly secluded Amazonian experience, look no further than Tapiche Reserve, a privately owned and operated conservation area accessible only by waterway. Wildlife here includes endangered species such as jaguars, giant armadillo, harpy eagles, and the Brazilian tapir, so you'll spot all kinds of creatures along the trail through lush, thick jungle. The 1,540 hectare (3,805 acre) reserve exists on a strictly no-hunting and conservation-led principle; ticket sales go toward the efforts at preserving this Amazonian paradise. Due to its distance from the nearest town, the attraction doesn't draw crowds--making it the perfect place if you're seeking something remote.

  • I loved it! From feed the crocodiles, lizards and Paiche (huge), see the carnivorous plants which are called Royal victory, and relax in the hammocks. Very good place to be in contact with nature.

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.
