Crimson Land

Located on the banks of the Ucayali River, the city of Pucallpa offers attractions both manmade and natural across a main urban area, characterized for years by its remoteness and lack of modern development. Established by Franciscan missionaries in the 1840s, Pucallpa remained cut off from the rest of Peru by the Amazon rainforest and the Andes, until a highway was built to connect it with other major urban areas. The relative lateness of its development makes up part of the charms and character of a tour of Pucallpa, which includes untarnished rainforest at the edge of town, a rustic riverfront area, as well as modern architectural highlights that celebrate the end of the city's isolation.

Where to stay in Pucallpa

After centuries spent isolated from the country's main urban areas, the highway and airport brought a wave of development to Pucallpa, including a good range of accommodations. Hotels both simple and luxurious scatter throughout the main urban area; generally larger and more popular options line the main boulevards, while simpler, smaller hotels are tucked away in the city's side streets. The densest area of places to stay lies between Av. Centenario/Saenz Pena and the Ucayali River. In this neighborhood, many of the city's grandest hotels sit alongside more humble lodgings, with a number of rooms offering good views of the river.
