Zoo / Aquarium
Walk through the toothy grin of a giant lizard that lived more than 10 million years ago into Parque Natural de Pucallpa, a zoo with more than 400 species of animals. The park acts as both a recreational center, a museum, and zoo--lined with trees, swampy areas, and criss-crossed by trails. See monkeys, alligators, jaguars, anteaters, deer, and toucans, and then browse the museum's collection of river fossils. Don't forget bug spray, as the dense forest jungle also hosts many mosquitos.

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.
