Landmark Tourist Spot
Spend some time at Plaza de Armas, a modern square in a lush vegetation setting with a striking obelisk at its center. Pay special attention to the plaza's impressive gleaming white fountain and monument, erected in tribute to Pucallpa's founders and pioneers. This ornamental fountain features granite sculptures, a row of flags, and three pools all representing the customs of the region's native people. Pay a visit to the Pucallpa Cathedral, located opposite the square, to supplement your time at the plaza. Plaza de Armas is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our world travel planner, Pucallpa Edition.

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.
