Tarapoto

City of Palms

As a busy commercial hub of northern Peru, Tarapoto straddles the foothills of the Andes and a high jungle plateau characterized by lush cloud forests. Providing diverse nightlife options, Tarapoto holidays typically appeal to young adventurers interested in getting off the beaten path and discovering the less-traveled side of Peru. The surrounding area, with its pristine natural landscapes, draws adrenaline seekers who often take a trip to Tarapoto to river raft and hike the tropical Andean slopes. A convenient base for plunging deeper into the wild Peruvian Amazon, the city offers plenty of reliable places to eat and sleep, as well as easy connections to Lima.

Where to stay in Tarapoto

Hostels near the main square serve as the most affordable option in Tarapoto, offering simple rooms a short walk away from most in-town attractions and activities. You don't have to go far out of Tarapoto to sleep in a real Peruvian jungle, though--numerous eco-lodges sit on or near the banks of the Shilcayo River just a short drive from the city center.
