  • I absolutely fell in love with Tarapoto's jungle; just beautiful. The walk to the waterfall was for around 1 hour and sometimes it was a little steeper/ a little slippery but all in all it was nothing...  more »
  • The visit of Pucayaquillo is the activity that I liked most. At the entrance you are cordially received by members of a community that is in charge of the maintenance and conservation of the cataract. The beautiful walk of approximately 45 minutes is of moderate intensity. The walk worthwhile widely, is a beautiful experience contact with nature in addition to the enjoyment of the great landscape that opens way to moves towards the waterfall. The waterfall is very cute in a green and wild natural environment, the morning we were were unique visitors, were very special moments that will remain engraved on the memory. It is necessary to visit repellent, sunscreen, slippers, water and much attitude to enjoy the activity. We were lucky to have as a guide to Wilder, it was very friendly and patient with a member of our group which was necessary to support it on the rise because of his age. It has been a great experience, took her in the memory of the happy moments!

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.
