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.
