Laguna Azul, Tarapoto
(4.6/5 based on 750+ reviews on the web)
A popular spot among locals, Laguna Azul is known for good swimming, boating, and fishing. Getting to there can be a bit tricky as a tourist, as you need both a car and a ferry to cross the Rio Huallaga, but organized tours will take you for the day. Overnight excursions are also available, where you can opt to camp or stay in comfortable bungalows. Nearby, you’ll also find waterfalls and thermal springs to explore. Locals refer to this spot as Laguna de Sauce as well, so try both names when researching tour company options. For Laguna Azul and beyond, use our Tarapoto trip itinerary builder to get the most from your Tarapoto vacation.

  • Nice experience, show you the mermaid Chair. Take you to an island where there are sunbeds and a center to buy liquor. There are many trees of mamey (no problem if you eat some of the tree)
