Laguna Azul, Tarapoto

(4.5/5 based on 800+ 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.
