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.

  • Depending on the season in which you discover it, I can say that if what you want is to disconnect, in this place you will get. I had the opportunity to visit him in Holy week and if that I get disconnected. To visit this place to hire the services of Tingana Tours and my guide John demonstrated a full understanding of the place, as well as to be aware at all times that you are safe and fun to the Max in your travel... even in photo shoot experience! A destination you should not miss.
