    For someone that is capital, and have these changes like a ferry, is the most great that it can exist, even though it is rustic what you can give to know a totally different experience, for the Blue Lagoon, is basic to pass through here.

    Willow Lake or lagoon blue as it is also known, is a few hours from the city of Tarapoto; and it represents one of the obligatory attractions. To reach the Lake must be crossing the Huallaga River through rafts equipped for transportation of vehicles. La laguna is clean and there are several restaurants, rustic and attractive to go ride horseback riding, Jet skiing, ride on boat, etc and even being able to bathe in the same lagoon. 100% recommended to spend a pleasant day in the company of the family!.

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.
