Discover the Amazon Rainforest: Adventures in Iquitos

Iquitos: The Gateway to the Amazon

Iquitos, located in the heart of the Peruvian Amazon, is the largest city in the world inaccessible by road. Its unique location makes it the perfect starting point for exploring the lush Amazon rainforest. Upon arrival in Iquitos, you will enter a vibrant and colorful city, where urban life blends harmoniously with the surrounding nature.

Jungle Tours

From Iquitos, you can embark on exciting excursions that will take you deep into the jungle. Tour options are varied and can last from one day to several weeks. On these tours, you will be able to observe the incredible biodiversity of the region, including monkeys, sloths, colorful tropical birds, and the famous pink river dolphin.

Many tours offer the possibility of staying on boutique cruises, which are accommodations in the middle of the jungle. These boutique cruises provide an immersive experience, allowing you to enjoy the tranquility and sounds of nature while relaxing in comfortable facilities.

Tips for Your Amazon Adventure

  • Light Clothing and Insect Repellent: The Amazon rainforest is humid and hot, so it is advisable to wear light, light-colored, long-sleeved clothing to protect yourself from insects. Don't forget to bring a good insect repellent to keep mosquitoes at bay.

  • Local Guides: It is always best to explore the jungle with experienced local guides. They know the trails, the flora and fauna, and can guarantee a safe and educational experience.
