Iquitos and the Amazon

About Iquitos and the Amazon

Only accessible by river and air and surrounded in every direction by lush green forest, the city of Iquitos is everything you could imagine of a jungle town – magnificent tropical scenery, colourful shantytowns and vibrant native Indian markets. With an ever-growing tourist infrastructure of friendly cafes, lively nightclubs, exceptional seafood eateries, interesting art galleries and exciting carnivals, Iquitos is definitely worth more than a fleeting visit. And for those seeking a spiritual experience, Iquitos provides the opportunity to meet local shamans and undergo a religious psycho-healing session with the potent hallucinogenic ayahuasca vine.
