Un gran lugar para descubrir el Amazonas. El personal es genial, estuvimos muy seguros. La comida es buena. Reservamos el tour de 3 días , y nos dio tiempo a hacer muchas actividades, incluyendo algunas nocturnas que son opcionales.

The staff is wonderful, a unique experience in the middle of the Amazon, all care to the smallest detail; excursions (the guides are local), food (the best we have eaten on any trip to Peru), comfortable stay, good communication...HIGHLY RECOMMENDED IF YOU ARE TRAVELING TO IQUITOS

Questions & Answers

What if my flight arrives later than 9:30 a.m.?
If you cannot take the 9:30 a.m. boat, there is another departure available for the flight that arrives from Cusco at 10:40 a.m. After this time, it is possible to take the boat until 3:00 p.m. but it has an extra cost.

When is the best time to visit the Iquitos Jungle?
Any time of the year is good to enjoy the Iquitos Amazon, but it is important to know that between the months of December to May is the rainy season.

What is the weather like?
The Amazon is hot and humid, and the climate is quite variable.

Are the cabins prepared to repel mosquitoes?
Yes, all rooms have mosquito nets. In addition, we recommend bringing a good tropical repellent and using it several times a day.
