Capital of the Peruvian Amazon
The largest city in the Peruvian Amazon and the world's largest metropolis unreachable by road, Iquitos represents a major starting point for river and rainforest adventures. Naturally, the unadulterated rainforest landscape just outside this city of 440,000 remains the top attraction in Iquitos. You can choose from a wide range of excursions, whether day trips from the city, or longer expeditions leading onward to other Amazonian settlements. Still, the city itself has plenty to offer: a diverse Iquitos itinerary can include architectural highlights, atmospheric eateries serving Amazonian culinary staples, and the bustling downtown area of bars, clubs, and cultural venues. In the build up to your vacation in Iquitos, plan trip itinerary minutiae using the visitor reviews, staff write-ups, and custom search fields on our Peru attractions planning app.
