It is advisable to spend some days in one of the different lodges, built in the style of the area, that are found on the banks of tributaries in the jungle. There you may visit indigenous tribes, take walks in the jungle and appreciate the varied flora and fauna.

One of Iquitos’ main attractions is the Hanging Bridges found in areas surrounding some of the lodges. These are small walks constructed in the tops of the trees, about 100 feet high, from where you can see the flora and fauna close at hand.

Furthermore, cruise lines sailing various Peruvian jungle rivers as well as cities in Colombia and Brazil, anchor in Iquitos. These vessels have all comforts such as air-conditioned rooms, private baths, restaurant, open decks, etc.
