The nice town Iquitos is buzzing all the time from the mosquitos that are running on the streets.
There are nice houses to look at and some museums.
There is also a zoo outside the town.
The town has declined after the rich era of caouchouk.
The town has water connexion by boat with the Atlantic sea.
A must see is the floating town of Belen, just outside Iquitos.

    FANTASTIC page: I like canoe trip in floating town of Belen, trip to more civilized jungle with those amazing trees (although I wander less civilized) and this Eiffel house. Usuful tips - thanks :-)
