General Tips

I won't make this intro page complicated.
Please read the tips below if you are looking to go to Iquitos.

We flew in from Lima which comes to Iquitos in the early. The flights are reversed back to Lima in the late afternoon. Went up to the jungle lodge 4 hours up the Amazon.

Going on an Amazon lodge is worth it. Expensive yes, but you get the whole jungle safari experience.
