Peru Things to Do: 659 reviews and 852 photos
Iquitos is the largest city on earth that has no communication by road. It is located in the heart of the Peruvian jungle, on the shore of the Amazon river, north of Peru.
It is a tropical laid back town with many many moto-taxis, few cars (as there are no roads) and beautiful colonial houses with pleasant colours and marvellous tiles.
In its best times it was the capital of the rubber empire in the Amazon, big fortunes grew here, and big fortunes vanished. Walking along the streets you can see this town lived better times.
This is a good basecamp to join a jungle trip or spend a few days in a jungle lodge, or even just to sail up or down the Amazon river.
