The zoological garden is located a bit far from the Iquitos centre. You have better take a mosquito there. Tell the driver to wait for you, you will not find any other taxis out there.
The zoo have all the 'cat' animals that live in Peru and many other animals too.
In the zoo there is also a small lake and a 'beach' where you can take a swim if you like.
