Peruvian Amazon Travel Itineraries and Places to Stay

Puerto Maldonado is the gateway to many different jungle trips. It is located deep in the Amazon Jungle just 55 km west of the confluence of the Tambopata and Madre de Dios Rivers.

Unlike many destinations, it was founded relatively recently – in the beginning of the twentieth century – by explorers on a nearby river expedition.

Inkaterra Reserva Amazónica - Peruvian Amazon

Often called the Capital of the Peruvian Amazon, Iquitos is both the largest city in the Peruvian rainforest and a melting pot for different foods, cultures, and historical landmarks. Located on the banks of the Amazon river, it offers a wide range of natural attractions as well.

Hacienda Concepcion - Peruvian Amazon

Iquitos was founded in the mid-18th century as a Jesuit mission to the indigenous Yameo people. The rubber boom of the early 20th century brought thousands of international immigrants as well as industry and money to the town – making way for the now culturally diverse, large city. European influences are still seen mingled with local culture today.
