Iquitos, Gateway To The Amazon

Iquitos is the jumping-off point for several attractions in Peru’s northern Amazon. The city is also home to one of the largest butterfly sanctuaries in South America, the Pilpintuwasi Butterfly Farm and Amazon Animal Orphanage; and La Isla de Los Monos, or Monkey Island, which is a 490acre ((200-hectare) reserve where monkeys roam freely. And the indigenous settlement of the Yaguas is a short boat ride away from the city center.
