Iquitios is a bit touristy, but it's a great base camp for any solo or group adventures into the Peruvian Amazon. It's only accessible by plane and boat, but the city streets are usually teeming with locals, tourists and ever-present hordes of moto-taxis. You might just want to pass through on your way to further flung Amazon destinations, but you can still find the largest traditional market in the Peruvian Amazon, local festivals and indigenous communities all within five minutes of Iquitos.

I spent two nights in the city, lot of mototaxis, very colorful. Then went to a lodge in the Amazon. It was incredible!!! Ceiba Tops Explorama is the name of the lodge

Busy, noisy, really hot but amazing! nice night market by the river, with snake dancers, great crafts. The place to go to meet a shaman or visit the herbs and witch market ang get a real taste of Amazonian life .... not always what you'd expect!
