Full Day Iquitos Tour
Full Day Iquitos City tour: Floating market of Belen, Quistococha, and Manatees. Cost is $85 USD per person, includes all transportation, entry fees, meals and gear.
Pick up from our guesthouse or your hostel at 8:00 am from where we depart towards Belen. The floating city of Belen, is flooded for the greater part of the year. Homes are either built on balsa wood, or stilts (locally known as palafitos).This is where you can literally appreciate river life.During the flooding months, the waters enter Belen forcing all transport and commerce (food, drink, and medicine) to be conducted on canoes among its inhabitants.These months are best for exploring the streets of Belen on a canoe, where you can see its river streets, floating schools, homes, churches, stores, bars and even floating night clubs (January to June). During the dry season, the streets are taken over by the street vendors of Belen.
