One of my favorite places in Peru by Santy_Claus
It really feels like a different country; it’s so different from the rest of Peru.
We went to Iquitos, which, in itself, was not a great town. But, we booked a jungle lodge stay with Muyuna, which was amazing. We saw so many animals and walked through the rainforest. I woud recommend paying the extra money to go with a company further away from Iquitos. The cheaper lodges are closer to Iquitos and you aren’t likely to see much wildlife.
Also, we loved the butterfly farm, which should be in most guide books. The monkeys there were more amazing than the butterflies. They crawl all over you and are so fun to play with!
