How to get to Iquitos
The best way to get to Iquitos is by flying in. In fact, this bustling former trade capital is so tucked into the jungle that it is the largest city in the world inaccessible by roads.
There are flights that depart Lima every few hours from early in the morning through the evening.
DON'T take a boat. Although it is possible, it is not recommended. Since Iquitos is the departure point for our cruises, you will have plenty of time on the rivers anyway, without the added planning of how to get there.
