Jungle

Iquitos

Iquitos - Peru´s tropical gateway city and door to the mysterious Amazon - pulses with the raw anergy of a frontier autpost. Flying in, you will be overwhelmed as the seemingly limitless expanse of unexplored green unrolls beneath you.About 2 kilometers wide near the city, is the powerful Amazon river. You can appreciate the contrast between modern naval yard and petroleum installations with native settlements.To see the city itseft, you may hire a motorcycle rickshaw "moto taxi" for a tour. Admire the richly tiled facades of many of the buildings, reminders of the era of the rubber boom.

The iron building on the corner of the Main Square is said to have been designed by the french architect Eiffel.The jungle here is a benevolent wilderness that really begins about 50 kms. Downriver from Iquitos. Countless species of plant and animal life are still unclassified by modern science.

The many Indian tribes of the Amazon region are perfectly adapted to their environment, successfully leading their lives long before "civilization" came to the area. Their folklore is some of the world's most fascinating and their folk medicine aside from mystic and fascinating has also been said to be one of the most effective.
