Iquitos

The jungle city of Iquitos, the capital of Loreto Province, is the most populated city in the world unreachable by road and one of Peru's most fascinating cities. Although commonly viewed by visitors as a mere stopover on the way to Amazonian lodges and reserves, the city itself is worth a visit. Located on the banks of a mile-wide Amazon River, Iquitos features a floating market, various floating restaurants, some interesting architecture and several crafts markets. One of its biggest draws, of course, is its proximity to some of the Peruvian Amazon Basin's highlights, such as Lake Quistococha and a few protected nature reserves, including one of the largest protected areas in Peru, Reserva Nacional Pacaya-Samiria.
