Iquitos Services

Tourism
iPeru has two locations in Iquitos: at Jir贸n Napo 151, office 4 (Monday-Saturday 9 a.m.-6 p.m., Sunday 9 a.m.-1 p.m. Tel: 236-144, E-mail: iperuiquitos@promperu.gob.pe); and at the airport (Tel: 260-251, URL: iperuiquitosapto@promperu.gob.pe). The tourism police is located at Jir贸n Sargento Lores 834 (Tel: 242-081), while the Pol铆cia Nacional can be found at Jir贸n Morona 126 (Tel: 233-330). For information on Reserva Nacional Pacaya-Samira, head to the national park office at Jorge Ch谩vez 930-942 (Tel: 223-555, E-mail: jgil@sernanp.gob.pe).

Money
There is a Banco de Cr茅dito in Plaza de Armas, at Jir贸n Pr贸spero 200 (Tel: 233-115/234-501). It is open Monday-Friday 9 a.m.-6 p.m. and Saturday 9 a.m.-1 p.m. Avoid exchanging money on the street with cambistas (money changers), who notoriously shortchange people. It is best to do this at a bank or local casino, where rates are better. Interbank, at Jir贸n Pr贸spero 300, can take care of this and also has an ATM. A Western Union is located at Calle Napo 388 (Tel: 255-788) if you need to send or receive money.

Keeping in Touch

It shouldn't be hard to find an Internet caf茅 while in Iquitos, since there are many throughout the city. A few are concentrated specifically around the Casa de Fierro (Iron House), which is centrally located. The average rate is $1 per hour. The city's post office is located at Avenida Arica 402.

Medical
If in need of medical assistance, head to Cl铆nica Ana Stahl at Avenida La Marina 285 (Tel: 252-535, URL: www.caas-peru.org). This private clinic is modern and comes highly recommended. There is an InkaFarma pharmacy at Jir贸n Pr贸spero 397 as well as a Boticas BTL nearby, at Jir贸n Pr贸spero 402 (corner of Jr. Morona). Boticas has 24-hour delivery; call 224-789.

Laundry

Besides the laundry services available at several of the town's hotels, Iquitos also has quite a few laundromats scattered downtown. Lavanderia Lava Magic (Jr. Putumayo 1855. Tel: 235-669) and Lava Flash (Ca. Ram贸n Castilla 288. Tel: 231-578/600-600) are both good options close to Plaza de Armas.
