Iquitos

The jungle city

Iquitos boardwalk

Iquito is a jumping off place for an endless list of Amazon activities. If you have time, you should definitely do a multi-day trip on the Amazon River and stay in an eco-lodge. There are dozens to choose from, so do your research to find one that truly lives up to the expectations of an eco-lodge in terms of wildlife protection, supporting local communities and waste management.

Amazon Rescue Center

Though I don’t recommend individual tour operators, I do recommend visiting the Amazon Rescue Center. This is an effective non-profit that is making a real difference in rescuing wildlife. If you have time, sign up to volunteer at the center!

Isla de los Monos

Another great non-profit is Isla de los Monos, which is about 30 k from Iquitos. Visiting and donating will go a long way in helping their efforts to preserve wildlife in the Amazon.
