This place is so beautiful. We did a tour with Amazon Experience and they took us to visit this place. We enjoyed to play with the mokeys. You can see many types of monkeys in this beautiful place. We recommend to visit this place.

Just an overall great experience, the best time to visit this place is early in the day because you will see a lot more monkeys out and about. One of the top things to do while staying in Iquitos.
