The largest metropolis in the Peruvian Amazon, Iquitos is the ninth-most populous city of Peru. Located in the Great Plains of the Amazon Basin, fed by the Amazon, Nanay, and Itaya rivers, it is the largest city in the world that cannot be reached by road – it is accessible only by river and air.
Those who come to Peru to experience ayahuasca – which is completely legal here (just like san pedro and other strong substances), unlike cannabis – make their way to Iquitos. Of course, it’s possible to experience ayahuasca also in Pucallpa, Tarapoto etc. (actually even in the mountains in Cuzco), but Iquitos is simply the top destination for this purpose.
The legendary part of the Amazonian jungle: a city surrounded by the Amazon and its arms and the rain forest. No other way to reach it but on a boat or in a plane. Mentioned in many books, movies and documentaries, including the bible of the New Age, Celestial Prophecy, and Zac Efron´s Down to Earth, this place certainly is a must see in Peru.
