How to get there ?




Iquitos is the main city of the Peruvian amazon forest. It can be reached by direct short flight from Lima. 

From Iquitos to Libertad (normal route - 4 hours)
From Iquitos, your transfer will be coordinated by your hosts ! Your guide will pick you up at the airport, or at your hotel, and accompany you by road to Nauta (2 hours south-west). From Nauta, the guide will arrange river transport on a canoe type motorboat. From there, 1 to 2 hours to Libertad. See the mini map below to get a clear view on this route. This route is done in daylight, for practical reasons, but also as it is a very enjoyable journey and a great introduction to the surrounding environment. For your flight plan, it is better to arrive on a morning flight, so that you can be in daylight conditions all the way to Libertad.

Alternative route 1 (1 day) 
From Iquitos, instead of taking a car and short boat journey, you can take a local public boat from Iquitos to Libertad. We can arrange this option for you, and even accompany you. If you have 1 spare day in your planning and you are on keen on discovering very local life, this is THE alternative of choice to get to Libertad. Very genuine, yet simple and quite fast. Just ask for it when sending your reservation.

Alternative route 2 (3-4 days)

Fly to Tarapoto (direct from Lima), instead of flying to Iquitos and from there arrange road travel to Yurimagas, the last town accessible by road before the jungle. The access from Tarapoto to Yuri is very scenic (+-100kms) but can be equally challenging. Check for road conditions beforehand. From Yuri, take a 2 nights river boat to Nauta. This is a wondeful introduction to the Amazon life !!!

Alternative route 3 (7 days +)
If you really want to explore, and maybe combine with a discovery of Cajamarca, a mythical inca town... from the coast (or by plane from Lima), join Cajamarca, and from there, there are many alternative & off-the-beaten-path routes to get to Tarapoto. Please feel free to ask, and I will be happy to give recommendations on this.
