Hello!

does anyone know the cheapest way to fly from Lima to Iquitos? Is it better to arrange in Lima, how far in advance does it have to be done?

thanks!

LAN has right now special offer for Iquitos,
paid 3 weeks ago for the roundtrip $1o4.00
Aireport tax in Lima and Iquitos is $ 6.00 for domestic flights.

If you dont have a hostel yet,the PASCANA is very nice and safe,good location.Be carefull if you visit Belen the floating part of Iquitos.
Good food at the Malecon,the Fitzgeraldo was my favorit restaurant.

More questions about Iquitos?ask me,I was 10 days there around,I liked it.

Belen is the part in Iquitos with the floating houses,very poor,if you walk the aerea it is recomended to do it not alone,tourists get mugged.
It is safer go with a guide and take a kanu tour.
The market is very crouded,keep your eyes open,go in the morning hours,later the stench is horrible,dont get lost there,the market is very big but you have to see it.
