    Moto-taxis

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The guides lined up a dozen moto-taxis and put us in them, two by two. We had seen 3-wheel taxis in other places that were enclosed cars, but these were motorcycles with an attached 2-person cab. Nina and I were with a nice young man named Jordan. The fleet of taxis cruised through town and then out onto the famous Nauta to Iquitos highway for a bit. Some of the drivers would try to race and pass each other, but ours wasn’t all that speedy.

    The ride was fun, and it gave us a chance to see a little more of the town and countryside.

    Handicraft vendors lined the street that was on our way back to the waterfront I bought a beautiful basket. It is woven from philodendron root and has a couple of rust colored bands which were dyed with achiote (paprika.)

    What to buy: Baskets, carvings, items woven from palm fiber, whatever catches your eye.

    Vendors also sell things to the local people. You can see how the palm roofing is put together because strips of it are sold on the streets.

    What to pay: My basket was under $10 U.S.
