    Iquitos Warnings and Dangers

    In downtown Iquitos is an American owned from Texas restaurant that the owner allowed for a white patron of his to spew the word nigger several times in his presence and brandish a firearm to my wife in intimidation after I confronted the individual responsible. The waitresses are told to give me my check. How can an owner of a business condone a...

    Nauta Things to Do

    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...

Isla Indio del Perù

  • GrumpyDiver's Profile Photo

    by GrumpyDiver Updated Oct 12, 2010

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    "The jungle is not a comfortable place" is something our guide kept repeating. The rainforest has all kinds of biting and scratching things that can cause discomfort and even death!

    1. Before you leave home, make sure you have all of your shots and medications. Yellow Fever, Dengue Fever and Malaria are all things you don't want to get. See a travel medicine doctor for the appropriate treatment (immunizations for Yellow Fever), pills (prophylaxis) for malaria and avoidance for Dengue.

    2. If venturing out into the rain forest - have appropirate clothing. Knee-high rubber boots, long sleeved shirt and long pants are a must. A comfortable hat and sunglasses are also high on my hit lits.

    3. Insect replellent - bring lots. Better too much than too little. Use ones that have at least 30% DEET.
