Peru Series (12) Iquitos and Amazon 祕魯系列 (12) 伊基托斯與亞馬遜

Iquitos is one of the gateway cities to Amazon. Since it’s challenging to navigate through the Amazon area without supports from travel agencies, I would suggest visitors to book tour packages through lodges and let them take care of all logistics.

伊基托斯(Iquitos)為前往亞馬遜雨林探險的主要城市之一。由於在沒有旅行社協助的情況下,自助旅客很難在亞馬遜區域旅遊,因此推薦大家訂購由旅舍組織的旅行團,把一切行程安排都交給專業團隊處理。

Lodge/Travel Agency: Muyuna Lodge

  • (+) Located 140km from Iquitos and deep into the jungle, so you can see animals in their habitats (e.g. piranhas, snakes, monkeys, spiders, sloths, birds, rats, caimans, frogs)
  • (+) Seamless transportation from hotel pickup to navigation in the Amazon
  • (+) Excellent accommodation with enough lighting, hot shower (not guaranteed) and comfortable beds
  • (+) High service level with enough English fluency, attentive staff and knowledgeable guides
  • (+) On the last day, there is a shuttle bus from Muyuna office to the airport, so we can explore Iquitos a bit between arriving in the office and departing to the airport

旅遊代辦:Muyuna 旅社

  • (+) 距離伊基托斯 140 公里、深入叢林,所以可以在動物棲息地看到動物、而不是在籠子內(例:食人魚、蛇、猴子、樹懶、鳥、老鼠、小鱷魚、青蛙等)
  • (+) 在伊基托斯和亞馬遜區域的接送與交通都安排得非常好
  • (+) 住宿條件很好,有足夠的燈光、舒服的床,可能會有熱水供應(但無法保證)
  • (+) 服務水平很高、英文溝通無礙,人員都很親切、導遊知識豐富
  • (+) 最後一天會安排從 Muyuna 伊基托斯辦公室前往機場的接駁車,可以在伊基托斯觀光一段時間後,再搭乘接駁車前往機場

Notes

  • Prepare malaria pills, yellow fever vaccination and repellent (DDT should be applied on clothes, not on skin)
  • Prepare light-colored long shirts/pants (Muyuna provides free boots), swimming suits and flashlight
  • Since it’s humid in the rainforest, handwashing clothes are not easy to dry even when the weather is good
  • In Iquitos, highly recommend the Fitzcarraldo restaurant on Napo street and walking along the riverside

大王筆記

  • 施打黃熱病疫苗、準備瘧疾藥和防蚊液(DDT 防蚊液只能噴在衣服上、不可以噴在皮膚上)
  • 準備淺色長袖衣服與褲子(Muyuna 免費提供橡膠長筒鞋)、泳衣(在河裡游泳)和手電筒(夜遊時需要)
  • 因為雨林內很潮溼,就算天氣很好,手洗衣服還是不容易乾
  • 在伊基托斯,強烈推薦在 Napo 路上的 Fitzcarraldo 餐廳,吃飽還可以在河岸走走
