Nature is the greatest work of art in the world. More than 200 species of birds, more than 7,300 species of flowering plants, more than 2,500 species of daytime butterflies, among other living beings, share their habitat in the Peruvian Amazon; forming an immense and overwhelming array of shapes and colors. It is a work of art whose canvas is nature and whose medium is water and earth.

ENTRANCE TO THE PERUVIAN AMAZON
A city built around the Amazon. Iquitos is located in a privileged point. Bordered by the torrentous streams of the Amazon, the city is a strategic point from which to discover the immensity of the Amazon. The river port of Iquitos is the starting point to discover a land rich in diversity, both in flora and fauna and in culture and life forms.
Buildings that speak of another era. Iquitos, located more than 1,000km from Lima and only accessible by air, has been a city strongly marked by different historical moments. Many of the luxurious constructions that can be admired among its streets were built in the last decades of the nineteenth century, when the exploitation of rubber generated an economic impasse.
The Peruvian Amazon has a tropical climate, with an average temperature of 27ºC (80ºF), with a minimum temperature of 21ºC (70ºF) and a maximum of 32ºC (90ºF).
The year is divided into two seasons, the one of emptying, from June to October, and the one of increasing, from November to May.
Dry Season (June – October) At this time the climate is drier and the low water levels attract creatures that can hardly be seen in the rainy season. The water level of the rivers falls during this period, exposing surprising sandy beaches. An ideal time to stroll through the forest and discover the Amazonian flora and fauna.
Rainy Season (November – May) This time of year is marked by rains and storms. It is in these months when most plants bloom or bear fruit, creating a unique show. Birds and primates are attracted by this spectacle and can be seen on the banks of the river.
