We will start the tour from the Iquitos boulevard, then we will walk (or take a vehicle) to the Belen market, famous for selling exotic meats such as: rare fish, lizard meat, turtle meat, paiche, among others. We will also visit the 'Paquito' passage where natural Amazonian medicine is sold, such as root drinks with aphrodisiac properties and amulets, then we will navigate through the lower part of Belen where the houseboats are located to navigate through its streets such as La Venecia Loretana. Then we will return to the starting point.
This tour will show the other face of the city, an ancient city and life on the river, ideal to discover the social face of the city. As an added bonus, we will invite you to fish for piranhas (optional).
