Yurimaguas is a port in the Peruvian Amazon, with river traffic arriving from Iquitos. The town itself is often just a transfer en route to/from Tarapoto

Get in[edit]

There are boats upstream to Pucallpa, & downstream past Lagunas & the Pacaya-Samiria National Park & on to Iquitos. Eduardo boats are the most frequent & recommended.

Get around[edit]

There are road & river connections to Tarapoto, & buses from there to the Pacific coast.

Do[edit][add listing]

If you want to take a trip to Pacaya-Samiria National Reserve, you're better off going to Lagunas by yourself and booking a trip from there. The only thing the tour agency in Yurimaguas will do for you is buying a ticket for a boat (only one way) and booking a tour in another agency based in Lagunas.

Drink[edit][add listing]

Sleep[edit][add listing]

There are a few hostals in the main town (around the Plaza da Armas). However, most boats allow you to stay overnight before the start of the journey, and for no extra charge.

Get out[edit]

Frequent combis run to Tarapoto (S/. 10). Ejetur has buses through Chiclayo & on to Trujillo.

Visit yacuruna - jungle amazon adventure (Plaza de armas downstairs) and ask Winston for all boats to Iquitos schedules. You can stay the night in his hostal.
