Iquitos & Amazon


Iquitos is the largest metropolis in the Peruvian Amazon. Spanning twice the size of India, the Amazon Rainforest covers 2.7 million square miles (7 million square km.), and spans across nine South American nations. Peru is home to the second largest territory of the rainforest. The Amazon represents over half of the planet's remaining rainforests, and comprises the largest and most bio-diverse area in the world. It is estimated to have 390 billion individual trees divided into 16,000 species.
