Is Iquitos Worth Visiting for Solo Female Travelers?

Iquitos, the largest city in the Peruvian rainforest, is a unique destination isolated from Peru's western cities by the enveloping Amazon. Lying in the heart of the Amazonas, it is the stepping stone to exploring the diverse flora and fauna of the jungle. Known as the 'Capital of the Peruvian Amazon,' it serves as a hub for eco-tourism, leading visitors to untouched indigenous tribes, various wildlife sanctuaries, and the spectacular beauty of the Amazon River. It is also famous for its floating neighborhoods called Belen, the enchanting Pacaya-Samiria National Reserve, and its vibrant marketplaces rich in local handicrafts, exotic fruits, and delectable Amazon cuisine.
