Pucallpa to Iquitos 3 day boat journey

Has anyone done the boat journey from Pucallpa to Iquitos. If so how long did it take and does you have any advice about which boat, cost and any dangers on the way.

1. Re: Pucallpa to Iquitos 3 day boat journey

I did Iquitos downwards, but not all the way to Pucallpa. From Pucallpa to Iquitos may take up to 5 days BTW. You will need to buy a hammock to sleep in, and sleep with your money for precautions, etc. Overall it's a pretty long, boring, pleasant trip- but you won't see much wildlife. Be sure to take bread, tinned fish, and some snacks to ease the boredom, as well as water. Can't remember cost but was pretty cheap. Flying will be a lot quicker, easier- and only very slightly more expensive!
