Just returned from Iquitos - a city so different from anything in Peru! Took two terrific tours with Dawn on the Amazon. The visit to Monkey Island was truly memorable but it is the trip down the rivers that will stay with me. Marmalita is a truly knowlegeable guide and her insights into the local culture made the trip so much more interesting and informative. She was able to answer all our questions (and there were many) and she pointed out so many interesting aspects of the jungle to look for and see. Great way to see the jungle in a short time.
