After spending some time in Iquitos, my friends and I just happened upon La Casa Fitzcarraldo and could not have been happier. After a couple of sweaty days in town, we were elated to find this beautiful hotel with an outdoor pool, beautiful grounds and lots of animal friends. The room was spacious, clean and modern- a nice change from our other experiences in Iquitos. Standards in Iquitos are not high. We were having a very hard time adjusting to places with no toilet seats, no toilet paper and dirty conditions. The Fizcarraldo is a beautiful sanctuary and only a 3 sole drive outside of town. I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone planning a trip to Iquitos. The staff were very friendly, breakfast was great (and free) and they also have a full menu to choose from later on in the day. Internet access was included and we were allowed to leave our bags there while we went on a two night jungle trek. Check this place out!
