“dangerous without an armed escort”
Reviewed June 26, 2009

well tarapoto has fantastic scenery and the whole area is breathtakeing but it is impoverished and poor although most people there are truely dear but this is not an area for the faint of heart as armed robbery of tourists is common to the point of being almost routine so be warned expect the first class scenery second to none meet some of the poorest but lovelyest people and expect to meet the most dangerous take plenty of precautions with your possesions and every security measure you can we were held up by armed bandits and were shocked how routine it all is

1 Thank gusoram
