Day 1. Arrive in Iquitos

Iquitos is a bustling river city and the largest in the Peruvian Rainforest. The Metropolitan area has 600,000 people living in its four districts.

During the 20th century the city attracted many Europeans immigrants; they contributed to a period of great wealth and social and commercial development. The rubber boom and the associated need for a large workforce had a significant negative effect on the indigenous population. Slavery and gross human rights abuses were widespread, and in some areas 90% of the Indian population was wiped out.
