iquitos Iquitos is home to the prominent Peruvian conservation research organization, Project Amazonas. It has three biological stations on tributaries of the Amazon, which sometimes allow visitors. Scientists, students, and tourists fly into Iquitos, where they transfer to boats for the remainder of their travel to the Project's research stations. Iquitos has a growing reputation as a tourist destination, especially as a base for tours of the Amazon rainforest and the Pacaya - Samiria National Reserve. Other tourists travel downriver to Manaus, Brazil, the other rubber-industry city in the interior of the Amazon basin, and finally the Atlantic Ocean, which is 3,360 km (2,088 mi) away.
