Location

San Martin, Peru

Known as the City of Palms, Tarapoto is in the district of San Martin, located on the high jungle plateau in the northern part of Peru. Tarapoto features some of the most spectacular natural beauty. There are various scenic outlooks, waterfalls, lakes, rivers, fauna and flora of all sorts, and some of the most interesting people in the world live in this area.

Tarapoto is often used as a "jump off" point for excursions into the vast Amazon rainforest where diversity in species reaches its maximum expression such as in Tingana and Pacaya Samiria national reserve and for tours of the North East of Peru including the Chachapoyas culture in Amazonas with its fascinating but not well known archaeology and history, the Gran Vilaya ruins and the Kuelap fortress (Machu Picchu of the North).


Tarapoto has a myriad of restaurants, hotels, local markets, and other natural attractions that would interest tourists from all walks of life. Tarapoto has a rich cultural heritage and many historic landmarks nearby. Indeed, it is a perfect place to discover and learn more about this exotic country.


Furthermore, beautiful landscapes, amazing waterfalls, lagoons, orchids, adventure tourism such as river rafting and hiking in the tropical Andes and bird watching attract numerous visitors to this area. LATAM, Star Peru, Peruvian Airlines and Viva Air fly between Lima and Tarapoto.
