What about the Jungle in Peru?

Hi. I've been living in Lima for almost 3 months and I haven't heard much about the Jungle part of Peru. I been told that Tarapoto is a nice place to experience but I'm sure that there are a lot more places that have the awesomeness of the Amazonas. 

Any suggestions about places to visit, food to eat, travel expenses, transport and acommodations will be much appreciated.

When I went to Peru I did visit Tarapoto briefly.  There are some waterfalls there, however I think the activities are more limited.  Iquitos is a popular destination in the jungle, with river cruises and lots of activities to choose from.  It is also known for good nightlife.

For semi-jungle, Chachapoyas is really interesting too!  They have a number of ruins to see there, and it's very remote.  The bus ride there takes a lonng time but it's amazing.  There is a waterfall there which is one of the largest in the world.

Mentioned in this answer:

  1. Tarapoto (city)
  2. Iquitos (city)
  3. Chachapoyas (attraction)
