In the north of the country, Tarapoto is the outpost and guardian of the entrance to the Amazon. It is a humid and hot city, on the edge of the suffocating, the foretaste of the equatorial jungle: exuberant vegetation and fauna that proliferates in all directions! The sites to visit are innumerable, between waterfalls, lakes, animal observations, river descents... The economic dynamism of the city is due to the cultivation of cotton, tobacco, but also coca in the more isolated parts. However, be reassured, all the areas around Tarapoto where tourists venture are more than safe since the last terrorist movements disappeared 15 years ago. All that remains in Tarapoto is the pleasant climate and all the possible diversions you can imagine.
