WHEN TO GO TO IQUITOS
A recommended time to visit the cities of the Peruvian Amazon is during the Feast of San Juan Bautista (Saint John the Baptist), celebrating the purification of water and giving thanks for the gifts of Nature.
The "Fiesta of San Juan" celebrated around its central day of June 24, causes feelings of brotherhood, unity and joyousness among the children of the Jungle, as their Patron Saint was, according to the legend, chosen by God Himself.
