Airport in Iquitos - Crnl. FAP Francisco Secada Vignetta (IQT) Nov 23, 2009
Iquitos is the biggest Peruvian city in the Amazon. This city is practically and island and is mostly reached by plane. Nevertheless there are not many airlines serving this airport.
Right now they are working on improving the airport, so you might find some parts of the airport closed.
Some things you might have to know about this aiport:
-You're in the middle of the jungle, so expect heat & humidity. There's no a/c here.
-There are a couple of shops where you can find the typical sweets and drinks to taste and take with you.
-Because of the changing weather, delays are not unusual.
-It's a small aiprot and although is the most important in the region, is not that modern yet, but it makes security and claiming bags easy and fast.
-As all the Peruvian aiports, they charge you for an aiport tax you have to pay before departure.
-The best way to reach it from the city is by taxi or Moto taxi. Be aware that the moto taxis are slow. Ask the hotel is they offer a free shuttle.
