In the city of Iquitos, one thing you will notice is the noise. The source of the racket is the taxis, nearly all of which are glorified three-wheelers with a bench in the back and a plastic tarp as a roof. As with most service providers in Peru, taxi drivers are generally willing to bargain, which is a good idea because prices seemed to be elevated for tourists. If you can speak Spanish, you will be able to bring down the price significantly. Another idea is to hire a taxi for a day. Although this may seem extravagant, the price may only be about $10, and a taxi can hold two to three people, plus some luggage.
