The Plaza is nice. The old Mayor used to shut down the streets around the plaza on Sunday nights. It was a lot of fun. All the families bring their kids. I was great. I hope the new Mayor continues this tradition.

Plaza De Armas in Iquitos is one of the busiest centers we visited. Lots of shops and close to the water which is their mainstay of business. Motor Cars (tuk-tuk) by the thousands!!! Cheap and fun transportation.
