ranging from the serene and secluded to the crowded and lively. No

For the true
adventurer at heart, the Peruvian Amazon rainforest offers up a nice
opportunity to rough it. Second only to the Brazilian Amazon in
terms of area, the Peruvian jungle covers half of the country. The
cities that surround the rainforest are relatively devoid of those
modern conveniences that have come to characterize modern society.
Some highly isolated tribes still survive deep in the jungles.
Though it is everyday being threatened by industrialization, much of
the rainforest continues to accommodate a rich storage of
biodiversity. The city of Iquitos, located on the Amazon River, is a
good place to begin tours of the rainforest. The open air market
there is particularly worth seeing. It has a large area devoted to
natural medicines taken from the rainforest.
