There are great eats at Iquitos’ markets, particularly the Belén mercado where a menú , including jugo especial (jungle juice) costs S5. Look out for specialties including meaty Amazon worms, ishpa (simmered sabalo fish intestines and fat) and sikisapa (fried leafcutter ants; abdomens are supposedly tastiest) and watch your valuables. Another good market for cheap eats is Mercado Central .
