There are great eats at Iquitos’ markets, particularly the Belén mercado where a set menú here, including jugo especial (jungle juice) is less than 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 .
