El Portón

Top choice guesthouse in Moyobamba

In the middle of downtown seemingly oblivious to the honks of 100 mototaxis, El Portón hides a heavenly little garden full of exotic jungle plants behind a high wall. Surrounding the greenery are the small but charming rooms, each equipped with an alfresco hammock, comfy beds and bright Peruvian paintings on the walls.

All said, it's an unexpected and spirit-reviving little hideaway of which the friendly owner is rightly proud. Breakfast costs S10 extra.
