La Patarashca

Top choice hotel in Tarapoto
Image by

It must be hard to recreate a tranquil jungle resort in the middle of hot, honking Tarapoto, but La Patarashca pulls it off with aplomb. The key(s): sprawling grounds with jungle-like fauna, a curvaceous turquoise swimming pool, spacious common areas replete with books and art, and comfortable rooms adorned with florescent paintings and crafty lamps that feel homey and welcoming.

A few ornery macaws drive home a sense of place, as does the best regional restaurant in town, attached by a walkway.

Add S30 per night for rooms with air-conditioning.
