- Frutas de la Costa is a hidden gem in Iquitos, for it has the most delicious fruit salads in the whole city, yet its location is not visible on the typical tourist circuit. Located on one corner of the plaza 28 de Julio, it is easy to find, but even though the plaza 28 is the second largest plaza in Iquitos, it is rarely visited by tourists. Locals know this place very well though and it is often busy. It is a simple place, clean and comfortable, that offers imported fruit for sale by the kilo. But it is also a fruit cafe, offering two delicious fruit salads, one with ice cream and one without. The fruit salads are made from fresh fruit and prepared to order. A marvelous delight of scrumptious fruit like papaya, mango, banana, watermelon, pear, apple, grape, mandarin, strawberry, pineapple, melon, and exotic favorites like pepina and tuna. They also serve a wide selection of fruit juices, including watermelon and grape juice, which are not common in Iquitos. The seating is comfortable and a large flat screen television provides some entertainment while enjoying your fruit salad. Frutas de la Costa is definitely worth a visit if you are in Iquitos. The plaza de 28 can be reached with a short walk from the plaza or a 2 sole taxi.
