Hotel Description

The El Mirador is a family-run hotel in the jungle city of Tarapoto in northern-central Peru. The hotel boasts a strategic location just a short walk from the downtown square and offers lovely panoramic views thanks to its being situated in the area of highest elevation in the city.

Guests can relax on the garden terrace, or in the hammocks on the rooftop terrace against a backdrop of the Cerro Escalera, the Staircase Mountain, and the lush forests skirting Tarapoto. The hotel's garden is frequently visited by friendly monkeys, other mammals and tropical birds.

The bright and clean guest rooms come with amenities that include a fan, cable television, private bathroom and garden view. There is a trail leading from the hotel to the Shilcayo River, passing the rural neighborhood of Achual before encountering the spurs of Cerro Escalera.


The hotel is located four blocks from Tarapoto's Plaza de Armas atop a hill overlooking the city and the surrounding jungle. The neighborhood is peaceful, safe and free of traffic.

Food & Beverage

Each morning the hotel serves an optional breakfast on the rooftop terrace. Breakfast items include coffee, milk, fruit juices, fruit salad, fresh bread, butter, cheese, eggs prepared any style, jam and olives. There are many restaurants nearby which offer Amazonian cuisine.

We had a lovely 3 days at this hotel. The owner and all her staff are so helpful and friendly that we felt like part of the family! The breakfast on the roof terrace was lovely, the rooms were spotlessly clean and it was a great location - quiet but easy walk into the centre of town. We would definitely go back!
