Suggest Aero Continente from Lima to TarapotO ... spells with an "o"...
Services are with 737-300s generally... good people...
I flew as passenger to Tarapoto then a few days later Iquitos with them...
Fairly recently...

Try to avoid TANS. They use really old 737-200 and have had two serious accidents in the last year. I would fly LanPeru but they do not fly to Tarapoto. Only choice remaining in AeroContinente, though they also use very old aircract, but with a better service.

Good luck

Next flight: IAH-DBX-MRU-ANT
