There are 110+ internet cafes in Iquitos and growing daily. Most all have SKYPE. You don’t need to bring your laptop. However, there are also various locations like hotels and restaurants that have wi-fi.

Cell phones: Yes, you can bring your cell with you and you can even purchase a new chip for yours while you are here for about 4 dollars. Or – you can buy a cell here in Iquitos for 60 Soles and you can buy cellphone cards on the street so you can make calls. Receiving calls is free.

Don’t rent a cell phone in the airport in Lima. They are way overpriced and you have to return them as well as pay for all the calls and those calls are more expensive than buying your own phone card. If you buy a cell here, gift it to a Peruvian you have befriended when you leave. They’ll be very happy with that gift.
