The city of Pucallpa is located in the department of Ucayali, in the central eastern end of Peru, on the banks of the Ucayali River, in the middle of the Amazon jungle at 154 m.a.s.l. In the city there are abundant trees, especially in scarcely developed areas. Its soil is like clay and dissolves easily, becoming muddy. It has slight land inclination, with an average of ±3 meters of elevation. The soil of Pucallpa is poor for agriculture, although forestry is carried out. The main crops that can be used within the region (outside of Pucallpa) are corn, yucca, banana and a large variety of fruits. However, urban land can produce obstructions since grazing areas are located in faraway places.
Pucallpa has some important hydrographic reliefs. The Yarinacocha lagoon is located in the northeast and has a very small surface; next to it is the Cashibococha lagoon, with a smaller surface located at the end. The Ucayali River is the center of communication and extends from north to south. Additionally, the natural pipe of Yumantay is conserved, located on the right of the Centenario Avenue and halfway from the Amazonas Avenue (obstructed route).
