Goodness, you are certainly going to deepest Peru. Maybe you will meet Paddington Bear there! May I ask why you are going to that region? I'm sure it is not just for tourism. I can't see you going there on a whim, and would imagine that you already have some contacts there. Nevertheless, just in case, here is a website I found that seems helpful: http://www.livinginperu.com/blogs/travel/209
The Monte Azul looks pretty Holiday Innish in a Peruvian way, so I guess it will be adequate, if not memorable. http://www.hotelmonteazul.com.pe/index.html
None the less, I have to admit that Tarapoto is not very high on my list of places to visit in Peru. As it's Amazon Basin, I would take normal precautions for travelling in rain forest regions. Check the CDC website http://wwwn.cdc.gov/travel/destinationPeru.aspx. It tends to be pretty gloomy, but the one thing that may be recommendable is malaria prophylaxis, though I have travelled to the jungles of Peru and Brasil with little more than a bottle of aspirin, and lived to tell the tale. But don't take my word for it. I'm not a doctor, so I may have been incredibly foolish.
Hope this helps, and that someone who has been to San Martin can be more help than I am.
Good luck
Martin
