We loved our stay! The lodge is beautiful. Our guide, Listen, was a perfect match for our family. The staff was friendly and useful. This lodge offered the most organised experience I have had living in Peru 5 years. Now what you should know: -Rooms are open to the jungle and the roof is open to the next rooms so... More

This is an amazing place, but if your looking for luxury this is not your place. The rooms are clean and the lodge is just beautiful. The food was the best. Our guide Frank was kind and had a vast knowledge of plants and animals. Internet was sporadic but you didn't come here for that. The peace and quiet was... More

I LOVED my stay at the Refugio Amazonas. I visited South America with my mum, and we had a twin bedroom to stay in. I thought the experience of having a totally open bedroom made you feel at one with the surroundings and it definitely added to the experience. People who have complained about insects really shouldn't have visited the... More

We spent our last 4 days in Perù staying at Refugio Amazonas. We studied a lot before booking this lodge, so we thought to know almost everything about it. But we missed something. Let's start writing about the lodge. It's a really beautiful structure, all buildings are made with local wood, everything is well cared and well furnished. There are... More

After spending 2 weeks traveling around Peru and participating in various tours and activities, I have come to realize just how much your guide and group affect your experience. This was made extremely apparent during a trip to Refugio Amazonas. The pros - Beautiful rooms! Although there were a couple of cockroaches (to be expected in a warm and humid... More

I stopped here for one night over on my way to Tambopata Research Center. The place is magical. After a five hour boat ride, it is so nice to relax in the hammock in the room and watch the happenings of the jungle. In the evening it is lit by old fashioned style gasoline lanterns. The rooms are all open... More

Dear Guest, Thank you for reviewing Refugio Amazonas. We are glad to hear that you enjoyed our lodge so much, however we are very sorry to hear what happened to your phone. As you mentioned, animals are most active during the early mornings and twilight, and some nocturnal animals at night. Hence we recommend our guests to calculate enough time... More

We were at Refugio Amazonas for 4 days and 3 nights. It was one of the most memorable experiences of our Christmas trip to Peru. We arrived during the wet season, but had only one day of rain during our stay. Refugio Amazonas is awesome! The staff were very friendly and helpful. The lodge is in the middle of the... More

An adventure out of the ordinary. A view into the life of the Amozonas. An unforgettable memory that I will treasure all my life. Appreciating the ecological thinking, Service minded staff, good food. Fantastic to be laying in an hammock listening to the sounds of the jungle. All the birds, insects, butterflies, snakes. The information about medical plants was most... More

What an adventure, from beginning to end! We traveled up river during a torrential rain fall, watching logs and obstacles flood towards us as our driver safely navigated. Upon our arrival, we were greeted with juice and warm washcloths. The activities planned for the first night were postponed due to the water, so we relaxed in the hammocks and enjoyed... More

1.First the guide, Ines was worst that you could imagine. Very low level of culture, lack of knowledge about the forest or no will to share more information (she had 3-4 pre-recorded speeches, mainly about ants and was ready to shoot this info wherever and whenever possible). She completely forgot that she was supposed to take care of the group... More
