Was pleasantly surprised how wonderful this resort was. The meals absolutely beautiful, & staff very friendly. Be prepared for a lot of walking & trekking, and early mornings maximising the cooler part of the day. There is down time after lunch for a couple of hours, then another trek until dinner. You have a choice not to go, but you... More

Refugio Amazonas provides an incredibly unique, unforgettable experience in the Amazon rainforest. The lodge is a smooth running machine- from the minute you are picked up at the airport and greeted with drinks at the nearby welcome center in P.M., to the trip schedule, to the departure. You can tell that much work and oversight has been put into designing... More

Dear Guest, Great to read that you had such a nice experience during your trip to Refugio Amazons. We usually put visitors together into small groups depending on their time schedule, but there is also an option to choose your own guide at the booking. In that case you won't need to share your guide with other visitors and you... More

We stayed 3 nights at Refuio Amazonas and our only regret was that we couldn't stay for longer. The lodge is absolutely stunning, the food delicious and the staff lovely. I also highly recommend the massages. Our guide Luis P was fantastic, not only was he very friendly but he was also so knowledgeable and we saw so much wildlife... More

I stayed one night at Refugio Amazonas on the way further up the river to Tambopata Research Center. Refugio Amazonas is truly luxury in the rainforest. Great rooms with open air to the rainforest. Great guides, nice food and bar. You will get more animals and birds and way out of civilization if you move on to the Tambopata Research... More

This I have to say, is the most unusual place I have ever stayed. The eco-friendly Refugio Amazonas is a great place to see nature up close. The rooms are basic but charming, with one entire side open to the forest. I think with hindsight we should have opted for the limited electricity supply offered in some rooms, as trying... More

This place is an oasis in the jungle. The accommodation was top notch, staff very friendly and helpful and the food was fantastic. I'd highly recommend this place. The only down side is the boat ride to get there but the views were amazing and can be used to chill out and relax before arriving in paradise

Fantastic three days and two nights in the Amazon. We had Edson as our guide who was knowledgeable, warm and funny. Food was good, beds were comfortable, shower was powerful. It was very hot when we went, so pack lots of light weight, but full length sleeved tops, trousers and bug spray. Cannot recommend the night walks enough! And if... More

My wife and I have traveled to Peru for many years. We enjoy seeing new things and thought the rain forest would be a new adventure. What we failed to realize is that we like, but do not love, staring at exotic animals and plants for hours. This review is as much about choosing the correct vacation as it is... More

This was our first eco tour and it did not disappoint! Everything was wonderful, from the boat ride in, the food, our room and even the fresh made tropical cocktails served at night. Our guide Frank was very knowledgeable of the area and the plants and animals. I would definitely recommend this lodge to anyone interested in seeing the Peru... More

Our first trip ever to a rain forest in Peru was beautiful and amazing. The offices and meeting place was just outside the airport. We had a guided bus ride and then a guided 3 hour boat ride to the property It was an open air gorgeous facility. We joined others in forest hikes and nature treks and a night... More
