A special place to stay, it is about a two hour boat trip down stream, and then a five minute walk through the jungle on a paved path way. There are great guides who are fun and are good with children. Though sometimes you bump into other lodges groups, you are normally alone on the trips. They take you to... More

In the Amazon night vs. day is a huge difference. Being the only room available, we paid for a premium room which came with a lock door, hammock, porch area and king bed. The room and washroom itself is great - clean, very amazon themed and beautiful. However even with the mosquito net the room at night is quite scary!... More

I have travelled to hundreds of cities and stayed in hundreds of hotels of all ranges in 103 countries. Staying at both the Refugio and Posada lodges for 5D/4N was one of the most wonderful experiences I have had. I could not have imagined a more perfect jungle experience. I personally loved both locations, but preferred the Refugio. It was... More

We, that's my wife and I had an exciting stay when we were visiting the Refugio Amazonas in June. The lodge and the envoirnment around was very impressive and thanks to our guide "Michael" we were able to discover some hidden miracle of the rain forrest.

I stayed here for 3 nights at the end of a very full-on trip to Peru which included walking the Inca Trail. Having read reviews and not being keen on spiders in particular, I was slightly nervous about this part of the trip, but I wouldn't have missed it for the world, what an experience! We flew into Puerto Maldonado... More

Refugio Amazonas is a beautiful lodge with exceptional service, well trained staff and in great part of the Amazon. If I return to the Amazon, I would probably stay here again. The buildings are well designed, well built and very comfortable. It is an eco-lodge with a 5-star feel to it.

This is an amazing and comfortable lodge right in amongst the jungle. Bird life and wildlife both from within and immediately around the lodge reached by walking was outstanding. The service was excellent. All food included, also excellent. One of the best things about the lodge was the personalized guide service. They were dedicated and extremely knowledgeable! Room are open... More

The best way to experience the Rainforest is to stay at "Refugio Amazonas" one of the 3 resorts operated by Rainforest Expeditions. This was definitely one of the highlights from our trip to Peru. We spent 3 nights at the Refugio and are very glad we did. Our guide Jarinsosn was the BEST! He made our excursions fun and exciting.... More
