We really enjoyed our 4 days stay at this lodge. You read a lot of reviews about places being noisy, or being able to hear other guests but that is the nature of a bamboo lodge. We didn't really notice or care! The food we superb, some of the best we had on the trip. The staff and guides were... More

Refugio Amazonas is a gorgeous lodge. Our room was extremely comfortable with high quality linens and a bug canopy. The open air set up was perfect for getting a close-to-nature feel. I sighted a monkey right out my window and of course, could hear all the sounds of the rainforest, which I loved. The 3 meals provided buffet style were... More

Jesus was our guide. He did a really good job making the experience interesting. The lodge is unbelievable considering where it is in the rain forest and the distance from Puerto Maldonado, which is closest "town". All of the people who worked there were customer service oriented. Truly a unique and unforgettable experience.

In the lodge, everything is just like holiday inn; while out for the jungle, you get hands very dirty, this is what Amazonas Paradise about. The only bad thing is the biodiversity is low in Refugio Amazonas, for those wanna see more animals, go to Tambopata.

Who had any idea we would find a 5 star hotel in the jungle? We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this beautiful lodge. The service was absolutely fantastic and the food and rooms were beautiful. Our hikes and activities were terrific too. We highly recommend this lodge!

Thanks to our fantastic guide Katherine, we had an amazing experience at Refugio Amazonas! My friend and I were in a group of six 30-somethings who started the trip on the same day, and spent 4 nights in the jungle. The 2.5 hour boat ride to get there is an experience on its own, and we saw lots of wildlife;... More

Refugio Amazonas is the latest addition to Rainforest Expeditions Tambopata portfolio. As a charming 32 bedroom lodge, it is well placed immediately adjacent to the Tambopata National Reserve. Its location is ideal for stand alone three night experiences and for breaking the expeditions to and from Tambopata Research Center. Refugio Amazonas is built on a 200 hectare private reserve on the buffer zone of the Tambopata National Reserve. It is becoming integrated to the communities of Brazil nut extractors that surround it, attempting to extend the benefits of ecotourism to the families committed to sustainable forest use. ... more   less
