From the moment we were picked up at the airport, bus and boat ride down river and the short walk to the lodge, it was amazing!! All the staff were very knowledgable of the area, culture and people. Everyone ensured we had the best experience possible. Our guide, Marlena (sp) was special. She was so easy to be with, her... More

Such a beautiful experience. Very close to the beautiful nature. The design and deco of the rooms etc was amazing. Food was very, very good and guides inspiring, nice and good. Returning to the rooms at night, after dinner and a cocktail in the bar, candles and bio-gas lamps delicately light up the walkways. An extremely good experience and we... More

What a wonderful experience!!! In the middle of a jungle/rainforest, surrounded by all kinds of wildlife. It is not for the feint of heart or physically challenged, however. It is very hot, very humid, and filled with numerous strenuous and challenging activities. Lots of hiking and adventure in the jungle. The trip to the lodge itself from the river is... More

We booked the 4 day 3 night adventure package. We were met at the airport by staff of river expeditions. After having a chance to re-pack our bag at their office less than 5 minutes from the airport we were driven out to the long boat launch about 40 mintues away. Neither the office nor the boats are near the... More

Where do I start,,, The trip of a lifetime. This was to be a trip to overcome my fear of spiders. I'm so proud... After a pretty long boat ride to get us to the lodge. Josh met us at the entrance with a warm welcome, giving us information about what to expect. We stayed 3 nights/four days. They do... More

Finshed a great Aztec journey with a 3 night/4 day stay at this enviro friendly and very sustainable 'resort'. Loved the design, all suspended in timber above the site, there is an central lounge/dining/bar area and timber bridged walkways to the accommodation wings with rooms open to the jungle on one side. You really get the feeling you are amongst... More

This place is beautiful. It's amazing that you can have a room with a totally open wall (or lack of)! The beds were amazingly comfy. This was the best 2 nights of sleep I had in all of Peru! The buffet was nice, they always had vegetarian options and made sure the vegetarians had enough to eat.

We were a group of 10 people and we spend 3 nights/4 days at Refugio Amazonas. Our arrival was well greeted with fresh juice and quick orientation by the lodge manager. The rooms were nicely done with mosquito nets. Considering the moisturous weather, we did find the bed and comforter had an odor which took a couple of nights for... More

My husband and I stayed at the Refugio for three nights, from 30 June through 3 July, as part of a large group. We loved everything about the Refugio -- the spotlessly clean rooms, the peaceful main lodge, the delicious food (and the special effort to make food for us vegetarians -- so thoughtful!), the quiet location, the interesting excursions,...
