We were met at the airport by our guide and taken to HQ. There we had to prepare a small bag for the journey to the lodge. The entire tour was extremely well organised and caters for all. The jungle lodge had really comfortable rooms and served fantastic food, accompanied by really great staff. The rooms are open to the... More

This jungle lodge is in the "buffer zone" outside of Tambopata National Reserve, we spend one night on our way to the Tambopata Research Center (which is the only lodging in the reserve). We did the night tour and walked by the harpy eagles nest and climbed their canopy tower. I think an evening and one morning too short to... More

Well organised transfer by bus then boat. Lovely lodge, with 3-sided rooms that are open to the rainforest, which we loved but some guests might find off-putting. Don't go here if you are bothered by people's noises the other side of the very thin reed bedroom wall, or by insects and being open to nature! We were irritated by lots... More

Really beautiful setting. The rooms are comfortable and clean. All the jungle noises really help you nod off at night and then wake you at dawn! The staff make sure your nets are down for bedtime. Love the little eco toiletries. Pedro was our guide, he was really knowledgeable and had a cheeky sense of humour. Loved all the treks... More

Accommodation was very good - long walks - not as may animals as we hoped to see. Siting in the jungle is very sympathetic - enjoyed the boat trips immensly. Food was perfect for the location and the service was excellent

Bad : When arrived, we didn't get the room expected (a weird 4 single bed room) and the lodge manager Yasmani, didn't wanted to arrange anything. We had to do a big scene during the dinner, yelling at him and threaten to leave the lodge immediately to have a double bedroom miraculously available. You can tell the lodge is quite... More

My husband and sister stayed at Refugio Amazonas from December 28th-30th. Our guide, Ederson, was very knowledgeable of the Tambopata area. The food: breakfast, lunch and dinner, was excellent as well as the entire staff at Refugio Amazonas. The rooms and bathrooms were spotless. Bring binoculars and sandals. This is a unique experience like no other. I highly recommend this... More

Where do I start..!? The boat ride to the lodge was a long and uncomfortable one, but when we arrived you soon forgot how sore your bum was.. So breathtaking after we walked 15 minutes from the water to lodge on stepping stones- be careful of falling Brazil nut pods! Once we arrived to the front of the lodge, it... More

The lodge is beautiful and the open concept allowed for a jungle experience like no other. I loved the morning sound of the jungle roaring and chirping to life. The food was excellent. There was a variety of tours and excursions offered each day.

Dear Visitor, Thanks for choosing Refugio Amazonas as your destination to the Peruvian Amazon. We are glad that you liked the open-to-nature concept of our lodge. Did you know that you can listen to the rainforest ambient in our homepage again, recorded in our lodge? We hope that you will return to Refugio one day in the future. More
