My husband and I visited the Peruvian Amazon to celebrate our First Wedding Anniversary. We had a very pleasant stay there. The Rooms were a luxury in the jungle. The Staff was so friendly and accommodating. The food and drinks are very authentic. Our English Guide Moises was very patient during all our activities. He is extremely knowledgable regarding the...

My husband and I just got back from a 3 night stay at the Refugio Amazonas. We had a wonderful time there. Staff was so friendly and accommodating. I had been a bit nervous about staying there, but I was pleasantly surprised. The rooms were beautiful and at night it was so peaceful. We had a great guide Luis C... More

Dear Guest, Thanks your for reviewing Refugio Amazonas. Luis is indeed a great guide of ours, we are glad that he could show you the wildlife even during a friaje (what cold front is called in the Amazon). Friaje comes in these months but fortunately only stays for a very short time. More

The Peruvian Amazon must see. From the first boat trip up the river and the sight of the beautiful remote lodge with warm greetings, you can be immersed in the culture. The jungle walks reveal intriguing nuances about the immense ecosystem - up close and personal - from huge canopy trees to tiny biting ants. The cacophony of sounds lulled... More

A mother-daughter trip that will be remembered!!! Absolutely beautiful accomodations. Close to nature and very comfortable. Food and dining excellent. Friendly and accomodating staff! Guide very knowledgeable. Unfortunate cold front came thru so wildlife limited but then so were the bugs!

I haven't been here yet but I'm booked for it this coming few weeks. Reading the reviews I'm pretty pumped and little trepidation. Coming from the guy who arranges all the family camping up here in canada. But this is not canada. In fact my only reference is 'survivor man' (he's from canada) and has a reality show where he...

Refugio Amazonas was a fantastic resort to stay at. It was impeccably clean and the service given by the staff was 10 out of 10. Food was amazing, rooms were to die for. A great jungle experience with all the comforts of a 5 star resort! The only minus was that they only accepted VISA and since I only had... More

This was my first trip like this. I have wanted to go to the Amazon since I was small. This certainly was a great experience. Right from the boat trip you knew that this was going to be something special. We saw some caiman, capybara very quickly. After a walk in the jungle we got to the lodge. Very beautiful,... More

Our stay was amazing! I went with my sister and we loved every minute; our guide, Luis, was very passionate about the rainforest and had a great sense of humor. All of staff were friendly and professional; the massage after a long day was the best way to go sleep to the sounds of the rainforest. Gladys R San Francisco

I spent in Refugio Amazonas three amazing nights with my friends in November 2013. I've always wanted to write a review but never got time to do it. I've decided now to drop few lines because the place is amazing and it definitely deserves good reviews. It was one the best experiences I had in my life. We spent three... More

We spent 4 days and 3 nights at the lodge this past week, and it lived up to almost all of our expectations. Out guide, Luis C, was very knowledgeable about the different flora and fauna of the amazon. The highlight was the farm visit where we took different kinds of fruits from trees and ate them, some known, some... More

Refugio Amazonas is built on a 200 hectare private reserve on the buffer zone of the Tambopata National Reserve.
