Arrived after sundown....makes getting around a little harder,but the jungle experience is great! Rooms with outside view will take some getting used to,as will sleeping under mosquito netting! The staff and food are good and since we are headed further up river after one night this will seem like a 5 star resort!

I went here for a 4 day stay during our 2 week trip to Peru. Excellent transport, super friendly staff.. Variety of food is awesome and they cater to every kind of food requirement. And knowledgeable guides. The place is rustic but not primitive. Love the idea that you are living in and with nature and at the same time... More

Excellent staff and guides. The 3-day ecological program is active and slightly demanding but a very rewarding experience. The food was very good, although we would suggest adding some more adventurous local food options. On arrival, there was a mix-up on delivering our luggage to the right lodge, but the staff was apologetic and helped get us through the first... More

The lodge itself is great with open floor plans which allows nature to flow in your living area. The staff and tour guides are sincere and friendly. Our tour guides Luis and Marco went out of their way to make sure everyone in our group has a good experience. They were also great at educating us about life in Peru,... More

Moises was an amazing host, with tremendous knowledge about the wildlife, plants, and trees in the area, and a friendly style of story telling. The staff were very helpful, and they're happy to answer any questions you may have about planning.

Having done our research, we knew what to expect accommodation wise, and so really enjoyed our stay at Refugio. Our only regret is only staying for two nights, which made for too short a trip. The staff, guides and food was great, and we were luckily teamed up with a great group of fellow travellers. The excursions are OK, and... More

This was a very good experience, but make sure it is right for you. The lodge was actually quite upscale, not primitive at all. The food was excellent. The staff does an excellent job managing the activities. Our guide, Uriel, was quite knowledgeable. The only caveat is....KNOW that this is going to be work. Its the jungle!! There is a... More

We knew we were in for an adventure the minute the boat left the dock. The trip to the lodge was filled with wildlife. We stopped to view capybaras and a tayra (even the guide was excited to see this). We spotted some macaws and parrots at a clay lick. The scenery was beautiful. Our guide, Luis, was great and...
