We stayed two nights here on our trip to and from the Tambopata Research Center with Rainforest Expeditions, the first night part of the tour as all boats to TRC have to leave early in the morning. Second night on the way back we added on the extra night to give ourselves more time to do practically nothing other than... More

First time for us to travel to the Amazon region. It was the best experience! From our arrival at the airport in Puerto Maldonado to our arrival at the Refugio Amazonas everything was well organised. Our guide was excellent and very knowledgeable and gave us great opportunities to look at wildlife she spotted at the banks during our boat trip.... More

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.
