My family just returned from spending 4 days 3 nights in the Amazon. We stayed at el Refugio Amazonas. Our 5 and 7 years old had an amazing time looking for animals, finding bugs, and learning about everything. Our guide, Maralene, was extremely patient and knowledgeable. The kids teared up when they had to say good bye. On our return... More

This is an amazing place! It is not only a luxury lodge or hotel; it is a fully inclusive multi-day guided tour of the Amazon. Beautifully presented, luxurious and designed to keep you in touch and engaged with the beautiful sounds, sights and smell of the jungle. The living area is open all around to the jungle and even the... More

I am a total bathroom - germaphobe. I was very worried about staying here because I did not know what to expect. This was one of the best experiences I've ever had. The rooms are 3 walled-rooms with an open face to the jungle. You would expect that means a very loud and bug-infested stay, surprisingly, it was neither. It... More

Wonderful staff and a wonderful experience!! Our family of six enjoyed our first visit to the Amazon rainforest. Our guide was great and customized our visit to meet our needs. It was a memorable experience.

Our first stop in Peru was in Refugio Amazonas and it was our first experience inside a forest for 4 days. We were picked up by our Guide Jose at the PEM airport and from there, he took good care of us. From the airport, we were transferred to HQ in a bus (5 mins) where we were given juice... More

We had two very different experiences here (stayed one night on the way to and one night on the way from Tambopata Research Center). On the way up we were awe-struck. Its a massive lodge, immaculate, with all the comforts you'd expect of a lodge with easy access. They make it look easy in the middle of the jungle. We... More
