4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

My wife and I have traveled to Peru for many years. We enjoy seeing new things and thought the rain forest would be a new adventure. What we failed to realize is that we like, but do not love, staring at exotic animals and plants for hours. This review is as much about choosing the correct vacation as it is... More

This was our first eco tour and it did not disappoint! Everything was wonderful, from the boat ride in, the food, our room and even the fresh made tropical cocktails served at night. Our guide Frank was very knowledgeable of the area and the plants and animals. I would definitely recommend this lodge to anyone interested in seeing the Peru... More

Our first trip ever to a rain forest in Peru was beautiful and amazing. The offices and meeting place was just outside the airport. We had a guided bus ride and then a guided 3 hour boat ride to the property It was an open air gorgeous facility. We joined others in forest hikes and nature treks and a night... More

We had no expectations for our stay at Refugio Amazonas. (To be honest our minds were trying to prepare for the Inca Trail the following week). My wife and I traveled with group of 15, and everyone had an amazing time. The accommodation was beyond what we could have expected for a stay in the Amazon. The amazon is hot... More

This place was awesome! From the very start when the provide you with a snack on the bus ride there to the cold towels waiting for you after each excursion. They leave no stone unturned and truly go above and beyong in service. Our guide was Moises, and he simply was the best! Informative, affable and all around great person.... More

We enjoyed our 4D/3N here. The resort is very nice, service great and food is good though on the bland side. Our superior room was excellent. The resort is located in a very rugged part of the Amazon. Our guide was excellent. Be prepared for long walks/hikes in the the jungle. But there are a couple of things that caused... More

Refugio is a justifiably top rated destination whose virtues have been adequately covered by other reviewers. Very recently Refugio built what they refer to as an "Amazon Villa" on their property. This review covers our recent six day stay in the Amazon Villa. The Amazon Villa is a recently constructed large residence located in a clearing a ten minute walk... More

A group of 8 of us did 4D/3N here and had a great time. Accommodation was very comfortable and arriving at night walking up to the main building was just sensational. Be aware that in terms of acoustic privacy this is akin to camping. The rooms have no windows, no ceilings (but a very high roof) and paper thin walls... More

What a fantastic stay in Refugio Amazonas. Rooms are open plan but do have mosquito nets to protect you from bugs etc.You feel and hear everything that goes on in the forest as well as adjoining rooms. The amazing thunder storm at 2.00am was particularly exciting with so much rain and falling trees in the forest, it kept us awake... More
