This was a very well-run trip in a beautiful section of rainforest. Our dedicated guide was excellent and had an extraordinary ability to find and spot animals for us. Be prepared for lots of rain, humidity, heat and some sacrifices to standard comforts due to being in a very remote part of the forest, but it's all definitely worth it!... More

I went to the Tambopata Research Center in 1991 (elsewhere in the review it may say 2014 as the only required choices were 2014-15) for a few days. I was just me and a Dutch "human rights" lawyer and her archaeologist boy friend along with the staff. Pure magic. It was my first experience in the Amazon and this region... More

In January my 2 children ages 11 and 13 went on a 4 day/3 night excursion with Rainforest Expeditions. We spent the first night at Posadas Amazonas and the next 2 nights at the Tambopata Research Center. Their organization could not have been better. They met us at the airport exactly as planned and we were transported the local office.... More

When my wife and I sign up to visit TEC, we expecting to me sleeping in tents in the jungle and to be eating MREs.

Fascinating flora and fauna, well maintained trails, comfortable lodging, and a superb guide (thanks Lucho!) made this a thoroughly enjoyable introduction to Amazonia. TRC staff was attentive and accommodating...highly recommended.

Great experience. Despite being the most remote resort in the amazon the facilities were surprisingly good. As long as you don't mind a few bugs (you fortify yourself in your bed with mosquito netting at night) it's quite comfortable. Rooms are basic but neat. communal bathroom provides surprising privacy. The meals each day were absolutely delicious. The highlight obviously were... More

We stayed for 5 nights here at TRC and 2 nights at the Refugio Amazonas. We prefer the more rustic setting that TRC had to offer. We hired a private guide (Fernando CcoaQuispe) who was exceptional. we were mostly into birding, but he fulfilled more than that, as we saw Red Howler Monkey, Squirrel Monkey, Saddleback Tamarin, Brown Capuchin Monkey,...

I had looked forward to my trip to the TRC for several years having had researched many locals and lodges. It did not disappoint. I saw many things I had not seen before at other lodges including cordycepts fungi fruiting bodies sprouting from a grasshopper and actual Jaguar tracks! Every day we saw monkeys in the canopy (four different species)... More

Dear Brian, Thanks for choosing Tambopata Research Center for this great trip to the Peruvian Amazon. You selected the right place. Because of its remote location in uninhabited wilderness housing stable populations of endangered wildlife, the small scale of its infrastructure and operations and the presence of researchers and naturalist guides like Edson, Tambopata Research Center is an excellent headquarters...
