I was dreading this experience – but it changed me so positively and I am no longer scared of spiders. YES we were sweating constantly but you do get use to it - 83% humidity Yes this is miles away – but if want to one of the smallest lodges available then this place is for you. Eighteen rooms in...

We have just returned from Peru and at the end of our trip we spent 4 days at Tambopata Research Center. I found this lodge on tripadvisor and I can say it was exactly that wonderful place how people were describing it. In the middle of nature a lovely lodge with a wonderful atmosphere and a bit of comfort. Hot... More

My husband and I enjoyed the TRC so much during a visit in 2012, that we returned in 2015 for 9 days. We also spent a few extra days at the other Rainforest Expedition lodges Refugio and Amazonas and were in the jungle for 2 weeks. Our guide Fernando had the most amazing knowledge of the flora and fauna, and... More

I had always dreamed of living in the amazon rainforest... Thanks to TRC it made my dream come true... The rainforest is truly an amazing place. The rooms were quite basic without electricity, but I do respect that as it would be eco friendly. There was a storm on one of the days there, so we had to cancel our... More

deep in the Tambopata reserve, near Collpa clay lick, lots of macaws and some howler monkeys around. some regular macaw visitors will come for breakfast with you. and fly into you room, create a crime scene if you had food in your room!!! The food was amazingly delicious, they've got some magic in the kitchen no power after 21:00, light... More

We are frequent family travelers and have had the pleasure to enjoy trips in Latin America, North America and Europe. As part of a 2.5 week overland trip across southern and central Peru this year, I traveled with my wife and daughters in March/April and went to Refugio and then on to TRC. The best description that comes to mind... More

Everything at the center is so professionally run. The accommodation is basic (as one would expect in such an eco environment) but beds are comfortable and the shared facilities always clean. Mosquito nets are provided as windows are open to the jungle (amazing sounds at daybreak.) The guides are exceptionally knowledgeable and the walks fantastic as there were many sightings... More

Our visit to the Tambopata station was exceptional. We didn't know what to expect with this leg of our Peru experience but looking back it was one of the highlights. The research station is rustic and that is what we were looking for. The researchers and guides were excellent and the field trips although hot and humid were once in... More

Everything about our stay was great. We traveled with two teenagers who were as excited to be there as we were. (If you have or know teenagers, you know that this response is unusual in the extreme.) Even starting at the crack of dawn each day didn't put a damper on their enthusiasm. It was that good. We stayed for... More

Well organized short trip into the jungle. Service of guides and stuff was absolutely good. The Tambopata Research Center was a really nice location and gives you some sort of adventurous feeling, but still provides you with hotel comfort at this remote place deep in the rainforest. We could see a lot of macaws and even a jaguar crossing the... More
