Can't get enough of Tambopata, can't get enough of Rainforest Expeditions. If you're looking for a conventional vacation, try somewhere else. If you REALLY want to disconnect from city life and learn about nature in the rainforest, this is your place.

We had a wonderful experience at Tambopata Research Center. The guides are excellent, very knowledgable and helpful. The forest, river, and wildlife are truly amazing. The staff works very hard to provide visitors with a comfortable experience in a remote location.

We had a great time at try. We saw lots of wildlife and had a great guide, Johan, who was, of course, very knowledgeable. One of his many strengths was his willingness to say if he did not know the answer to a question, which was rare. We arrived as a cold front reached the jungle, so the wildlife was... More

When we booked TRC, we were very conflicted because it's a significant boat ride vs. other locations (Posada Amazonas, Refugio, Wasai Lodge, etc). We took the leap and are SO glad we did!! The wildlife here is simply AMAZING. In just a 4D/3N trip, we saw 5 different types of monkeys (including night monkeys, the only nocturnal monkey in the... More

Dear Visitor, Thanks for your nice review. When somebody is looking for a good wildlife in the SE Peruvian Amazon, TRC is the place.. As you said, a trade off has to be made to travel so deep into the rainforest, but as you also described it is totally worth the trip if somebody is willing to spend a few... More

I was astounded by the beauty of the amazon rainforest and the lodge itself. The rooms reminded me of being at a spa. Food was delicious and staff unbelievably courteous, friendly and ever so informative. We would spend the days going on hikes into the rainforest and river to look for wild life, birds and reptiles but it was never... More

Wow, what a place! We were so far in the jungle yet still had all the home comfort you could need. The rooms were lovely and once I had learnt what the noises were I really enjoyed the room being open to the wild. The guide (Patty) was excellent at educating us about the wildlife but also in the local... More

We stayed here in July and had an amazing jungle experience. We enjoyed the long "motorized canoe" ride to get there because we were seeing so many interesting sights and animals. We even saw an anaconda by the shore. We enjoyed all of the nature hikes and walks and learning a lot about the environment and wildlife from our knowledgeable... More

Beautiful lodge, lots of wildlife, excellent food , the best guide ever , thank you for everything Paula !!!!!! I can recommend everyone to go there and see really beautiful and rare animals. It's the closest thing to being in the middle of the jungle.

Our group enjoyed the remote location, open air lodging, good food and close relationship with our guide. Getting to the site takes several hours of pleasant boat travel that in our case involved minor inconvenience with an overheating motor. I trust that there will be follow up on the maintenance. Our guide was very tuned to our pace and desire... More

We spent 3 nights here and really enjoyed the place. We loved the concept of being truly outdoors everywhere you went. The mosquito nets kept away the bugs while sleeping. Our guide Leny was fantastic. She was so knowledgeable and could spot animals that we would have walked right past. We saw Squirrel Monkeys, Red Howler Monkeys, Capuchin, Tamarinds, Wild... More
