A great stay for my family of 4. Food and accommodations were great, but not as great as hosts, guides, and opportunity to experience rain forest environment - and Macaw Clay lick - first hand. Hope to return ASAP!

The Tambopata Research Center is a terrific place to stay for a few days and get immersed in the true Amazon basin experience. The Center itself is a mixture of the remote (there seemed to be no traces of civilization anywhere near us), the rustic (open air rooms, short walks to shared bath facilities, etc.) and the pampered (GREAT food,...

Our family of four (daughters ages 11 and 13) had an amazing time at Tambopata Research Center. We did the 4N/5D package with one night at Refugios (which was lovely for the 12 hours we were there). Luis C., our guide, was amazing. His knowledge and ability to spot animals in the wild (like baby caiman in the dark) was... More

Great find in the Amazon jungle! We just got back from 21 days in Peru...TRC was the icing on the cake! as others have mentioned, we were pleased to find the bathrooms are totally private, not a long wait if at all to use them. The showers had plenty of hot water, but it was so hot outside cold water... More

Tambopata is an excellent lodge deep in the Madre de Dios river complex. There are very few steps to access it which is much better than some lodges. The living quarters are minimal but sufficient and the food was good. The best part was our guide (Esau) who knew everything about the jungle and the macaws that came visiting every... More

Spent three days at TRC - what an experience. Remote is an understatement - the center is 2 hrs upstream past the final checkpoint into the reserve - no human civilization for hundreds of miles, just you and about 25 other lucky travellers and scientists who get to stay there. Our guide Luis was absolutely amazing - knowing every species... More

This jungle retreat is not a hotel, but if you want to get real close to nature and stay in simple, but well functioning facilities, this is the place. Great guides, good food and nature coming to visit you in your room. A wonderful and memorable experience. Rainforest Expeditions (www.Peru.nature.com) organised everything perfectly - highly recommended.

Loved T.R.C Friendly staff, and super walks in the rainforest. Our guide Oscar was very knowledgeable- we learnt a lot, and saw lots of interesting plants and animals. Food very good too. Would love to go back there again-a definite highlight of our visit to Peru.

This is my 2nd review of our 5D/4N deep rainforest experience - wrote one for Refugio Amazonas. FYI: if you don't like wild life, insects, mud, you get irritated that animals don't show up for your pleasure as they do at a caged zoo, you don't like the humidity - then stay in the comfort of your North American/European home...

We had a great time at Tambopata. The food was great and the staff first rate. Our guide was Marleen and she was the bomb! She was an excellent guide and could spot any particular bird a half mile away by sound, then looking for it with her scope. Accommodations we great for being in the middle of the rain... More
