September is the hottest month of the year in the Tambopata province. If visiting in September you are going to be sweating your butt off so be mentally prepared for this before you travel! Take long sleeves and lots of bug spray with a DEET content of 40% or greater no matter what time of the year you visit. Why... More

We stayed at the Tambopata Research Centre while on a South American holiday. Our experience is one we will remember for a lifetime. Our guide Jamie met us at the airport upon arrival and escorted us for the entire time of our visit to the centre. We stayed at Refugio Amazonas for the first night and then travelled some 4.5...

From the pick-up in Puerto Maldonado to the return journey I could not have asked for a greater adventure. Puerto Maldonado itself is worth an overnight stay. It is an edgy Amazon port city with plenty of nightlife. Anyway the tour started off eventfully with a broken down outboard at the departure docks. It took a few hours to get... More

Excellent experience with excellent staff and tour guide. Tons of educational opportunity. It was great to be outdoors and see all that nature has to offer. The boat rides were also very fun. The staff went out of their way to make sure that we were all comfortable.

I saw over 250 species of birds, 6 species of monkeys, 2 Brazilian tapirs, a short-eared bush dog, and had a close but not too close encounter with a Bushmaster. I also observed lots of other rainforest residents including poison dart frogs, butterflies and a tremendous variety of plants and fungi. It was a wonderful experience led by two knowledgeable...

TRC is an excellent choice if you are looking for a rural experience and being close to nature, which we were. While it's amazing to hear the jungle sounds from your room at night, it's less amazing that the same open nature of the rooms means that you can't sleep at all for two nights when other travelers keep you...

I enjoy nature. If you do too, then this is the ideal place to see the rainforest. I have taken 3 trips to rainforest areas and while they were all very good, I think I would rate this place the best. You get 2 or 3 hikes or activities per day with a guide who is assigned to you and... More

Rainforest E, Guest Relations Manager at Tambopata Research Center, responded to this review

Dear Visitor, Thanks for your review of TRC from a naturalist point of view. We also recommend our guest to spend at least 3 nights at TRC as there are so many things to see and do and sometimes weather is quite unpredictable, especially in the rainy season. Rooms are indeed smaller than in Refugio and we can only provide... More

We really enjoyed our time at Tambopata. The trip up river was interesting and well worth the effort getting deeper into the jungle . The lodge was very open and airy, clean and comfortable. We had no issue with the bathroom facilities. The food was great and the staff really friendly and helpful. The jungle treks were really interesting and... More
