Our guide here had spent several weeks without time off and seemed a little tired! Tim the manager was very helpful and we had a nice 3 nights here. The night hike was by far the most productive for finding wildlife;several different spiders,a tarantula which I believe was a "chicken spider",along with her babies,green mountain frog,a couple of small snakes,and...

I had done a ton of research before my friends and I went to the TRC. We knew we wanted to go far into the rainforest (so not one of the lodges reachable in 2-3 hrs by boat). From the Puerto Maldonado area, that basically led us to choosing between the TRC, or the Heath River Wildlife Center. We spent... More

If you are traveling to Peruvian Amazon this is the place to visit. The lodge is well-kept, food is great, the cocktails at the bar are great. The staff is friendly and our guide was very knowledgeable. This was a truly unique experience.

What a great experience our group of 5 had on our recent visit to Tambopata Research Center. The wild life experience was exceptional- Monkeys, Birds, Spiders, Snakes - OH NO !!!! Our guide Pedro was so knowledgeable about the jungle. He pointed out so many different species of plants and trees to us and had incredible knowledge concerning all these... More

TRC is rated #1 in the Tambopata National Reserve. However, we did not have a #1 experience. Yes, we realized that there was a 6 hour boat ride to get there and that the bathrooms were down the hall. People wrote encouraging posts that they saw animals on the boat ride. That must be on the rare occasion. Luckily for... More

This was a real highlight of our South America trip. The accommodation was outstanding and unique. The food was great. All the staff were exceptional and all of the animals spectacular. Fabulous snapshot of the rainforest and an insight into jungle life research. Thoroughly recommended.

Dear Guests, Thanks for coming to TRC! It is indeed a special place worth to visit. Rich in wildlife and as you also mentioned you can have a first hand insight into real scientific research in the research station. Hope that you can visit TRC again in the future. More

This lodge is truly one of a kind. I had planned our trip with the goal of visiting a remote area of the Amazon, and Tambopata Reserach Center was perfect. We were able to see many birds and monkeys, and all of the staff were extremely knowledgable and friendly. The food was so wuch better than expected too. Thank you... More

Wow! This place was amazing. You can't get closer to nature. We enjoyed the 5 night/4 days, and I'd recommend it because if it rains (and it will), you might not get to hike the rainforest or see macaws. First, the reality: it is wet, muddy, hot, and outdoors for the entire time. You need proper clothing, mosquito repellant always,... More
