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

We spent 3 or 4 nights at Tambopata Research Center in May 2015. If you are looking for something like a Four Seasons resort (we weren't), then this isn't for you. But if you are happy with small, but clean, rooms, shared (and frequently cleaned) bathrooms, delicious food and energetic and knowledgeable guides (ours was Listen and he was great)... More

Lots of wildlife, great guide (Fernando), and good food. You're in nature, so if you don't like noises in the night or getting sweaty, stay in Lima! We had a great time - you'll probably never see more macaws in the wild or more unmolested jungle. As others have said, there's a lot of time on boats, but its a... More

TRC was fantastic, and Lesten, our guide, was friendly, knowledgeable, and passionate about the jungle and all of its inhabitants. The food was awesome, the rooms were comfortable (best bed I had in my month in Peru), the water for the showers was hot and plentiful, and the bathrooms were great. I mention the bathrooms specifically because when I read... More

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.
