We had a wonderful time at TRC. The accommodations were lovely -- much more comfortable than we had expected! We had an ensuite bathroom at Refugio Amazonas, but shared bathroom facilities at TRC. Those shared facilities were always kept clean, as was the rest of the facility. We loved the "open walls" that allowed us to sleep with the sounds... More

TRC is located in the most remote place in the Tambopata National Reserve. The wildlife experience has been amazing, fantastic. The lodge is confortable, well maintained. The staff are always attentive to every detail. It completely exceeded my expectations. Thank you very much !!!!

I loved it. Completely worth the trip up the river (actually, the trip was one of the coolest parts - we saw an anaconda and THREE capybara(s?) on the way up). My family was only there for four nights or so, but it helped me face my fears of being out/under trees in the dark; in fact, the night hike... More

Tambopata Research Center (TRC) is the more remote lodge you can book with Rainforest Expeditions. It takes a bit longer to get to but if you have the time it's definitely worth booking a TRC tour as there's a better chance to see more wildlife in the deeper jungle area. Lodging facilities here are simple and more dormitory like but... More

Thank you for such a detailed review of Tambopata Research Center. It provides a very good first hand experience and a great idea to other travellers on what to expect. We would only like to add that visitors can also expect to see hundreds of parrots and macaws at the world-famous clay lick of TRC. On most mornings dozens of... More

Loved every minute of our trip to the Tambopata Research Centre with Rainforest Expeditions. It was well worth the extra time travelling further up river, but the river trip, especially at low water, is quite exciting ! The wildlife sightings were amazing and lots of them, both large mammals and smaller critters such as stick insects, tarantulas, frogs, butterflies, birds... More

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
