We stayed at Refugio for one night on the way to The Tambopata Research Centre (reviewed separately). After arriving at Puerto Maldonado you are taken by bus to the office and departure area. Here you are given a short time to re-organise your packing if needed and confirm flight departure times. It is all very well organised. From there it... More

We spent 3 days here and loved every second of it. The main building and the rooms were beautiful. As others have said - NO privacy! There were other groups of tourists there at the same time as us and they were very grouchy. If you come here, you must understand, you are in the AMAZON. There is heat, there... More

Spent one night here on our way to Tambopata Research Center. Both lodges are beautiful and extremely well run. Our guide Juan Carlos was excellent and we spotted a lot of animals and birds. He gave us a great understanding of the local culture and environment. Food was very good at both lodges. Enjoyed going up to the canopy tower... More

This was my first Eco Lodge, Amazonian experience and I was not disappointed. From beginning to end, I felt like I was in the hands of knowledgeable, caring and professional people. The staff work very hard to make the stay pleasurable. It is the jungle, and it is an eco lodge, so be prepared to mingle with a bit of... More

I highly recommend Refugio. The guides were amazing, the facility fantastic and the food was decent. The bartenders were rude and don't believe the manager, Jazz, when he says they have 110 and 220 and no converters were necessary. My husband blew up his C-Pap the first night there. Rest of the vacation was dicey for him as he didn't... More

We spent 3 nights here and from the moment we arrived, we felt welcomed, comfortable, safe & excited for our upcoming adventures into an amazing rainforest. Our guide Fernando was watchful over our interests, wellbeing & safety, whilst always respecting the wildlife, habitats & rainforest as an absolute priority, with minimal impact by tourism- this was reassuring to say the...

We loved Refugio Amazons. There is a beautiful main building and then sleeping areas are reached via a bridge on either side of the building. As others have indicated there is little privacy between rooms as the walls don't go up to the ceiling, and many rooms are separated from the hall by only a curtain. However, if you know... More

Amazing experience. We can't wait to go back! The staff was amazing. The lodge was incredible. The food was fantastic. I absolutely love it here. Beds were comfortable. It was the perfect end to an epic trip that included hiking the Inca Trail. We will come back to Peru just to visit here again.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Refugio Amazonas is the latest addition to Rainforest Expeditions Tambopata portfolio. As a charming 32 bedroom lodge, it is well placed immediately adjacent to the Tambopata National Reserve. Its location is ideal for stand alone three night experiences and for breaking the expeditions to and from Tambopata Research Center. Refugio Amazonas is built on a 200 hectare private reserve on the buffer zone of the Tambopata National Reserve. It is becoming integrated to the communities of Brazil nut extractors that surround it, attempting to extend the benefits of ecotourism to the families committed to sustainable forest use. ... more   less
