We absolutely loved our experience at Refugio starting with our guide, Fabrizio, who was so knowledgable, and so much fun. Even though most of the Macaws had migrated during our stay, Fabrizio made it his mission to find some for our group, and he did not disappoint. We actually saw five & were thrilled! I can not tell you how... More

The Lodge is a great experience, listening to the sounds of the jungle overnight, and staying in the open air rooms. The food is excellent, and the staff very helpful. Our guide Marco was excellent, he really knew his stuff, and was enthusiastic, informative, and a great guide to be with with. The highlight was definitely an evening boat trip... More

Overall, we had a wonderful stay at Refugio Amazonas. I have some mixed opinions and mostly, I think it's just important to recognize what you are signing up for. The rooms are totally open-air, meaning that there are no screens so you are totally open to the jungle. We had a possum sleeping on our toilet seat one night, animal... More

The service is friendly, efficient and extremely well organized. Guides are well informed. Very eco friendly lodge with hot showers, extended power for wifi and lighting. One's bags are taken to/from the boat and lodge. Food wonderful and fresh. Whilst a bit far up river into the jungle it also has some excellent bird clay licks. Great selection of optional... More

We had a wonderful stay at Refugio. We were there the nights. The lodge is beautiful. The food was very fresh and very good. The staff was friendly and helpful. Special kudos to our guide, Jakson, who was knowledgeable, fun and answered a ton of questions for us. While the lodge is gorgeous, this is not a place for folks... More

I had an absolutely AMAZING time. Great service, well organized, very eco friendly, and positive vibes all around. Came here for the 3D/2N tour with my friends. Loved the decor and overall set up of the lodge. Rooms are open and thus sleeping to jungle sounds was relaxing, especially on our last night when it rained. Every staff member was... More

My family had a great stay at Refugio. It is hard to imagine that they can build such nice lodge deep in the jungle. It is not a city hotel for sure, I was even surprised that the wifi is decent at such location. I had some concerns about the open living spaces before since my kids are prone to... More

I spent 4 days and 3 nights in Refugio Amazonas and it was an amazing experience. Our guide, Edison, was very knowledgeable and quite good at spotting wildlife. We saw and learned about a variety of birds, mammals, insect and plant. The room I stayed in was spacious and comfortable. One side of the room was open to the nature... More

Refugio Amazonas is a beautiful and prettily located building, the staff is professional and the guides knowledgeable. The food was also very good - not a lot of choice, but really tasty. The problem is we were so cold we could not enjoy the experience at all. We visited at the beginning of September, (dry season) so it should have... More

Wonderful place, welcoming attentive staff with a good sense of humour, knowledgeable and kind. The food was amazing, perfect environment, the room spotlessly clean and wonderful windowless window. The wildlife wonderful, hearing the howler monkeys from our room was memorable.
