After searching on the internet for a while we decided to book at the Refugio Amazonas. Best decision ever. Our guide Mariona was very good ( actually he was the best guide we had in Peru) from the moment he picked us up from the airport , he started telling us about the Amazones. Until the end of our tour... More

I stayed here for 4 nights on a girls only friends trip and loved it!! I secretly wanted to steal the hotel managers job and just move in and live there. :) It was far more luxurious than I expected for being a lodge in the middle of the rainforest. Had lots of amenities, from massages and a gift shop... More

WOW is all I can say. From getting off the plane to travelling to the first check point was exciting and totally professional. The experience is a once in a lifetime adventure. From the boat ride to seeing the retreat for the first time was magical. We had our own personal guide who we adored. Money's, MacCalls, piranhas, tarantula's, scorpions... More

We stayed 3 nights at Refugio Amazonas and it was excellent. The lodge is a unique experience and the clay lick excursion is something very special. Our guide (Imperatriz) was excellent and very friendly. The food was also good. A nice place in the jungle.

The most wonderful experience with knowledgeable guides, superb food and the close proximity of animals and beautiful plants. I will remember it forever. The lodge was clean and comfortable with plenty of hot water, it was far better than we had expected.

Refugio Amazonas is probably the most awesome lodging we have ever experienced. We were greeted at the tiny Puerto Maldonado airport by our guide Luis. He would be our guide for the next 3 days. What an adventure! We were taken to our motorized canoe for an exhilarating ride 2/12 hours up the Tambopata river. We enjoyed a tasty lunch... More

Excellent lodge. Lots of wildlife. Boris was the guide and he was excellent! The food was really good. Canoeing on the oxbow lake was very interesting. We even saw a Harpy eagle which is rare. Rooms are comfortable.

A three hour boat trip upstream feels like an excursion in itself, where we spotted so many different creatures. Be aware that the 120+ steps up from the river could be problematic to some, but take them at your own pace and you'll be fine - why hurry! After a 20 minute hike into the jungle, the lodge appears majestically... More

A long boatride up the river takes you along the shores where we saw caiman and capybara, toucans and parrots. A hike into the jungle takes you to Refugio Amazonas. There are excursions every day. You can do all of them or none of them. Food was excellent and the bar was open nightly.

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
