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.

As so many have said before us. A great place to stay. Our guide Timateo was brilliant. The food is good and the whole indoors/outdoors experience of the lodge is wonderful. The manager who greets you obviously cares about his job and works hard to make your stay wonderful.

Very punctual and professional staff and guide. We enjoyed our visit a lot and felt we saw a good bit of wildlife during our short stay. The lodge was gorgeous and the food was delicious. It was beyond our expectations.

The place is uncomfortable to stay in the hot season as it has no fans. Humidity is very high in the forest and you need 4 showers in a day.The food for vegetarians is limited. The guides are extremely friendly and knowledgeable. Morning activities start early. Was unlucky with mosquitos.

Our guides Raul, Saul, and Soledad were extremely personable and their knowledge of the rainforest amazing! They pointed out many animals including: a juvenile Harpy Eagle, piranha, capybaras, cayman, macaws, and monkeys to name a fewt We were a group of 16 seasoned travelers and agreed that the days spent with our guides and staying at Refugio Amazonas were a...

My family (2 adults and 2 kids) have just returned from a month in Peru, which included 3 nights at Refugio Amazonas. The Refugio is a truly magical place and was even more special by our fantastic guide, Saul. His enthusiasm and love for the Amazon was infectious and he could not have been more generous with his knowledge and... More

The lodge was an amazing experience. Completely open to the rainforest and animals. Very relaxing. Three great meals a day which were much appreciated after trekking through the rainforest. The rooms have no exterior walls but are completely private. We felt we were sleeping in the wild.
