Refugio Amazonas is 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 into the communities of Brazil nut extractors that surround it, attempting to extend the benefits of ecotourism to the families committed to sustainable forest use. At Refugio Amazonas, all our guest can choose from a wide variety of excursions and activities including soft adventure, nature hikes and cool science.

Dear Guest, Thank you for sharing your detailed review about your stay at Refugio Amazonas. We are glad to read that you enjoyed most of your activities and accommodations except for the stairway at the entrance - the lodge is located in a terra firme forest to avoid floodings- which as you mentioned you can take it at your own pace. Happy to read that you had a good birding experience led by Jair. Best wishes, The Rainforest Expeditions Team
