This Lodge is truly a treasure. We were greeted, after a long humid boat ride, with smiling staff offering us cold wash cloths and a refreshing fruit drink. The whole lodge is open air and the lobby area is cozy and lovely. Our rooms were large and cozy. My favorite part of the room was the hammock - if it...

So our family, I, wife and two kids (20 and 16) spent four nights here between Christmas and New Year’s. We were met at the airport by our guide and a driver. The guide arranged for a porter to grab our luggage and then it was a quick 5 minute bus ride to the office. After a quick briefing and...

Expect noises and eyes in the night that add to the overall adventure: Invest in good appropriate clothing hat and foot ware, mossy proof (Craghoppers) More comfortable: Go on the evening exploration, an eye opener: Guides excellent: Try to check in your flight, even when on the move, as they over book the planes and sell your seat even when...

We stayed here for 5 nights in January 2017 and had a fantastic time. We did many activities - the Macaw Clay Lick, a night walk, stand up paddle boarding, mountain biking and visited a local farm. Our guide, Jhordy, was really great. He shared his knowledge of the jungle freely and made sure that we were enjoying our time...

Lovely stay here. The room provides a very unique jungle-like experience especially because of the open concept and refugio amazon really makes you feel at home. This was our first time in the amazon and we had a great time here. Highly recommend this place.

Other reviews explain the open rooms so i won't repeat it however i will say it did take a little getting used to. The fact that you have virtually no personal security can be a little daunting. There is an in-room safe for your passport and valuables but there's only a curtain over the entrance to your room. Noise transference...

This place is fantastic and is a great introduction to the Amazon. The guides are passionate about the ecosystem and are very knowledgeable (we had Temo, 10 out of 10). The food was just ok but the location and willingness of staff made up for the limited menu. Great place for children (say 8+ ideally) its hot and humid and...

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
