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 Anne, thanks for sharing your experience. Yes, Tambopata is one of the most biodiverse places on the planet and you don't need to go many hours inside the forest to find amazing wildlife

This is a great holiday resort with friendly staff and great accommodation. Good food and drinks. The jungle tours was amazing and we saw lots of birds and even a tarantula spider. Monkeys were running around the resort. All in all a great experience.

Dear guest, Thanks for sharing your experience, did you know that Refugio Amazonas is in the middle of a Brazilian Nut forest? this forest is the main source of many animals including birds and mammals. When the lodge arrives in the area it was impossible to see any wildlife, main reason is that it used to be a brazil nut camp center for harvesting, who used wildlife as the main source of food too. So the place is still used for locals to collect the nuts but now they don't need to hunt as we provide them with food. Little by little the wildlife have found a safe place to live again.

Refugio Amazonas is a must if you are visiting this part of Peru. The lodge is fantastica and the open rooms to the forrest is extraordinary. You will have to work hard to se birds and animals but the guides/rangers are really good and will help you spot the animals and get good pictures maybe though their binocular lens.

Of the two weeks we spent in Peru, the three nights in the Refugio were easily the best. We totally loved the location, the open side to the jungle, the style and quality of the accommodation, the helpfulness of the staff and the food was great too, though don't expect the impossible. The forest guides were totally awesome.

Dear guest, we are really proud of our guides. Do you know that they take 2 weeks every year for their guides course? they not only learn about wildlife, but they do also learn about the national protected areas around, the scientific projects and how to make your stays memorable. For us, they are the very best in the area :)

The whole experience was amazing. The open air bedroom & bathroom gave a marvellous true 'outdoor' feel. The buffet food was delicious & varied to suit all tastes. The guides were knowledgeable, friendly, & helpful. Every night of our stay we joined the night walk & saw numerous insects, moths, bats & a sloth. The daytime activities were also amazing. The trip to the clay lick to see the macaws was definitely unmissable.

Dear guest, my favorite activity is the macaw clay lick, a party of colors!! Walking by night also is amazing, did you notice there was a completely different orchestra during the nighttime? I'm sure you will never forget Tambopata in Peru.
