Getting to Tambopata is an experience in and of itself but when you get there you are in for an even greater exposure to the wildlife, flora and fauna of the Amazon Rainforest. Let's be honest, getting to TRC is not easy but the guides made it interesting and educational by pointing out wildlife along the banks of the river.... More

I traveled to the Tambopata Research Center in May 2016 with a group of 27 students. The guides were knowledgeable, the service and facilities were excellent. A lot of attention to detail. The food was very good as well. The best service was at the furthest research station. The kitchen staff took such good care of us, always with a... More

We spent 2 nights here and 1 night at Refugio Amazonas. Wish we could have added an additional night. It takes a while to get to but is well worth it. TRC is smaller and being more remote you see many more animals and birds. Had an excellent guide Juan Carlos and he made our walks through the forest extremely... More

We spent 6 nights at Tambopata Research Center. It was a fantastic experience. Our room was comfortable with mosquito netted beds. You have the benefit of solar powered electrical lighting, hot water shower, and modern plumbing while being surrounded in the tropical forest with the sights & sounds of the outdoors. Hospitable staff at the lodge made our stay super... More

We travelled to TRC as part of a family holiday to Peru and Chile, from Australia. Our two nights at TRC (and first night at Refugio Amazonas as part of the same trip) was a true highlight. Our wonderful guide Pedro was knowledgeable and had a great sense of humour. Our kids aged 16, 14 and 10 loved him. The... More

This was a great trip. The accommodations and service were fabulous (with the exception our 25 yo guide taking 1/2 hour out to try hitting on a 19 yo guest from Lima, which lead to some short-term neglect, but it was pretty entertaining because he was striking out hard- sorry buddy). But honestly, our guide was fabulously knowledgable and great... More

What a wonderful spot .... the Macaws and Howler monkeys can be heard in the morning such that I referred to the Macaws as our "jungle roosters" and the howling of the monkeys sounds like wind! Food was delicious. The place is spotless; can't believe the cleaning that goes on every morning. The staff, the staff, the staff -- warm,... More

Excellent engaged staff. Wonderful food. Enjoyed learning about the macaws, the history and current situation. Going to the clay lick was a highlight and totally amazing. The trip on the river seemed both safe and enjoyable.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Tambopata Research Center (TRC) is a spartan yet comfortable 18 bedroom lodge with 8 shared bathrooms. Because of its remote location in uninhabited wilderness, housing stable populations of endangered wildlife, the small scale of its infrastructure and operations and the presence of researchers and naturalist guides, Tambopata Research Center is an excellent headquarters for in depth explorations of Amazonian nature and wildlife. It is located in a half hectare clearing in the middle of the uninhabited portion of the Tambopata National Reserve, less than a kilometer from the world's largest and most diverse macaw claylick. ... more   less
