The Tambopata Research Center (TRC) is a comfortable 24 bedroom lodge. 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 the only one 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.

We visited this research center hoping to get away from everything and enjoy the jungle and indeed, we did! We were there several years ago before they had any hot water so I was a bit apprehensive about subjecting myself to this type of experience (being "older"). However, it

I knew we were in good hands within minutes of leaving their headquarters as they handed us a basket of amazing snacks, kindly and professionally introduced their team to us, and assured us that our bags were in the care of their porters! And their care and attention just got

My visit took place in September of 2017 but as I think my experience is still valid and may be helpful I decided to publish it. I booked a 4-day-stay at the Tambopata lodge. As the trip to the lodge takes a few hours, you have to spend the first night at the Refugio Amazonas.

3 nights stay and what an amazing experience. We were fortunately to see a jaguar sleeping on the river bank and lots, lots more. The TRC has a lot of resident scientists focussed on research so also got to learn about their work. Rooms are open on one side so expect some

June / July is dry season (summer time in the Amazon jungle) usually you can get between 35ºC to 40ºC, and as the rooms are open are very fresh. Note we have some cold front from the south arriving during dry season, and we are not able to prevent when they arrive. During this cold fronts, weather can fall till 18ºC to 20ºC

Why not go to the TRC it is fantastic! Oh and the staff will do everything they can to make your stay great. Your six year old would enjoy it too. The jungle offers a more diverse range of species and we watched a titi monkey from the dinning room as it took on a macaw it deemed to be in its tree; ahaha! So awesome. There are some hand raised Macaw's that hang around the TRC and the morning adventures to the clay lick is very exciting. The Chuncho clay lick on the way to the TRC was stunning and if nature plays ball with you you could strike it right and be very satisfied. One thing is for sure if you go with an open mind nature will delight you. We also enjoyed Refugio Amazona's and the staff have the same high standards. We saw wondrous things there too; including cheeky capuchins and wondrously strange bugs. Sleeping with one side of your bedroom open to the jungle is an experience in its self and a real privilege. Enjoy your trip.

"All the rooms provide access to the outside. A wonderful treat."
"Comfort or Suite Rooms on the elevated walkway away from the main lodge"
"All Rooms are good. The facility is completely open to the jungle although the beds have insect netting."
"Newer rooms are nicer but a long walk from the lobby."
"Deluxe suites worth the splurge."
