Harmless but very... More

Beautiful lodge. Loved being out in nature and hearing the animal sounds while sleeping. The food was great. Take your camera everywhere because there are birds and animals everywhere!! I recommend walking around with socks on and don't forget your bug spray!

We are in our mid 70's and went to Tambopata to see the macaws and parrots at the famous clay lick nearby. We saw four species of macaws, five species of monkeys and many other mammals and birds only seen in this remote area thanks to our great local guide. Some of the hiking in the jungle, walking over rocks... More

When I meditate I always picture myself on the white beds under the mosquito net listening to the sound of the rain and surrounded by green. Total peace. Little known fact: the rainy season is ten times better to visit. I have done both and when it's wet, everything glistens, there are more fruit, more flowers, more baby animals and... More

After 1 night at the Refugio Amazonas it was a 4 hour boat journey to the Tambopata Research Center where I would be staying here for 5 nights. What an experience and I'm glad I didn't plan a shorter stay. After the boat arrived it was up a trail and some stairs cut into the cliff to a path through... More

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
