Our 5 days here was amazing. We were treated so well, our guide was absolutely fantastic, the staff were welcoming and helpful, and we also thought that the food was particularly delicious. We saw a lot of wildlife, and our guide knew everything about all of the animals and plants in the rainforest. The only thing that we wanted to... 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

Our family of 4 took the 4d/3n expedition: 1 night at Refugio Amazonas and 2 nights at the Tambopata Research Center. We enjoyed everything about the trip: the boat rides up & back, both of the beautiful lodges, the tasty abundant food, our excellent dedicated guide who was so expert at spying obscure wildlife, and all of our outings into...

Fantastic experience, this was an excellent place to see/learn about the jungle. Accommodation was basic but comfortable and clean. Rooms open to jungle so feels a bit like luxury camping. Food delicious and staff friendly and helpful. Our guide Paul, and Soledad, who was training, were excellent. Saw plenty of wildlife and the guides were very knowledgeable . Very well... More

You will have a fantastic time at any of the lodges but it is definitely worth the extra trek to visit the Tembopata Research Centre. It's magical and being so close to all that nature is such a great experience. You are well looked after by knowledgeable guides and friendly, efficient staff. Up early at Amazonas you will climb the... More

This is primarily a research station with 18 rooms with one wall missing so you can watch the rain forest. Nothing ensuite so its a walk to the shared showers and loos. Not so easy at night when the power is off so a head torch is essential. But there are rain Showers and plenty of hot water. Recharging batteries... More

This is a long long journey into the jungle from the base at Puerto Maldonado, but as the most remote of the places to stay it probably offers the most to see. No en suite, so getting up in the middle of the night for the loo is a dark walk by torchlight to the sound of snoring and other... More

I had a great stay at TRC in late May 2016. The facilities are very well maintained, rooms have adequate space, there is hot water for showers, and the food was excellent. Another nice feature is that electricity and wifi are available at various times throughout the day to take care of any internet or device charging needs. I was... More

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

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
