My husband and I are traveling to the Tambopata in May. It seems we've narrowed our choice of accomodations down to Libertador Amazonas or Refugio Amazonas. However, we are trying to blance a number of needs/likes.
For example, my 66-year old mother is not too keen on the open wall concept of the Refugio Amazonas, but we like the idea that it holds a smaller number of guests than Libertador. We want the opportunity to see otters in a lake (kayak or canoeing is fine) and birds at a clay lick, but my parents aren't able to camp out.
Can anyone provide insight to which of these lodges provides "it all", at least as we've defined it? I would say our priorities are: comfort for folks in their late 60's (healthy and fit but camping is a stretch), opportunity for wildlife sightings, and low density guests. Oh and your experiences with only 3 walls would be most welcome! Thanks.
