This is an amazing place. The cost includes transport from & to the airport to where you leave your luggage and then up river to the lodge. They wait for each flight that comes in. Food is wonderful and our guide, Ivan was the best we've ever had. All the day & night walks are included. If you go with your family ask for a 4 bedded room - it's fantastic value & all inclusive. The cold showers take some getting use to but you'll need 3 a day to cool down. I can't stress how marvellous this place is and matches the best places in Africa we've been to at a fraction of the cost. Don't be tempted to book via an agent - the price will go up - booking direct is really easy and their e-mail communication is brilliant. Be careful of the floors - they are doused with petrol at regular intervals to stop the termites eating the place - but the foors are very slippy as a result. Electric generator is put on for a few hours each day to re-charge torches and cameras.

Its location is ideal for stand alone three night experiences and for breaking the expeditions to and from Tambopata Research Center. Refugio Amazonas is built on a 200 hectare private reserve on the buffer zone of the Tambopata National Reserve. It is becoming integrated to the communities of Brazil nut extractors that surround it, attempting to extend the benefits of ecotourism to the families committed to sustainable forest use. ... more less
