We stayed at the Refugio Amazonas the first and 4th night and at Tambopata research center the middle two nights. Our family highly recommends this. You see more monkeys at TRC than the Refugio. Also, the macaws are amazing. The food is the same and usually very good Peruvian style. (although I have to think the chef is off the night they make for some reason Lasagna night!) Seriously, it is a little more rustic at TRC. You can read my travel log at tabhauser.com and click Peru. Bring bug spray and thin long sleeve shirts. Bring old clothes you can leave with the staff when you are done with. This will give you less to take home and you are donating the clothes to a good place. We donated a few shirts and a pair of older teva hiking sneakers
- 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
