Beautiful lodge in the Amazons jungle.
Amazing sound of the jungle at night (though it takes a while to get used to it)
Majestic jungle landscape.
Limited wildlife sightings, camping-like conditions, scarce privacy on the rooms.
We feel that lanterns should have been provided to facilitate the night walks. Rooms are pricey, and lanterns are a few dollars, I did not like the fact the we were obligated to purchase a cheap lantern in their store just to be able to perform the scheduled activities.
The experience with the activities depends a lot on the enthusiasm of the guides, our guide looked bored in the jungle and had limited knowledge about the flora of the area.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Refugio Amazonas is the latest addition to Rainforest Expeditions Tambopata portfolio. As a charming 32 bedroom lodge, it is well placed immediately adjacent to the Tambopata National Reserve. 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
