  • Refugio Amazonas

Refugio Amazonas is a  32 room lodge opened in 2005. It is situated four hours upriver from the Puerto Maldonado airport, giving it an excellent location for an in-depth rainforest experience,   Refugio Amazonas is built on a 200 hectare private reserve in the buffer zone of the Tambopata Nature Reserve.

It is becoming integrated into the community of Brazil Nut extractors that surround it attempting to extend the benefit of ecotourism to the families that commit to the sustainable use of the forest with-in this buffer zone. For those traveling with children, it offers the only rainforest experience for children by children in the Peruvian Amazon—the Children’s Rainforest Trail.

You'll climb a 75' canopy tour for an entirely different perspective of the forest, explore an ox-bow lake for its unique ecosystem, watch the gathering of parrots at their clay licks, visit a local community & farm, and explore an ethnobotanical trail with a local guide who will explain the various uses of the local plants. Be sure to check the special itineraries offered for the kids!
