  • Tambopata Research Center

This intensive rainforest experience combines the remote and unique location of the Tambopata Research center, along with the more easily accessible Refugio Amazonas to create in depth exploration of tropical rainforest ecology.

Refugio Amazonas is an 18 room lodge opened in 2005. It is situated three hours from Pto. Maldonado, and provides 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. 

The Tambopata Research Center is a simple yet comfortable 18-room lodge built by Rainforest Expeditions with the object of lodging tourists and researchers while protecting the adjacent macaw clay lick.  Because of its remote location in a large-sized tract of uninhabited wilderness housing stable populations of endangered wildlife, its small size and the presence of researchers and naturalist guides, Tambopata Research Center is an excellent headquarters for in-depth explorations of Amazonian nature and wildlife.
