Refugio Amazonas

With its clay-and-palm-frond construction and partnership with local families of hazel-nut harvesters, the Refugio Amazonas is an integrated part of the Peruvian rainforest. Located four hours by boat from Puerto Maldonado, in a buffer zone of the Tambopata National Reserve, the lodge puts you right in the center of nature’s diversity, and its rainforest trail for children is the only one of its kind in Peru.

The lodge consists of four wings of eight rooms each, connected by raised boardwalks. During your stay, you’ll see toucans and macaws from 100-foot canopy towers, visit working hazel-nut farms, paddle around in a catamaran, and see saddle-backed tamarins on an ethno-botanical trail. A total-immersion introduction to the beauties of the Amazon.
