The Lodge and Amenities


Refugio Amazonas is a 32-bedroom lodge four hours from the Puerto Maldonado airport. It is ideal for soft adventurers and families, and has a rainforest trail designed especially for children, the only one in the Peruvian Amazon. Refugio Amazonas is located in a 200-hectare private reserve within the buffer zone of the Tambopata National Reserve. Rainforest Expeditions is partnering with local families, who sustainably harvest Brazil nuts from the surrounding rainforest, to ensure that they share in the benefits of ecotourism.

The property is an open-air lodge built from traditional materials such as wood, palm fronds and clay. The dining room is a huge open building with a loft on the second story for an eye level view of the surrounding rainforest canopy. We provide self-serve three course meals at Refugio Amazonas. Meals consist of soup or appetizers, salad, main course, and desserts combining Peruvian and international cuisine. All fresh fruits and salads are thoroughly disinfected before serving. We also provide at all times unlimited amounts of boiled, filtered, cooled drinking water, coffee or tea and we provide fruit juices during the meals. Electricity and internet are available only in the common areas of the lodge. A 110V generator is turned on once a day to recharge batteries for guests or lodge facilities. At night it is very dark, so we recommend good flashlights.


The Rooms


The lodge has four wings of 8 rooms connected by raised boardwalks. Each room comes equipped with a private bathroom, and a common area for dining and socializing. Bedrooms are separated from one another by light cane fencing. Rooms are private but not soundproof. Rooms overlooking tropical rainforest allow guests to enjoy this unique ecosystem, even during their down time. Wild monkeys and birds are often visible from our signature windowless verandah, which also provides excellent ventilation.

The rooms are built with local materials such as wood, bamboo, adobe mud and palm trees. Rooms are double or triples, as requested. Each bed is equipped with its own mosquito net, en suite spacious private bathroom with hot water, clothes hangers and numerous kerosene lamps and candles provide the lighting. Each visitor has access to a personal safe-deposit box, an umbrella for rain and a special set of eco-friendly amenities.
