The 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.
Because it takes a half-day to travel from Puerto Maldonado to Refugio Amazonas, we recommend visitors spend three nights to make their trip worthwhile.
Travelers to the Tambopata Research Center also can stop off at the Refugio on the way to and from the TRC.
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.
