Detailed Information:

Refugio Amazonas is our new 24 bedroom lodge, opened in 2005. Its location two hours upriver from Posada Amazonas is ideal for stand alone three night experiences and for breaking the expeditions to and from Tambopata Research Center.  
Refugio Amazonas is built on a 200 hectare private reserve on the buffer zone of the Tambopata National Reserve. It is becoming integrated to the communities of Brazil nut extractors that surround it, attempting to extend the benefits of ecotourism to the families that commit to the sustainable use of the forest within this buffer zone.  
To get here you must fly to Puerto Maldonado from Lima or Cusco on daily commercial flights lasting 30 or 90 minutes respectively. From the airport you are transported by truck to the Infierno River Port where you board our boats for the three and half hour trip to Refugio Amazonas. Refugio Amazonas is located ten minutes walking from the river. 

  • REFUGIO AMAZONAS – WHO IS IT FOR? Refugio Amazonas is ideal for three night outings
  • travel to Tambopata Research Center
  • or families because: • It takes over three hours to get there from Puerto Maldonado and most of your first afternoon is spent on the river. Therefore
  • you should spend at least three nights at Refugio Amazonas to have time to fully explore the surrounding primary forest. • The extra two hours of travel time are well paid in increased possibilities to encounter wildlife (the further from Puerto Maldonado
  • the less people there are
  • the less pressure on wildlife there is). • Refugio Amazonas offers all of Posada Amazonas’ activities with one great addition: an authentic Brazil nut trail and camp. • For those traveling to Tambopata Research Center
  • it brings you two hours nearer to your final destination (see Tambopata Research Center programs). • For those traveling with children it offers the only attraction especially made for children
  • by children
  • in the Peruvian Amazon – The Children’s Rainforest Trail.
