    Refugio Amazonas background information:
    The Refugio Amazonas Lodge is located on the banks of the Tambopata River, adjacent to the Tambopata National Reserve, and approximately 3 hours from the town by motorized canoe. The lodge was built using a combination of traditional native materials (wood, palm fronds, wild cane and clay) and architecture and modern day eco-lodge technology. The lodge itself consists of guest rooms, a spacious dining area and kitchen, relaxation area and internal support facilities. The 24 double bedrooms are 13 x 23 feet and can be set up with a third bed. The walls dividing each room are built using cane and clay, and extend from the floor to about 8 feet high, making each room private, however, sounds can be heard from room to room. The side that looks out to the forest does not have a wall or screening of any kind, acting as a large window facing the forest. Mosquitos are not really a problem around the lodge clearing and the open section allows for an intimate contact with the rain forest. A second small window on the opposite side, set up very high, keeps the rooms well ventilated. Twin beds are sized for Americans or Europeans (3.5' wide x 6.5' long) with mosquito nets. Each room has a private bathroom with cold water only. Rooms and bathrooms are separated by drapes.

    SPECIAL NOTE: The Andes portion of this trip is divided into day tours and depending on your departure date you may or may not be in a group consisting of different people each day. Please ask for further clarification.
