Our experience was amazing! This was an experience that I have always dreamed about. The guides for the excursions were the best. They were so knowledgeable and friendly. I will never forget all the beautiful sounds that you wake up to in the rainforest. The lodge was very eco friendly and the rooms were very clean. The rooms only have three walls so it is normal to find an insect here and there. I will definitely be returning.

Refugio Amazonas is well organized by Rainforest Expedition, all transportation, meals and activities arranged thoughtfully, all staff and guides are friendly and attentive. It's beautifully designed and integrated with its rainforest surrounding. You get the full rainforest experience, falling asleep to the the sound of rain at night, being woken up by birds' singing in the morning, being taken to explore the jungle or river, and being pampered with healthy meals in the between. The food is good, well presented in buffet style, not a big selection as it's deep in the Amazon, but very fresh and tasty, always ended with excellent desert; a different menu is served everyday, and the menu and recipes are on display for anyone who is interested in. We were very "lucky" to get the true RAINforest experience as it had been raining heavily during our entire 3 day stay, which is not unexpected. Somehow starting from the 2nd day the temperature dropped to as low as 15C(according to our guide it's caused by the cold current from Patagonia during the transition from raining season to dry season), which caught us completely off guard. Being wet and cold, we put on all our clothings, still felt freezing, the staff quickly came to rescue giving everyone hot water bags and extra blankets to keep warm. Our guide arranged our group to go see macaw clay lick in Chuncho on the 3rd day. We left at 5am in heavy rain, took 4 hour round trip boat ride with the gusty wind, waited for more than 1 h

Once in a lifetime experience
Would go there again in a minute. The guides, staff, itinerary was amazing. Just remember you are in the middle of nowhere so internet can be spotty, electricity is on during certain hours but worth it

Amazing stay, Refugio Amazonas is a beautiful lodge - you're guaranteed to have a wonderful time! The rooms are spacious and well presented, comfortable and airy as they are open to the rainforest. The lodge is very well run from collection at the airport to the time you leave - the manager Carlos has it running like clockwork. The guides are absolutely fantastic too, and each group will have someone dedicated to them for the duration of their stay - my wife and I had Boris who was brilliant and he made our stay an unforgettable experience.
