It is in such a bad state that it is dangerous. One of the catwalks was broken and you can no longer access the last hut, nobody knows what the next catwalk will be in breaking but I know they were not fixing anything. They...More

Strange report. Yes, the end part of our walkway was closed off due to weather damage; no reason for him to be in that area. If there is a medical emergency we radio in for helicopter evacuation (takes 30-minutes), not take someone on a 6+...More
My husband and I looked at quite a few places in Iquitos before booking our trip but didn't find the other companies and tour guides to be as open, honest and genuine as the people at Amazon Refuge which made us decide to book with...More
Great place to experience the proper jungle! About 5hours from Iquitos by boat, away from the cut down jungle around Iquitos :) We got picked up from the harbour by Sandro, cause we met a friend of him on the boat to Iquitos and we...More

Thanks for your review. The wildlife around Amazon Refuge is superior to any areas closer to Iquitos. You have to be up for a 5-6 hour trip to get there and back but it is well worth the effort as you pointed out. The food...More
I did a lot of research before deciding on a tour operator and it still didn't prepare me for my trip. I had a great time and the place was amazing. But firstly a few things... If you don't like camping, hate bugs, frogs or...More

Many thanks for your in depth review. It is great that you pointed out the need to be prepared for the inconveniences as well as the spectacular majesty of the jungle. Many lodges closer to Iquitos offer more of an eco-light experience which for many...More
Amazon Refuge is a remote eco-lodge with unsurpassed variety and abundance of wildlife. We have kayaks, dugout canoes and motorized canoes for exploring the hidden lakes and river. Trails up to 7km from the lodge to the black water Yarina Lake where there are a multitude of Macaws, a rookery for herons and other aquatic birds. Birders also come to see the Wattled Curassow only found near the Yanayacu River basin. We welcome researchers and adventurers to this remote haven.

For certain you will see sloths and blue and gold macaw. If you hike 7km to Yarina lake you will see macaws in the palm trees and around the lake in Kapok tree. Pink and grey dolphins are common at the mouth of the Yana Yacu River. I have seen dolphins 8 of 10 times I have been to Amazon Refuge and once in the high water season they came right under the bungalow. Amazon Refuge is a remote jungle lodge with high ground and 130' canopy with no human outpost upriver from the lodge it is a pristine area abundant in mammals, birds and fish.
