    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

    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

    Hotel description
    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.
