We spent 26 days in South America in Septemter 2012, and the 3 nights/4 days in Refugio Amazons was one of the highlight of our trip. The 2 hours boat trip along Tambopata River from Perto Maldonado was relaxing, yet exciting! Our guide, Listen, who, with his enthusiasm and excellent knowledge of the Amazon, took us on outings in the morning, returning for lunch, and than other excursion in the afternoon. We managed to see lots of wildlife, boat ride on the lake and the Tambopata River, did lots of walks and visit the farm with many exotic fruits and trees. The room was unusual with only three walls, yet surprisingly very few mosquitos. However we were constantly putting on insect repellent, and our friends who did not put on the repellent later found they had lots of mozzy bites. I am also very impressed that being a person with gluten intolerant, the two chefs were always very happy to accommodate my needs and the food was always delicious. The linens were amazingly clean and white, and I was told that they were washed by two person by HANDS!!!!
I found our stay in the Amazon was a safe and interesting place to visit, and the stay at the Refugio Amazons had given my husband and I many wonderful and happy memories!!!
