Refugio Amazonas is a 32-bedroom lodge located in a 200-hectare private reserve within the buffer zone of the Tambopata National Reserve. It was built from traditional materials including wood, palm fronds, and clay. Bedrooms are separated from one another by light cane fencing, with drapes instead of doors; rooms are private but not soundproof. Each room has a spacious private bathroom with hot water, and each bed is equipped with a mosquito net.
Numerous kerosene lamps and candles provide the lighting. Electricity and internet are available in the common areas of the lodge. The dining room is a huge open building with a loft on the second story for an eye level view of the surrounding rainforest canopy.
