Refugio Amazonas is a simple, 24 room lodge located in a 120 hectare private reserve surrounded by the community of Condenado, ~ three hours by boat from the nearest town Puerto Maldonado. Thanks to its location in the Tambopata National Reserve buffer zone, Refugio Amazonas is the ideal stepping stone for explorations to the Tambopata Research Center. Refugio Amazonas will play an important role coalescing the communities around it to support the conservation of the buffer adjacent to the Tambopata National Reserve.

ACCOMMODATIONS AT REFUGIO AMAZONAS

Refugio Amazonas has been built using a combination of traditional native materials (wood, palm fronds, wild cane and clay) and architecture and modern day eco-lodge technology. The lodge itself consists of a complex divided into sections: rooms, dining area and kitchen, relaxation area and internal support facilities. The entire roof of the lodge is constructed using high quality crisneja palm fronds, whereas the floors are of tropical mahogany.

The room's complex is built of four 9 X 24 meter structures. The rooms are 7 x 4 meters so they can comfortably hold three beds, although they are set up for two. The walls dividing each room are built using cane and clay, and extend from the floor to about 2.5 meters height making each room private. The combination of clay and cane achieves two important objectives: regulating heat and providing a charming final appearance. Sounds can be heard from room to room. The side that looks out to the forest does not have a wall or screening of any kind, acting as a large window facing the forest.

The reason the lodge has been able to incorporate this design into our lodge is because mosquitoes are not really a problem around the lodge clearing and the open section allows for an intimate contact with the rain forest. A second small window on the opposite side, set up very high, keeps the rooms well ventilated. Beds are 1.05m X 2.05m with mosquito nets. Each room has a private bathroom with hot water. Rooms and bathrooms are separated by drapes. The dining room and lounge is spacious and offers ample area for resting and socializing.

Kate was great to work with in the planning stage. She was prompt, helpful, and efficient. Our tour guide, Edwin, was knowledgeable and passionate. We were very happy to have traveled with Adventure Life, it made the trip easy and a true pleasure. We could concentrate on enjoying the experience rather than the details of travel.
