The food was great, the setting sublime, the staff amazing, and our guide was fantastic. A tip of the hat to the Rainforest Expedition folks who are constantly arranging for the comings and...

My husband and I stayed for 3 nights in September. It was wonderful - a very different experience that we would not have missed. The centre itself is lovely, the rooms well designed, the food excellent and the staff incredibly helpful. The most exciting part was seeing the birds, animals and insects. We had an excellent guide in Jair, who...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Tambopata Research Center (TRC) is a spartan yet comfortable 18 bedroom lodge with 8 shared bathrooms. Because of its remote location in uninhabited wilderness, housing stable populations of endangered wildlife, the small scale of its infrastructure and operations and the presence of researchers and naturalist guides, Tambopata Research Center is an excellent headquarters for in depth explorations of Amazonian nature and wildlife. It is located in a half hectare clearing in the middle of the uninhabited portion of the Tambopata National Reserve, less than a kilometer from the world's largest and most diverse macaw claylick. ... more   less
