Tambo Ilusion retreat center is located in the countryside 15 minutes away from the center of Tarapoto city. Tambo Ilusion is recognized by the minister of Environment as a "private conservation area" for the ecological services that are practiced here. The owner, Armando Rodriguez has been protecting his property for the past 32 years and in this time, the forest has been able to regenerate itself. The grounds are beautiful and are the home of many species of animals like birds, monkeys, opposums, etc. who roam around freely. Tambo Ilusion's mission is a tripod of nature conservation, environmental education and ecotourism. Ecotourism is a very important activity for Tambo Ilusion as it financially supports the other activities practiced on the land. In 2011, Armando's Canadian life partner joined him and together they created the retreat center building 6 cozy "tambos" to receive a maximum of 14 guests and a beautiful maloca where yoga classes are offered on request. Johanne's passion for yoga, cooking and health was the perfect addition to Armando's dream of developing ecotourism activities. In 2014, Tambo Ilusion was recognized as one of the top 5 yoga centers of Peru as well as one of the ecological resorts to discover in 2015 by "El Comercio" newspaper. At Tambo Ilusion, expect to be greeted warmly and treated like a special guest, to be surrounded by natural beauty, to sleep in very comfortable beds in quaint and rustic wooden cabins with a high thatched roof and a hammock hanging on the porch, cool off swimming in the freshwater lagoon and relax on the dock, listen to the sounds of the wildlife, eat very well...
