Refugio Amazonas is a 32-bedroom lodge four hours from the Puerto Maldonado airport. It is ideal for soft adventurers and families, and has a rainforest trail designed especially for children, the only one in the Peruvian Amazon.

Travelers to the Tambopata Research Center (TRC) also stop off at the Refugio on the way to and from the TRC.
