My husband and I looked at quite a few places in Iquitos before booking our trip but didn't find the other companies and tour guides to be as open, honest and genuine as the people at Amazon Refuge which made us decide to book with...More
Great place to experience the proper jungle! About 5hours from Iquitos by boat, away from the cut down jungle around Iquitos :) We got picked up from the harbour by Sandro, cause we met a friend of him on the boat to Iquitos and we...More
We arrived in Iquitos and found the hostel that was ran by the Amazon Refuge tour company. We arranged a trip with them and left the next day for a four day adventure. It was fantastic! We saw 7 different types of monkeys, a couple...More

Thanks for your review. The wildlife around Amazon Refuge is superior to any areas closer to Iquitos. You have to be up for a 5-6 hour trip to get there and back but it is well worth the effort as you pointed out. The food...More

Many thanks for your in depth review. It is great that you pointed out the need to be prepared for the inconveniences as well as the spectacular majesty of the jungle. Many lodges closer to Iquitos offer more of an eco-light experience which for many...More
We did a 3 night / 4 days tour with our guide Wilder and his crew. It was an amazing experience, because Wilder really knows the amazon with the animals and plants, because he growed up in the jungle and his family still leaves their....More

Thanks for you review. It is very gratifying to know how much you enjoyed Amazon Refuge. Wilder is a fantastic guide and so humble yet brilliant in his knowledge of the jungle. The wildlife in this remote area is superior to other lodges even those...More
Amazon Refuge is a remote eco-lodge with unsurpassed variety and abundance of wildlife. We have kayaks, dugout canoes and motorized canoes for exploring the hidden lakes and river. Trails up to 7km from the lodge to the black water Yarina Lake where there are a multitude of Macaws, a rookery for herons and other aquatic birds. Birders also come to see the Wattled Curassow only found near the Yanayacu River basin. We welcome researchers and adventurers to this remote haven.

For certain you will see sloths and blue and gold macaw. If you hike 7km to Yarina lake you will see macaws in the palm trees and around the lake in Kapok tree. Pink and grey dolphins are common at the mouth of... More
For certain you will see sloths and blue and gold macaw. If you hike 7km to Yarina lake you will see macaws in the palm trees and around the lake in Kapok tree. Pink and grey dolphins are common at the mouth of the Yana Yacu River. I have seen dolphins 8 of 10 times I have been to Amazon Refuge and once in the high water season they came right under the bungalow. Amazon Refuge is a remote jungle lodge with high ground and 130' canopy with no human outpost upriver from the lodge it is a pristine area abundant in mammals, birds and fish.
