Amazon Rainforest Extension
Our home-away-from-home in the Amazon will be Tambopata Research Center, a boutique eco-luxury lodge located in the heart of the national reserve. This is truly a one-of-a-kind experience that cannot be replicated anywhere else on the planet!
This is the only lodge located inside the Tambopata National Park. With this unique location, far away from any city, you get much more chances to see wildlife, increasing your changes to spot jaguars, anacondas, capibaras, sloths, birds, caimans, monkeys, and other incredible animals.
IMPORTANT: Because of its unique location, there is important information about Tambopata Research Center that you should be open to:
There are no roads – the roads are the rivers. We use fast boats to get everywhere, looking for more chances to see wildlife. The naturalist guides will know when, where, and what chances you have to spot wildlife and other interesting content in the area. Trust your guides and ask all the questions you might have.
The Amazon basin is a rainforest environment, so humidity and heat will be there no matter what, as well as bugs.
There is no air conditioning, and no actual windows (windows would trap heat)– at night, the temperatures lower down.
The open and spacious rooms offer lots of natural light and fresh air while providing safe but close contact with the forest environment. The three-wall rooms allow you to connect with nature, but no worries nothing will enter into your room. The lodge and rooms are 3 meters away from the forest and 1 meter and a half above the ground. Each room is also equipped with private bathrooms for your convenience. The use of mosquito netting on each bed is strongly recommended to ensure your comfort and safety.
The food is delicious (and different, regional, super local, organic, and fresh).
Be open to a different environment for this eco-adventure. The real luxury here is the forest, your chances to see wildlife, and understand the importance of research and sustainability practices to protect our planet.
