For a real immersion into the Peruvian Amazon, Tambopata Research Center is as authentic as it comes. This secluded eco-lodge sits in the Tambopata National Reserve near Bahuaja Sonene National Park and is surrounded by thick jungle and boundless native wildlife. The lodge itself is equipped with plenty of creature comforts – from the outdoor decks, rain showers, comfy beds and extras in the Suites to the massage service and welcoming common areas. However, it’s all about the wildlife and experiences here at Tambopata Research Center. This is a working hub of scientific study, meaning you’ll have access to research, expert guides and some of the most pristine Amazon rainforest in Peru throughout your stay. And there are endless wildlife encounters to be had here too, whether searching for monkeys, birdwatching, admiring the forest from above in the onsite Canopy tower to taking a boat tour, the choice is yours.

Rooms at TRC

The three-room categories at Tambopata Research Center – Comfort Room, Suites and Deluxe Suites – are all a good size and adorned in the low-key décor of wood, bamboo and neutral colors you find elsewhere throughout the lodge. All come with rain showers, queen-size beds, Wi-Fi and eco-friendly toiletries, while the superior categories enjoy a larger floorplan, seating area and for some, an outdoor bathtub and decking.
