Refugio Amazonas is built on a 200 hectare private reserve on the buffer zone of the Tambopata National Reserve. It is becoming integrated to the communities of Brazil nut extractors that surround it, attempting to extend the benefits of ecotourism to the families that commit to the sustainable use of the forest within this buffer zone. The lodge is surrounded by a mosaic of waterways and habitats and a worked Brazil Nut concession it presents an ideal balance for naturalist exploration and observations of sustainable forest use by local populations.
