          About
          Hotel description
          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.
