Tambopata Research Center (known colloquially as “TRC”) is the only lodge that lies within Tambopata National Reserve–one of the crown jewels of Peru’s Amazon Basin. TRC one of the most remote lodges in South America. It is axiomatic that remoteness has advantages when you’re seeking rare wildlife; reportedly, one of every three guests at TRC has seen a jaguar. Good luck doing that from a “more convenient” lodge or a river cruise.
