We loved this lodge! Our guide Mey was terrific! He really made this part of our trip more special. We thoroughly enjoyed the food and activities and the scenery was amazing! Our rooms were well maintained and we really enjoyed sitting out on the balcony and watching the river and the birds. No AC, but the temperature was comfortable for... More

My wife, daughter and I took the two-day one-night rafting trip. It was a fantastic experience that we'll never forget. Booking was easy. The whole thing is very well organized. Pick-up from and return to our hotel (in Puerto Viejo de Sarapiqui -- no extra charge) went smoothly. Breakfast was fine. The rafting was exhilarating and challenging (people did fall... More

My wife and I did the overnight trip -- raft about 10km the first day, 20 the second. Rios Tropicales picked us up at our hotel on the front end and provided transportation to our next hotel (in La Fortuna) on the back end. In between, they delivered on a great rafting experience, good food, a little zip-lining and hiking,... More

My Mom and I stayed one night at Rios Tropicales on April 22. It was incredible from the journey there on the raft, to the fantastic river guides/chefs, to the accommodations. I would highly recommend this to anyone looking for an adventurous vacation!

Everything about this trip was amazing. The rafting was fun and safe, the lodge was beautiful and comfortable, the zip line, natural water slide and jungle walks well organized. So much to see on your own as well, hidden waterfall only a 30 minute walk away, in addition to natural waterfall swimming pool behind lodge. I can't recommend Rios Tropicales... More

What a great experience in the jungle! Very professional! A little effort to get there from San Jose, but well worth it. What a great night with the sounds of the water and jungle. We can't wait to go back.

Spent two night at the lodge and had a blast. It is very rustic with few extras. The rooms over look the river with beautiful views of the river and canyon. I would return. Also a great trail system that will take you to waterfalls, zip lines, pools etc are at your door. The food was cooked by our guides.... More

If you want to feel the peace, hear the live through your ears, this will be the best place to go, also with a lot of adventures to go, such as canopy 4 lines, walk in the woods, and then finish what you started two or one day before, the rafting.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Our multi-day trips treat you to an exceptional adventure vacation experience combining rafting on the Pacuare with a stay at our remote "Eco-Lodge", tucked in the rainforest on the banks of the river. A trip of pure magic, unsurpassed beauty, wildlife and ravishing rapids; Pacuare is the quintessential tropical river. Along its course lay several densely vegetated gorges, which shelter, jaguars, ocelots, monkeys, sloths and an incredible variety of birds. Also found within these gorges, is some of the best whitewater in the world. "at its lodge, hammock-filled, thatch-roofed huts, offering dorm and honeymoon style rooms, surround an even larger thatch-roofed lodge net to a gurgling waterfall linking the huts to the lodge’s open-walled dining room, bar and reading room are bamboo-railed boardwalks that make wearing anything but river sandals sacrilegious. Don’t get so comfortable in the reading room’s hammock; however, that you miss the cocktail-hour bell; in true jungle fashion, all apres-paddle drinks are served in coconut shells." (Paddler magazine article, jan./feb.1999, edb). ... more   less
