Not sure of where to begin with this review because there is so much to praise My husband and I and our two teenage girl visited the lodge over New Years. My daughter turned 16 New Years Eve, the day we rafted in, I am sure it will not be forgotten my any of us. To start with Andreas met... More

I can't talk about how amazing this trip was enough. Staff, location, activities, the view- everything was incredible. I recommend ziplining, rafting, the candlelit dinner on the river. Floating on that river is my happy place.

The lodge is like nowhere I have ever been . It is magical, not only because of its location: deep in the jungle accessible only by river, but because of the gorgeous rooms, tucked away along the side of the river, complete with quality linen, enormous fresh flowers, white candles (lit by the staff during dinner), and indoor and outdoor...

There cannot be many places in the world where 95% of the guests arrive by raft after a quick course in rafting techniques, and then, tired and dripping wet, are shown to a room without electricity! That of course is one side of the story, and fails to describe the beauty of this remote riverside site, where almost everything is... More

Just returned from a genuinely breath-taking experience at Pacuare Lodge. Early morning start from San Jose and on the river by ten-thirty. The rafting to the lodge was exhilarating, with stunning scenery with knowledgeable and incredibly competent guides for the river. The hotel's setting is truly spectacular as it sits majestically above the river. We were quickly installed in the... More

Two night, three day tour….three couples traveling together. Pick up in San Jose was on time, the bus ride was comfortable and the breakfast was great. The raft trip into the lodge was spectacular, best paddling instructions, safety guidance and white water I've seen. At the lodge we were met with fresh fruit juice and each couple was escorted to...

But everything you may see online can't even compare to the beauty you will experience first-hand at the Pacuare Lodge. This was our first time to CR as we wanted to get away to somewhere "special" for our 25th wedding anniversary. We were in heaven from the moment our guides picked us up at our hotel until the moment they... More

Best part about this place is the location. Deep in a Costa Rica rainforest, we had to raft an hour to get to our accomodation. Which was a stage 2. Once we got there it was breath taking! Our room was the tucan room which was a smaller room but so amazing anyway! Super clean and romantic. The resort is... More

From the way you get there to the people on the lodge, everything was great. We went for our honeymoon trip and it was the best decision we could have made, we stayed on the honeymoon suite and the view from the pool and the hanging bridge is amazing!!! We really enjoyed the river and the trip trough the jungle... More
