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

I can't explain in these few words what a wonderful experience my friend and I had at Pacuare! It wasn't because it was so beautiful or that the food was some of the best that we have had so far but because of the staff! Everyone was beyond accommodating and ready to take of your every need. My best friend... More

Pacuare lodge is amazing. The rafting, the rooms, the staff, the food...all are top notch. We loved our hot outdoor shower and dinner by candlelight. Although you can pay extra to dine privately on the river, the main dining area feels private and overlooks the river as well. Our rafting guide, Luis, was great. we especially loved horseback riding to... More

Actually visited in July 2013, but haven't reviewed until now! I travelled with my family, and we absolutely loved it! The staff couldn't have been more accommodating, they were all so helpful and lovely, they knew you by name, so it made the experience much more personal, which was lovely. The food was delicious, couldn't fault it. Especially loved the... More

Spend three phantastic days and nights at this paradise-like lodge in the middle of the rainforest. One of the most spectacular places I've been to. Adventurous way to get there - by rafting boat. The raft out is even more thrilling with class 3 and 4 rapids. At the lodge we did activities like zip-lining, horse back riding and hikes... More

I'm keeping this in list form because so many others seem to go on and on…I don't have the patience so….here's the skinny! **** WE LOVED EVERY MINUTE OF THIS "FANTASY ISLAND"! 1. Prepare to be wet…meaning, nothing dries out…ever including my hair! Bring a rain coat…you will need it! 2. Don't overpack! You do not need anything dressy! 3.... More

After reading the almost uniformly superb reviews, you do wonder if this hotel can really be that good. Quite simply this is the best hotel and overall travel experience I have ever encountered, and I've stayed at some amazing properties. My family and I just spent four days at this spectacular property, and wonder if we now should simply stop... More

I went for a 4days/3night package this Nov with Pacuare Lodge. I had such an amazing experience with this place that prompted me to write a review for fellow Costa Rica travellers. The raft in and raft out adventure is both beautiful and fun along this white water river. The staff is very professional and make it very safe for... More
