Everything starts with the exciting water rafting that you have to take in order to get to the hotel. Your water rafting guide will be your companion during the whole trip. The hotel is amazing… it is secluded in the middle of the forest, doesn’t have electricity, but you WONT need it or want it… this is one factor that... More

This place is amazing and if you have the option to include it in your holiday and you like the idea of jungle exploring with luxury this is the perfect place. Firstly credit has to go to the staff who were with us from the raft in through to the final lunch after rafting out. Their enthusiasm and level of... More

This was an experience of a life time. It had been a number of years since we were last here and it made us realize that we shouldn't wait so long to come back. The Pacuare River is a class IV whitewater rafting which in itself is a wonderful experience but to stop for two nights on the way down... More

Visiting Pacuare Lodge for our parent's 50th wedding anniversary was an amazing experience! From ages 15 to 76, there was something for everyone. The rooms were incredible with the outdoor showers, private swimming pool, comfortable beds and jungle view. The staff (especially Roy and Roberto) were excellent guides, taking us on wonderful excursions and especially taking care of our gently... More

Pacuare River Lodge is a beautiful exclusive eco haven, which is hidden in the jungle and only accessible via raft. The raft guides then turn into your servants for breakfast, lunch and dinner. This enables the staff at Pacuare Lodge to create a strong bonding with the guests. We stayed in the honeymoon canopy suite Lodge. It was stunning. Before... More

The Pacuare Lodge, on the banks of the Pacuare River, in Turrialba, Costa Rica, is a truly great way to spend a short vacation in the lush tropical forest. The adventure starts even before getting into the lodge. Arriving on a raft, through mild but still exciting (2-3 level) rapids of the Pacuare River, you're totally away from urban life... More

Incredible arriving by White Water raft through primary forest. Gorgeous setting nestled besides the river. First class service, staff bending over backwards to help make my stay spectacular, incredible food, stunning rooms up close and personal with nature at her finest. We enjoyed a sumptuous breakfast banquet on top of a tree in The Nest - spectacular experience. Jorge our... More

We want to keep this lodge and the fantastic staff a secret. We rafted in and stayed three nights in a jungle view room. An incredible experience! The grounds were beautiful with toucans and blue morpho butterflies galore. The food was outstanding … and always tastes better served by candlelight. We loved the staff who got to know everyone by... More
