What we got was we rafted out with the other guests, the raft trip that was the exit raft trip that was part of the base price. Essentially 10:30, completing at 1pm with a drive back to the lodge...

Seriously, unbelievable!! We went on our honeymoon and I still wonder if it was all a dream. I have never had such a simple yet exciting trip, while feeling treated like a king. Everything at Pacuare is an adventure. The food is unbelievable and everything was incredibly fresh, a lot coming in from their organic farm. Breakfast was delivered to... More

Had an amazing stay at Pacuare Lodge. This is one of those "Must do" trips and I already live in Costa Rica and have experienced a lot over the last 10 years I've lived in this amazing country. The experience of rafting in and out was great--although the raft out is 100x more thrilling than the raft in. This place... More

I cannot say enough good things about this place and I am sure the other reviews will say it much better then I will. The rafting, lodge, suite, staff, food and level of service are all incredible. The pictures on the website look great but actually experiencing the lodge and all it had to offer was amazing. Luis Ivan and... More

This was part of my 6th week of travel and l could not find fault with the whole experience! The staff are exceptional, l have been to many 5* accommodation and restaurants and a lot of them could learn from the excellent service provided by the staff. Everyone knew your name and greeted you throughout your stay. The villa was... More

We spent three nights in the honeymoon suite at Pacuare Lodge in May and thought it was one of the most wonderful places we've ever been. Toucans, oropendola, howler monkies and tree frogs abound in the river canyon, and we got a good look at all of them. The food was amazing. The staff were very friendly and helpful with... More

We stayed here for a couple of nights and what an experience it was. We are not the most adventurous and we stayed as part of a prize winning holiday. Not the sort of things that we have picked in a million years - but I am so glad we had the opportunity to do it. I'm afraid the white... More

I read the reviews and thought it was to good to be true. However the entire experience exceeded our expectations. The first day of rafting gave us a snapshot of what was ahead of us. The food was outstanding and we especially liked The tenderloin along with some very good wine. Henry ( our guide) treated us like we were... More

My wife and I spent part of our honeymoon here in October 2011. We stayed in the Canopy Honeymoon Suite which was so cool, amazing, and romantic. We loved the water running through the suite, the candles at night, the outdoor showers, the infinity pool, and the suspension bridge. While there we had a private zip line tour which we... More
