I visited the Pacuare Lodge for two nights at the beginning of December 2012. I have to say that I did not quite know what to expect when I booked this destination as a part of a 10 day trip to Costa Rica. As it turned out, my stay here was the highlight of my trip. Fabulous facility, great food, and a true adventure to get to. The quality and care of the lodge facilities, including my room, were sensational and the food magnificent. How they pull this off in this setting I do not know. Nearly everything at the lodge, including most guests, are transported in and out by way of white water raft! Beyond the beautiful setting and exquisite amenities, what makes the place special in my view are the people you will encounter there, both the staff and interesting travelers from all over the world. The staff is amazing in that many double as your guide and as resort staff. Ours were exceptional in their efforts to give us a quality experience in every aspect. Thanks to George and Ivan in particular who treated us all well and became friends. Thanks also to Jonathon who is one smart cookie. An unexpected pleasure was meeting other travelers and becoming friends quickly as we shared unique experiences. The Pacuare Lodge is one neat place and I recommend it!
