My three favorite days! The rafting trip was exciting and then to land in the idyllic site for the lodge and hiking stay was a very pleasant surprise. The cabins are perched on the side of the river banks and in my case right on a rushing stream. Clean, private and with hot showers for each. The common area was... More

We LOVED this experience. We did the over night rafting trip. The company picked us up at our hotel (perfectly on time) and the ride to the location was pleasant. The breakfast was delicious and the informational/training presentation great. It was a gorgeous day when we put in, and we had excellent rafting. Overnight at the retreat center was peaceful...

We stayed here for 3 days/2 nights with our teenagers (18,16,14) and friends and their 2 teenage boys. We all loved our time here. The rafting was great fun. The raft to the lodge took just over 1 hour and was relatively gentle and a good way to practice our rafting skills (or lack of them!). The rafting on the... More

We took an age to chose the right river with interesting overnight lodging with rapids with sufficient excitement ( some grade IV ) and Rio Tropicales delivered with spades. Having decided to stay overnight in Turrialba to avoid an early start ( & San Jose) we chose villa florenzia and were collected at a civilised 9.00am by our guide Sacy... More

We had not planned our trip in advance so I had done minimal research. I was a bit surprised about how Rio Tropicales prices out their packages. Our family of 6 could have done a one day white water raft trip (the full river run) for $94 pp including 2 meals but instead opted to stay the night. It was... More

We rafted in and stayed at the lodge for 3 nights (longer than most people). If you want a total escape in a fantastic natural setting, this is the place - it is so remote. We are a family of 4 with 2 grown boys. We went at the end of May early in the rainy season, and the river... More

I have been adventuring with 22 Senior Citizens. This was a 2 day white water rafting trip down the Pecquare river. So exciting. Beautiful scenery and wildlife. This amazing place is only accessible by raft or kayak. The rafting guides did the cooking and the local indigenous people maintained the accommodation. It was spotlessly clean.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Our multi-day trips treat you to an exceptional adventure vacation experience combining rafting on the Pacuare with a stay at our remote "Eco-Lodge", tucked in the rainforest on the banks of the river. A trip of pure magic, unsurpassed beauty, wildlife and ravishing rapids; Pacuare is the quintessential tropical river. Along its course lay several densely vegetated gorges, which shelter, jaguars, ocelots, monkeys, sloths and an incredible variety of birds. Also found within these gorges, is some of the best whitewater in the world. "at its lodge, hammock-filled, thatch-roofed huts, offering dorm and honeymoon style rooms, surround an even larger thatch-roofed lodge net to a gurgling waterfall linking the huts to the lodge’s open-walled dining room, bar and reading room are bamboo-railed boardwalks that make wearing anything but river sandals sacrilegious. Don’t get so comfortable in the reading room’s hammock; however, that you miss the cocktail-hour bell; in true jungle fashion, all apres-paddle drinks are served in coconut shells." (Paddler magazine article, jan./feb.1999, edb). ... more   less
