I stayed with my family on July 04 and 05 and we had an unforgettable vacation at this magic place. Our room, the Jaguar room, one of the best we have ever stayed. The food was excellent. Thank you to all the staff who made us feel special starting from the guides, and the GM. We will never forget our... More

This is a unique place. We arrived after a 2 hour rafting journey on the Pacuare river, dodging rapids with Sun Bittens and Morpho butterflies. You really are in a very remote location when you arrive. Even the staff have to take a basket over the river. The food is quite fantastic and we all loved it. The surprise is... More

This is an amazing National Geo property. It is only accessed by water rafting or cable basket to cross over river. The people are incredibly gracious, helpful, and knowledgeable. It is a unique experience not to be missed if you go to Costa Rica.

No electricity in the rooms, no wifi either except at reception desk so it really is a get away. The only issues I had were that we were... More

We had an awesome rafting adventure into this lodge with awesome and very experienced guides, the rapids were great and the scenery was even better. Once into the lodge we were promptly greeted with drinks and towels and a very kind staff. After checking into our room there were some issues which were promptly corrected by the staff and they...

Our stay at the Pacuare Lodge was amazing. The property is beautiful and the staff were always welcoming and professional. During our stay we participated in several of the excursions, each was exciting and the staff assigned to us were well trained and friendly. As well, we also visited the spa, which we found to be very clean and definitely... More

Pacuare lodge is an absolute must. This was the first stop on our trip and by far the highlight. Each morning we had coffee delivered to our secluded suite, walked over to the main lodge to log onto wifi and charge our phones before having a first class breakfast. You are then given the ability to plan your own outings,... More

Arrived by whitewater raft. I thought we would be passengers but turned out we were crew! Fantastic way to arrive at hotel. Lodge was beautiful, set in lovely gardens surrounded by the river and rain forest.

When we were asked if we were rafting in or by car we quickly changed our mind to raft to the lodge as we didn't select this when we booked the hotel.. this was... More

We arrived by land and what a trip just to get there. We stayed in the Canopy Suite which was as beautiful as the pictures. Do make sure to keep the doors closed - you are in the rainforest and you can get some forest creatures in your room if not careful. The staff is top notch and cater to... More
