We stayed at Casa Rio Blanco the night before and after a two-day trip down the Pacuare. Our hosts, Annette and Herbie, were very welcoming and accommodating. Getting to the Casa Rio Blanco Eco Lodge was easy, our GPS that came with our rental car already knew it as a "point of interest".
Annette provided a wonderful home-cooked dinner shortly after our arrival. The water glasses were always filled with the deep mountain spring water that flows under her property. While it comes from her kitchen tap, to call it "tap water" is a mischaracterization. It was the best tasting water I've ever had. Breakfast the next morning was also very nice, and was prepared to fit with our schedule for that day.
Our cabin was simple, but absolutely wonderful. There are screened windows all around the cabin, letting in the fresh air and allowing you to see out into the forest, gardens, and hear the river below. (The screens were in excellent condition, you don't need to worry about bugs getting in.)The sounds of the river below and the light breeze made for a wonderful nights sleep -priceless!
Hiking down along a stream to the river for a swim was a great way to start our adventures in Costa Rica. The scenery is lush, the water is crystal clear, and the best part, we had the stream and the river all to ourselves.
Annette and Herbie were such accommodating hosts, they allowed us to leave the bulk of our luggage at the lodge while we were on our overnight rafting trip on the Pacuare.
Overall, we had a wonderful experience and are planning to return.
