Make Your Next Vacation an Adventure
A visit to the Pacuare Lodge is a journey to a magical place where the beauty and diversity of tropical nature delight the senses, authentic Costa Rican hospitality makes you feel like part of the family and the outdoor adventures range from exhilarating to sublime. The lodge’s comfortable bungalows and elegant suites are nestled between a pristine wilderness reserve and the Pacuare River – Costa Rica’s most spectacular white water route. It is surrounded by tropical rainforest where colorful birds and butterflies flit through exuberant foliage and the songs of toucans and oropendolas complement the soothing sound of flowing water.
Getting there is half the adventure, since most guests stay at the Pacuare Lodge as part of a multi-day rafting tour on the Pacuare River, though it can be visited without rafting. That unforgettable river trip takes you through lush jungle and narrow canyons where tropical trees tower over the riverbank and crystalline waterfalls plummet out of the greenery. In addition to rafting, you can enjoy horseback riding, bird watching, canyoning, a rainforest canopy tour, or a trek to a Cabecar Indian community. But the Pacuare Lodge is also an ideal spot to kick back and relax, enjoy the scenery and serenity, and get to know the local people. In fact, most guests say they wish they’d booked a longer stay.
The Pacuare Lodge is truly unique – a jungle lodge where gourmet dinners are accompanied by candlelight and a wine list, and where adventure travel activities are complemented by a spa, honeymoon packages and suites with private pools. It is also an exemplary ecolodge that conserves 300 hectares (740 acres) of rainforest, and is committed to mitigating tourism’s impact through eco-friendly accommodations and projects that benefit local communities. Such good practices helped the Pacuare Lodge earn the Rainforest Alliance Verified seal and the highest rating under the Costa Rican government’s Sustainable Tourism Certification. The lodge also maintains the highest safety standards, and a dedication to details and friendly service that makes every stay special. It is hardly a coincidence that so many people say the Pacuare Lodge was the highpoint of their Costa Rica vacation.
