Founded in 1986, our company is one of the oldest and most respected tour operators in Costa Rica.
At Pacuare Lodge, we combine luxurious appointments, unmatched service, and our celebrated sustainability philosophy with the natural gifts that the Pacuare River gives us. Each of our bungalows is a unique, separate dwelling that’s close enough to the restaurant and reception that you won’t get lost on your way to dinner, but far enough in the rainforest that you’ll be fully immersed in the magic of our surroundings.
What We Offer
We specialize in customized experiences that include everything from thrilling whitewater rafting adventures to romantic honeymoon getaways. We pride ourselves on quality outdoor trips that stand above the majority of adventure tours offered in Costa Rica, on exceeding our customer’s expectations, and on ensuring that every tour is entertaining, informative, and utterly unique.
In Harmony With Nature
The Pacuare Lodge was built with minimal impact on the river and rainforest . No trees were cut to build the bungalows and facilities. Instead, lumber was purchased from a sustainable reforestation project operated by small farmers.
The Pacuare Lodge is engaged in various projects to study and conserve the wildlife in our area, in partnership with Costa Rican Universities and nonprofit organizations. We’ve also partnered with local communities to help improve their basic services and livelihoods, while working to raise environmental awareness. With your support, we can accomplish even more to ensure that the Pacuare River’s natural and cultural treasures are preserved for future generations.
Our Professional Staff
A spirit of adventure and true concern for the environment are just two of the driving forces for our staff.

Many of our guides have additional certifications, such as wilderness first aid and first responder. Our top-notch office staff can develop custom programs and itineraries to meet the needs of the most demanding clients, whether couples or larger groups.
