A slick, top quality riverside lodge in the Costa Rican rainforest offering rafting, zip-lining, wildlife and bird watching.

Pacuare Lodge sits on a bend in the river in truly breathtaking surroundings and has a real magic of its own. Shrouded by dense rainforest brought alive by rampant birdlife and the constant roar of the river, this is one of the most special places to stay in Costa Rica. Bearing in mind the remote and wild setting, the lodge is remarkably stylish and luxurious, with attention to detail at every stage and harnessing solar and hydroelectric power.

Open-walled, polished-wood guest cabins are peppered amidst tropical gardens. River Suites are a fine choice for seclusion and privacy. Or treat yourself to a Linda Vista Suite and enjoy your own pool. Top of the line Canopy Suites are reached by hanging bridges. Facilities include a swimming pool where you can take a dip under the watchful eye of howler monkeys and toucans. There's a spa and even a brewery. The kitchen is staffed by local people who have acquired their culinary skills through years of experience creating Costa Rican and fusion delicacies.

To get here is an adventure in itself: a thrilling and exhilarating rafting journey along the pristine river under the full supervision of expert guides (you can also arrive at the lodge by 4x4). Once here, spend your days birding or following forest trails accompanied by naturalist guides, or opt for adrenaline activities such as zip-lining and canyoning.

Our Expert's Opinion

Pacuare is a super special property and offers an amazing and unique experience. My favourite place in Costa Rica. The food is really delicious and beautifully prepared and presented. I enjoyed an exciting experience rappelling and loved the night tour in the jungle.
