The magical Pacuare Lodge consists of elegant bungalows and suites set amid lush butterfly-filled jungle foliage on the banks of the Pacuare River, Costa Rica’s most spectacular white-water route. It’s the perfect accommodation choice if you like activities and adventure as getting here is half the fun, involving a rafting trip through jungle and narrow canyons.
If you just want to relax, head to the indulgent Jawa Juu Spa for a soothing treatment in one of hits relaxing treatment rooms as you listen to the sounds of the rainforest.
There are several choices of accommodation starting with jungle-view rooms which are great for families offering two rooms in a two-storey building, traditionally decorated with bamboo beds, wood furnishings and soft drapes. They have a bathroom, bathrobes, private terrace with hammock and rainforest views. Canopy honeymoon suites are the most luxurious reachable by their own suspension bridge that leads from the deck to a platform in a massive rainforest tree for views of the river. They feature king beds, Egyptian cotton linens, stone bathroom and solar-heated showers, terrace with hammock and sofa, swimming pool and sun deck and complete seclusion.
Costa Rica is an outdoor-lover’s paradise, with such a fabulous range of activities on offer. Perhaps the most obvious one from the Pacuare Lodge would be its one-day white-water rafting tour where you’ll discover thrilling rapids coursing through rugged canyons and tropical rain forests. There’s also zip-wiring, canopy tours, hiking, and the option to visit San Jose.
The lodge has one dining room staffed by young people from the local communities, all with a talent and most importantly who love to cook. Guests can dine on fresh local dishes made by this passionate team for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
