Pacuare constitutes one of the most important protected areas in the entire region. Its close proximity to the lowlands mixes with a high annual rainfall to create an ecosystem that is as complex as it is beautiful. Throughout much of this land flows the Pacuare River, rumored as being one of the finest rivers for white-water rafting in all of Latin America. The river’s path cuts through primordial rainforest, courses through dense vegetation and borders steep cliffs—unrivaled scenery for rafting excursions. In addition to rafting, visitors to this area can enjoy wonderful hiking and animal spotting, which can include jaguars, ocelots, monkeys, sloths and many other bird and animal species.

The aim of the Pacuare Lodge is to provide a place where their guests can enjoy the perks of nature without sacrificing comfort or sustainability. This eco-lodge is dedicated to protecting the natural environment, committed to using sustainable practices such as recycling, reforestation and solar-heating. In fact, the World Tourism Organization has recognized the Pacuare Lodge as being a worldwide example of sustainability and ecotourism.

These eco-friendly bungalows are nestled between the river and the Lodge’s own 840-acre (340-hectare) nature reserve. Nearly every accommodation features king size beds, private showers (both indoor and outdoor), spacious living quarters, and expansive decks that offer stunning views of the surrounding rainforest. All have hardwood teak floors and come with beds that are decked out in orthopedic mattresses and Egyptian cotton sheets. There are several different rooming options, catering to honeymooners, families and couples.

There is a main lodge overlooking the Pacuare River—a two-story, thatched-roof structure with plenty of open-air spaces and places to relax. The ground floor holds the restaurant, which prepares three delicious, gourmet meals everyday using all natural ingredients. The lodge’s upper level is a spacious lounge/bar area set with wicker sofa chairs, board games, and plenty of colorful flowers. It’s an area that invites evening relaxation, as guests kick back and swap stories of the day’s adventures.
Your stay includes two tours per person per night, there are eight tours to choose from and you can make the arrangements at the hotel.

The extra tours you might book at the hotels can be: Tropical Canyoning, Adventure Canopy Tour, Birdwatching Tour, Sustainability Tour, Cabecar Indigenous Hike

Feedback from Travelers

This special place is like paradise. We enjoyed every minute. Felix was incredible! All of the guides Carlito, Herraldo, and Jose were amazing. We were treated like family and felt very special! Falling asleep nightly to the sounds of the river and frogs was so memorable. We slept better than we ever have.


Pacuare Jungle Lodge exceeded our expectations. The rafting trips were fun. The facility is luxury in a natural setting. Our guides were friendly and informative. On site tours were fun and informative.
