Airport Transfer

The lodge is approximately 2 and a half hours’ drive from San José, followed by around 90 minutes of white water rafting through spectacular canyons and dense jungle. Alternatively, it’s a 30 minute ride in a four wheel drive vehicle from the drop-off point, along a rough and bumpy track, before crossing the river in a hanging gondola. Helicopter transfers from San José are also available on request.

Location

Deep in the rainforest to the east of San José, on the banks of the Pacuare River.

Accommodation

20 suites blend almost imperceptibly with their rainforest surroundings, with features including palm-thatched roofs, plush canopy beds, ceiling fans, generous open plan bathrooms and outdoor rain showers. River Suites are set in the gardens and open onto a private terrace with hammock. The terraces of the larger River View Deluxe Suites overlook the Pacuare River whilst the highly recommended Linda Vista Suites also boast spacious indoor and outdoor living areas as well as a private plunge pool. The secluded Canopy Suite is a favourite for honeymooners, with its own plunge pool and a private suspension bridge leading to a tree-top viewing platform. The palatial Jaguar Villa has a large living room, two bathrooms, each with an indoor and outdoor shower, a soaking tub overlooking the river, a treetop platform for spotting wildlife and a large terrace with a private pool.

Restaurants And Bars

The excellent restaurant makes extensive use of the fruit and vegetables grown at the hotel’s own organic farm, and boasts an impressive wine cellar. There is also an open-air riverside lounge with a small bar. The Nest is a truly unique culinary experience, where you can enjoy a candlelit dinner for up to four people on a platform 20 metres up in the rainforest canopy. The lodge can also arrange a romantic dinner by the riverside with candles and a firepit.

Fiona's View

OUR Costa Rica SPECIALIST

Roberto and Luz Caceres have owned Pacuare Lodge for over 20 years and have created a truly stunning hideaway - this is one of the most special places that we have experienced on our travels.

The back-to-nature ethos means there’s limited electricity in the suites, with candles and lanterns used for lighting - it is super romantic, but we suggest packing a torch for getting around after dark.

With mosquito netting replacing glass panes in the windows here, you are completely immersed in your tropical surroundings - the soothing sounds of jungle critters and the rushing river will lull you into a blissful sleep every night.

Arriving here by raft makes you feel like a real adventurer - it’s a lot of fun and the highly experienced river guides take great care of any nervous first-time paddlers.
