In the Caribbean region of Costa Rica, there is a protected zone of incomparable beauty that begins near the town of Siquirres and covers approximately 25,000 acres as it descends down the Talamanca Mountain Range. Deep inside this protected zone, perched on the banks of its enchanting Pacuare River, lies the singular Pacuare Lodge. You can arrive to the lodge either by river or by land, or a combination of the two. Arrival by river takes you along scenic class III rapids, and departure by riverallows you to experience the magnificence of this zone’s canyons and primary rainforest, via class III and IV rapids. You may also plan your arrival by ground transportation through impressive scenery and cross the river on a hanging gondola. A departure by ground transportation is also available, providing an alternative for families and others guests who prefer dry land, or would like to avoid the more challenging rapids. The lodge offers 19 bungalows of different categories: Linda Vista Suites, Honneymoon Suites and River Suites. All bungalows were built with special attention to the hillside’s topography and are equipped with solar heated shower, private terrace and hardwood flooring; some of these bungalows have a private deck with a pool. In addition, the main building features a restaurant, an open kitchen and a cozy lounge bar. Many optional activities and tours such as the Canopy Adventure Tour, a visit to the Cabecar indian comunity, a day-break walk or a massage treatments in Jawa Juu Spa are also available. The Pacuare Lodge’s philosophy is a simplistic luxury and oneness with nature. One important thing to know… there is no electricity in the lodge. All packages include transportation, river rafting, bilingual guides, gourmet meals and lodging.
