After lunch, you can take an optional canopy tour (not included in package), the waterfall hike, or simply relax in your private bungalow.

Night in Pacuare Lodge: Linda Vista Suite. 

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 river allows 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, River–view Suites, Garden–view bungalows and Jungle–view bungalows. 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 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.

Cabecar Indian Hike

You’ll wake up to bird song and the soothing sound of the river nearby. 

Then head over to the main lodge for a delicious breakfast of home–made bread, tropical fruits, yogurt, eggs, pancakes, cereal and juice and coffee.
 
After breakfast, hike through forest to visit a Cabecar family clan. 

Lunch and dinner included.
 
Night in Pacuare Lodge: Linda Vista Suite. 

The Talamanca Mountains are host to the Cabecar Indians, the largest indigenous group in Costa Rica, and one that retains many of its traditional customs and beliefs. 

In contrast to many other indigenous groups, the Cabecar do not live in villages, but prefer small family units scattered throughout this isolated region that includes the Pacuare zone. 

From the Pacuare Lodge it is possible to visit an isolated family group to learn about their way of life, as well as enjoying the alluring tropical rainforest. 

The experience to walk to this family clan is a challenge due to the difficult conditions of the trails; nevertheless, the trail offers a wonderful opportunity to discover many secrets of the forest, interact with the ecosystem, and hike the same trails the Cabecar Indians have for centuries. Sometimes there is the possibility to share with the Shaman or medicine man, which is still a more enriching experience. The Zutkia speaks Spanish and Cabecar, his native tongue; therefore, our expert guide will translate during the exchange. After briefly visiting with a nearby Cabecar family, we will begin our trek back down to the lodge.
 
Important:
Duration: Approximately 4 to 5 hours and it is quite physically demanding.
Difficulty: A good physical condition is required.As an indigenous people with little contact with the outside world, the Cabecar can sometimes be shy and reclusive; this will influence the amount of time and contact visitors will have with the Shaman.
We urge our guests to request permission from our guide before taking photographs of any Cabecar people. The Cabecar are very zealous of their customs and way of life and do not like to be photographed, and we strongly respect this wish.
A percentage of the tour cost goes directly to the Cabecar family and will be invested in sustainable projects with this community.

Breakfast at the lodge. Departure from the lodge between 9:00 and 10:00 am. In the morning, you will depart by raft for an even more fun–filled day of white water rating excitement (approximately 3½ hours over class III–IV rapids), including a delicious picnic lunch along the river. At the river take–out, you will have a chance to change clothes before taking the private transfer to Arenal region.
