White water rafting into to this beautiful lodge was a wonderful experience, as was the rest of our 4 night stay. The location is fabulous, our river bungalow very comfortable and the reception areas spacious and appealing. The jewel in Pacuare's crown is their staff. The guy who pilots your raft may well be serving you your dinner that evening,...
