It's great. So nice of a change. It is very hard to get there. We took a 2 hour water rafting trip to the hotel. You have the option of a bumpy road on a 4 wheel something or other. One traveler told me it was a hard trip. Food was nice and fresh which was included in the price....

July 9, 2014 - Gustavo, our driver, picked us up at your hotel in San Jose early in the morning. We shuttled around to other hotels to pick up the rest of the rafters (from the U.S., U.K., Canada, South Africa, and Australia). We all introduced ourselves and a friendly Texan said, "so, tell is your life story" to break...

Everything starts with the exciting water rafting that you have to take in order to get to the hotel. Your water rafting guide will be your companion during the whole trip. The hotel is amazing… it is secluded in the middle of the forest, doesn’t have electricity, but you WONT need it or want it… this is one factor that...

This place is amazing and if you have the option to include it in your holiday and you like the idea of jungle exploring with luxury this is the perfect place.

This was an experience of a life time. It had been a number of years since we were last here and it made us realize that we shouldn't wait so long to come back.

Visiting Pacuare Lodge for our parent's 50th wedding anniversary was an amazing experience! From ages 15 to 76, there was something for everyone.

Pacuare River Lodge is a beautiful exclusive eco haven, which is hidden in the jungle and only accessible via raft. The raft guides then turn into your servants for breakfast, lunch and dinner. This enables the staff at Pacuare Lodge to create a strong bonding with the guests. We stayed in the honeymoon canopy suite Lodge. It was stunning. Before...
