Pacuare Lodge is a luxury eco-lodge in the rainforest overlooking the Pacuare River.

Named by National Geographic as one of the most scenic rivers in the world, this is a truly idyllic spot. One of the highlights of this lodge is the journey to and from it. Guests have the choice of travel by road or rafting down the Pacuare river with experienced guides; an unforgettable experience and truly unique way of reaching your hotel.

The 20 suites are housed in individual bungalows with spectacular views of the river and surrounding rainforest. Thatched rooves, teak floors and canopy beds complete the luxury eco-feel. The Ecological way of life is the heart and soul of this hotel and sustainable tourism is of huge importance here. The hotel was built without cutting down any trees, in harmony with the rainforest and any timber was sourced from a nearby reforestation project. Local and natural products are used throughout from the materials to the spa treatments and renewable energy powers much of the hotel.

Pacuare Lodge employs large numbers of its staff from the local area ensuring that the local economy is supported and guests are provided with excellent knowledge and service. Pacuare runs and supports various projects in the area from reforestation to preservation and reintroduction of species such as jaguars and howler monkeys and funding of local schools and communities.

The restaurant is unique in that it employs local people who are excellent cooks and helps them to develop that passion. As a result, the cuisine is full of local flavours and traditional dishes. Most of the ingredients comes from the nearby organic farm, ensuring a true farm to table experience. The Nest is a private dining experience in a 60-foot-high Kapo tree.

The Kapo is considered sacred by the Mayans and this is the perfect place for a romantic meal by candlelight. The spa offers indulgent massages, facials and wraps using organic, natural products ensuring guests relax with the sound of the river flowing by. Numerous activities are on offer at the lodge including rafting, canyoning, hikes with indigenous Cabecar Indians, canopy tours and visits to local reserves and waterfalls.

The newly installed pool at Pacuare Lodge completes what is a truly sensational lodge, and the perfect spot to relax, even if you are not into some of the more adventurous activities.

For a truly unique and sustainable experience complemented with luxury and personal service, Pacuare Lodge is the best in Costa Rica.
