Pacuare Lodge image

Pacuare Lodge


Pacuare (The Central highlands, Costa Rica)


A beautiful lodge on the Pacuare river best reached by white-water raft (grades 2-3). The main building is set above the river with good views, a large dining area (mostly open air), an open kitchen and upstairs bar with comfortable sofas and chairs. The lodge also has a spa.


Rafting, ziplining, hiking, birdwatching, massages, riding and mountain bikes.


A range of very comfortable and tastefully-decorated cabañas are spread throughout the grounds, all of which have a private terrace, and indoor and outdoor shower. All rooms are screened and the beds have mosquito nets. The Garden rooms have a view of the surrounding gardens and the River View rooms have a view of the river. There are also some more luxurious cabañas including the Linda Vista suites and Jaguar Villa. These categories feature a large lounge and deck area, a private plunge pool and wonderful views. There is one Canopy suite which is suited to honeymooners as it is very private, nestled on the hillside (170 steps) with access to a tree house via its own suspension bridge.
