The Pacuare Lodge is nestled in a rainforest overlooking the Pacuare River, which National Geographic has listed as one of the worlds top ten scenic rivers. Getting to this exquisite eco-lodge is half the adventure, since you arrive and depart as part of a multi-day rafting tour on the Pacuare River. The luxuriant rainforest that surrounds the Pacuare Lodge is a private reserve that forms part of the largest network of protected areas in Central America, covering more than 1.2 million acres of tropical wilderness.
Guests have the opportunity to experience an unforgettable meal in the Nest: a platform 60 feet above the jungle floor in the branches of century-old Kapok tree – considered a sacred tree by the ancient Mayans. All of the staff at the Pacuare Lodge are from local communities, and the friendly, casual atmosphere has been cited by guests as one of the most pleasant aspects of their stay.
The Pacuare Lodge Adventure is sold as a package trip that includes:
Transportation from San José, bilingual guide, typical Costa Rican breakfast in route, Pacuare River rafting tour or ground transportation to / from the lodge (depending on preference), professional river guides and equipment, 3 exquisite daily meals, bungalow stay, hot beverages and non mixed drinks, lunch along the river, use of private installations at river take-out, return transportation to San José with guide.
*Pick-ups, transfers & drop-offs may also be arranged to and from almost anywhere in the country for an additional rate.
Not Included in the price: Alcoholic beverages and mixed drinks, spa treatments, optional experiences and activities, incidentals.
A private suspension bridge leads from the deck to a platform high in a massive rainforest tree that affords a vertiginous view of the Pacuare River and surrounding jungle. On any given morning or evening, you can spot dozens of bird species in the nearby treetops from that aerial perch.
Tropical greenery surrounds the suite and a tiny stream flows through a channel behind it, so the soothing sound of running water complements the birdsong and tree frog chirps. The spacious bathroom has a solar heated shower and hand-painted ceramic sinks set in a marble counter, whereas the nearby alfresco shower is ensconced in luxuriant vegetation and seems to cascade out of the mountainside.
Each Linda Vista Suite also has a room safe, bathrobes and a telephone to communicate with the main building, as well as an innovative Eco-Concierge, who helps guest with tour reservations, general information and any specific needs. We are certain that the comfort of the Linda Vista Suites, coupled with the lodge’s excellent food and service, offer the most luxurious lodging experience available in the heart of a tropical rain forest.
A luxuriously appointed canopy king size bed or two canopy full size beds with crisp 300-thread Egyptian cotton linens, and superior Beautyrest mattress caters to a serene, restful night’s sleep.
A fully tiled ensuite bathroom offers a nearly 360º view of the jungle. Nearby, a private alfresco heated shower lets you soak up the quiet sounds and invigorating scents of the rainforest. Take a deep breath. Relax. Unwind.
