Stayed at Pacuare Lodge for 3 nights. (If you are going elsewhere after or before Pacuare, remember to pack a bag only for your stay at Pacuare. The rest of your luggage will be stored away from the lodge)We rafted in and can say it was adequate for all ages. The food was lovely and it varied every evening. We...

We took the whole family to the lodge. Our boys loved it. We only spent 1 night and wish we could have stayed for 2. The food was very yummy and the staff was great. We stayed in the jungle rooms. We had our room with a king size bed and the boys had a room right next to us...

I told my husband if I had read the fine print, I might not have booked our stay here. Somehow I neglected to take on board the fact that arriving to Pacuare involved a 5 km. Raft trip. And departure from Pacuare involved a 25 km.raft trip, up to class IV rapids. And by the end of both these trips,...

We were looking for a nice location to celebrate our 10th anniversary. After looking in multiple countries/destinations, we settled on the Pacuare Lodge. We did the 4 day/3 night "Romance" package, staying in the Linda Vista Suite (Puma). For those that are not aware, the only real way to the lodge is via white water rafting. From the moment you...

This place is one of the most amazing places I have ever visited. The staff was attentive and outstanding, the accommodations were superb, the food was delicious, the activities were well coordinated and organized. Everything was perfect. I would not have changed a thing.

Excellent tour, raft trip, food, guides and staff. Should have stayed at the Lodge one additional night. First day was mostly driving to get to the launch site (from San Jose). However, that being said the ~1.5 hour raft "float" was enjoyable. The Lodge area was incredibly beautiful. Would be a heat sport of a romantic adventure. The staff does...

My boyfriend and I stayed here for two nights and three days, and agree that it is one of the most spectacular places to which we've ever traveled (50+ countries). We are already looking forward to going back for a longer stay! This lodge seamlessly integrates luxury with nature, and is genuinely committed to the sustainable policies that govern much...

I can't begin to even tell you what an incredible place this is! We stayed in Lora in the Linda Vista Suites. You have four of those to chose from and i believe Lora has the best privacy! Nobody can see in to your deck or pool area and it is AMAZING! The staff is incredibly sweet and the activities...

My wife and I spent 4 nights here in January 2014 and were pleased at every turn -- even at that we feel we didn't have enough time there. The staff are incredibly friendly, happy and clearly love their jobs. You start (hopefully) by rafting in and then your raft and kayak guides become your waiters and guides for the...

The experience is a real adventure: white-water rafting, zip-lines, rappelling down canyons. The bungalows are luxurious, but rustic: no electricity (but romantics candles), four-poster beds (with mosquito netting), indoor and outdoor showers (only difference being one has a roof over it), no walls (but privacy provided by distance, river sounds, and curtains). Not your usual hotel, so if you aren't...
