Didn't know what to expect given that you must raft in and out, and not having any electricity in the cabins. It is first class all the way. The staff is extremely friendly. The food is outstanding -- hard to believe that...

We did a three day trip to Pacuare lodge the first week of November. While this is the rainy season, it only rained in the afternoon or evening so it did not interrupt our activities. The main advantage of this time was that it is a slow time so there were no crowds. This place has great accommodations and food...

Everything about Pacuare was above and beyond my expectations. Yes, it's a little expensive, but I thought it was completely worth the price. The guides are wonderful, friendly, helpful people, who really go out of their way to make sure you are enjoying your stay. The rafting trip was so much fun, if you have the option to travel in...

My family of 4 went to this lodge two years ago when we visited Costa Rico. This was our third stop in the country and the most expensive, by a significant amount.

As the owner of the Pacuare Lodge, I am very sorry that your experience at our lodge wasn’t what you’d hoped for. Though the vast majority of our guests have great things to say about the Pacuare Lodge, we take your critique very seriously. Our lodge’s remote location deep in the jungle makes it a very unique place, but it...
