Adventure in Nature at Pacuare Lodge

Located on the banks of the Pacuare River and nestled into Costa Rica’s richly diverse rainforest, we have the perfect setting for comfort, luxury, and beauty amid a relaxing environment. We also have all the ingredients for adventure!

Whitewater Rafting the Pacuare River

08Our signature activity and our main reason for existing is whitewater rafting on the Pacuare River. It is no exaggeration when we say that this is one of the most beautiful rivers in the world. This crystal-clear, class-III and IV river alternates periods of calm with short, exciting rapids, whisking you through primary rainforest laden with emerald green vegetation and punctuated with bright tropical flowers. While witnessing cascades tumble from riverside cliffs into the Pacuare,  you’ll be enjoying Costa Rica’s countryside in a way few people ever do.

Canopy Tour in Costa Rica’s Rainforests

03If you’re looking for some higher ground after rafting, check out our canopy tour. Our in-house engineers have designed a course of thirteen platforms high in the treetops. You’ll glide, soar, and fly along zip-lines between the platforms, giving you a bird’s-eye perspective of the rain-forest. Most of the rainforest’s activity takes place in the canopy, where flora and fauna alike thrive in ideal conditions.

When you’re on our canopy tour, look for Gerardo, the engineering genius who conceived and built this tour. Gerardo is currently our head canopy guide and would love to hear from you!


03Beauty and adventure come together in this tour that combines climbing, rappelling, and hiking with Costa Rica’s gorgeous countryside. In our Tesorito Creek canyoning tour, you’ll explore a remote jungle canyon, descend waterfalls, swing through the jungle, and rappel down sheer rock cliffs.

Previous experience is not necessary. Our expert guides will outfit you with the latest safety gear, teach you how to approach this activity, and allow you to practice on some smaller walls.

At Your Own Pace

We recommend exploring our little piece of paradise in the way you feel most comfortable. Whether birdwatching with our eagle-eyed guides, exploring the culinary talents of our staff, enjoying delicious Costa Rican coffee on our deck, or getting your blood pumping on one of our adventure tours, we are here to make sure that your stay with us is truly one of a kind.
