The Pacuare Lodge

As the raft shimmied around another diamond shaped rock, I faintly heard the rumble of a class four river rapid ahead. The mountains stood quietly, butterflies flew sporadically, and a weeping waterfall poured from a gash in the rock. And then, there it was – slowly appearing around the bend, in the heart of the pumping Rio Pacuare, 840 acres of unrivaled beauty. This is Costa Rica’s Pacuare Lodge – your most intimate rainforest experience!

Nestled above one of the most scenic rivers in the world according to National Geographic, The Pacuare Lodge goes out of their way to give you out of the way, constantly redefining the thick line between luxury and adventure. Boasting a variety of villas including the Canopy Suite, accessible by a private suspension bridge, and the charming Linda Vista Honeymoon Suite, perfectly perched on a forested ridge; you’re either staying at the Pacuare Lodge or standing in its shadows.

GETTING THERE

AN EXCITING EXPERIENCE, FROM BEGINNING TO END.

Getting to the Pacuare Lodge is an adventure within itself! The day begins with a local breakfast against a backdrop of Costa Rica’s rigid landscape. You’ll enjoy the traditional dish Gallo Pinto, consisting of scrambled eggs, rice mixed with black beans, served with cheese, corn tortilla, and fruits – pineapples, mangoes, and bananas! Then, for two hours, you’ll glide happily over rocks, paddle in hand, chanting “Pura Vida” as your raft sashays from rapid to rapid splashing its way down a jewel-green stream! The adventure caps off with an individual staff meet and greet, a refreshing citrus drink, freshly baked banana bread, and a variety of local chocolate neatly placed in a heart-shaped dish inside your private villa.

THE LINDA VITSA HONEYMOON SUITE

COSTA RICA’S MOST UNIQUE RESORT IS READY FOR YOUR RETURN.

With many bungalows and suites to choose from, it’s hard to go wrong when selecting your accommodation and rather difficult to miss the eco-friendly efforts within. At the heart of the Pacuare Lodge lies a strong commitment to sustainable tourism. All rooms are built with lumber from a reforestation project administered by small farmers, allowing for minimal impact on the surrounding river and forest. Bathrooms are fully equipped with biodegradable amenities and solar heated water. However, the best part is the lodge’s lack of electricity. All villas and common areas of the main lodge are illuminated with lanterns after sunset instantly creating a candle-lit oasis and the beginning of a romantic evening. The Pacuare Lodge is one place where having no power will be the best part of your night!

My suite was impeccably tasteful, with its natural design and polished décor. The Linda Vista Honeymoon Suite will offer a level of luxury that contradicts its remote location. Here’s what you’ll experience: 230 square meters spanning across the rainforest, a king-sized canopy bed, an open-plan living room dotted with leather goods, a spacious bathroom with indoor and outdoor showers, an expansive deck for relaxing, a private dipping pool fed by natural spring water, and views of the Pacuare River from every angle – the bedroom, living room, shower and deck!

CULINARY EXPERIENCE 

PACUARE LODGE. EVEN BETTER THAN ADVERTISED.

After your first meal at the Pacuare Lodge, you’ll quickly develop the impression that the lodge’s food is merely the product of their own love for cooking and desire to craft memorable dishes inspired by rich flavors and local ingredients, perfectly matched with a refined presentation.

To enhance your stay at the Pacuare Lodge, reserve a table for two at the “Nest” Canopy Restaurant. The “Nest” is a platform 60 feet high in a tree-top where guest can enjoy a variety of meals. The best part about it… you arrive by zip lining from a distant platform then rappelling back to the lodge once done!

Dinning can also take place in your private suite, in the garden, on the terrace, or along the riverbank at night for a more intimate experience with nature, elegantly lit by a fire pit and candles.
