“Costa Rica’s most intimate rainforest experience”
One of the world’s 24 top Ecolodges and member of the National Geographic Unique Lodges of the world. The Pacuare Lodge is nestled in a rainforest overlooking the Pacuare River, which National Geographic has listed as one of the world 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.
There is no electricity or A/C at the lodge. All the suites are open-air with screens and use candle light to create the ultimate jungle lodge experience. Wi-Fi and electricity are available at reception.
If you are not interested in rafting, you can drive, fly or take a helicopter into the lodge.
How about having dinner in the rainforest canopy? Then you have “The Nest”
“Just as the birds that abound at Pacuare Lodge make their nests high in the trees, we have built our own nest: a platform 20 meters (60 feet) high in a treetop, where guests can enjoy a meal in a uniquely splendid setting. The culinary adventure begins as you glide down a 130-meter cable to the platform high in the branches of a Ceiba: a tree that was sacred to the ancient Mayans. There, you will find everything you need for an unforgettable dinner – an atmosphere of candles shimmering like fireflies amidst the branches, the delicate sound of a breeze blowing through the surrounding foliage, the soft rumble of the Pacuare River below, and the aroma of jungle blossoms, all at 60 feet (20 meters) above the ground! The details are yours for the choosing – the menu, the wine – but the setting is incomparable and the experience is guaranteed to remain etched in your memory forever.”
