Pacuare Lodge

Eco Jungle Lodge, Featuring Ultimate Rafting Adventure.


Rate per person, per night from $349

Set along the Pacuare River, on the Caribbean side of Talamanca Mountains range, the Pacuare Jungle Lodge is a unique and adventurous property in the secluded jungle. For families with teens, couples, and groups who are adventurous, love rafting, and seek enriching nature experience—this is the place to be!

The property itself is 850 acres of the pristine rainforest with 19 bungalows set along the river. Guest rooms offer privacy, while decor is understated and elegant to blend with the natural surroundings. Rooms don’t have electricity, so there are few amenities available. In the evenings bungalows are illuminated with warm candlelight. They are equipped with a safe and a telephone to communicate with the lobby. The main lodge features minimal electric lighting, and there is WiFi in the office and an outlet to recharge small electrical devices.

Guests will enjoy a full meal plan including breakfast, lunch, and dinner at the on-site restaurant, Nairi Awari Restaurant. Due to the very remote location of Pacuare Lodge, they offer limited menu options with very fresh local ingredients. Pacuare Lodge has a diverse selection of alcohol available (at an additional cost).

The lodge offers a number of different activity options to be added that include zip lining, hikes to a local indigenous village, birdwatching, and special dinners. Pacuare Lodge is also deeply committed to sustainability including producing their own (very limited) power, nature conservation efforts, and deep ties to the community. They are also certified through the Costa Rican Tourism Board with a Level 5 (highest available) CST (Certificate of Sustainable Tourism).

There are number of options available for getting to Pacuare Lodge; you can get there with round-trip land transportation, or select one of the more adventurous ways, including taking a boat to and/or from the lodge on the Siquirres River. If doing this, there are a few very important points to consider: you must pack lightly, carrying nothing larger than an approved carry-on suitcase because your belongings will travel in dry bags with the guides down the river. If you are returning to your same hotel in San Jose, that hotel can store your additional luggage. And if you are not going back to San Jose, Pacuare Lodge will store the rest of your luggage in their warehouse in Siquirres.


The raft out is the best part of the Pacuare river rafting experience. It’s quite a bit longer and features great class III-IV rapids and a number of waterfalls, a great swimming hole, and lunch on the river bank.
