‘Luxury Caribbean Adventure’ is perfect for:
Nature-loving couples, families with older children, or groups who want to experience off-the-beaten-path luxury
Costa Rica’s Caribbean is ripe with opportunities to enjoy both an off-the-grid experience and a peaceful beachtown atmosphere. With fewer visitors a year, less noise, and expansive views, it’s a great location to discover the best the Caribbean has to offer and escape into a luxurious jungle experience.
Pacuare: A Jungle Retreat
After a short overlay in the city, take a scenic route across the mountain ranges, national parks, and farmlands of Costa Rica’s countryside. Dive into the lush jungle of the Caribbean plains to stay in one of the most secluded hotels in the country.
Listed by National Geographic as one their Unique Lodges of the World, Pacuare Lodge is the perfect place to disconnect from the outside world in your own cabin. It’s a high-end accommodation with plenty of opportunities to relax and on-site activities to get your fix of adrenaline.
Sit back in your terrace while listening to the river gliding by, or spot the birds singing in the trees that surround you. To finish the stay with a blast, prepare to head out on a rafting adventure across level III-IV rapids. Follow the river, spot wildlife, and waterfalls, and enjoy a great adventure before heading to the beach.
Aguas Claras: Beachtown Fun
Leave behind the secluded Pacuare Lodge and the rainforest, and continue to Aguas Claras, to the south of Puerto Viejo. The hotel is in a calm area surrounded by gardens and trees, conveniently located only steps away from the beach.
Enjoy the unique Caribbean-Victorian architecture and locally sourced decorations as well as the vegetation peeking out of every corner. Take the short walk to the beach and relax under the sun or practice watersports. Attend the yoga classes every morning to balance your body and mind.
Aguas Claras is a great combination of exercise and relaxation by the ocean. In the end, return home with memories that will last a lifetime.
