To travel through Costa Rica, the land of pura vida, one inherently desires to tread lightly. For the discerning traveler, the ultimate luxury is found in harmonious natural experiences that bring balance and relaxation. Pacuare Lodge stakes its claim at that rare moment when man finds peace in nature.

Property Details

The lifelong dream of Roberto Fernandez, Pacuare Lodge has perfected the art of natural hospitality. Specializing in “more than tourism,” the property brings visitors as close to the unspoiled river and rainforest ecosystem as possible, while maintaining high standards of comfort and service.

All rooms offer views from tranquil terraces, and simple décor to maintain the harmonious ambiance. The four large Linda Vista, or “beautiful view,” suites overlook the Pacuare River and the rainforest. Airy bedding catches the natural light and breeze, while the elegant wood décor blends with the views.

The Canopy Suite offers a 180-degree view of the surrounding rainforest, as well as a private suspension bridge to a treetop platform for a more intimate view of the jungle. Guests can make the most of the seclusion with a private spring-fed pool, sun deck, hammock, and terrace.

The most luxurious accommodation at Pacuare Lodge, the Jaguar Villa sits on the bank of the river with sleeping space for the whole family. It also has a private spring-fed pool, as well as tubs that overlook the river.

The fresh ingredients and passionate preparation of the culinary staff at the lodge earns constant praise, even without a celebrity chef. In addition to natural harmony, the lodge is devoted to social well-being, and trains local residents to prepare healthy, locally-sourced, flavorful dishes that leave guests utterly satisfied. Romantic dinners can be prepared in secluded areas of the lodge, including The Nest, a dining platform nestled amid the treetops 60 feet off the ground.

Activities at the lodge range from adrenaline-pumping adventure sports to spa treatments that will leave guests languid and restful. Try white water rafting, canyoning, or the canopy adventure if you prefer high octane exploration. Visit the Jawa Juü Spa if a rhythmic massage using products derived from the local flora sounds more like your idea of communing with nature.

The entire area rests in a protected zone, so wherever you step, you will experience a unique taste of nature. Visits to indigenous communities can also be arranged by your Ker & Downey luxury travel consultant.
