Adventures Experiences Await You at Pacuare Lodge
White Water Rafting
Experience the whitewater magic as you discover the excitement of thrilling rapids coursing through rugged canyons and verdant tropical rainforests on one of the most exotic and scenic rivers in the world.
This adrenaline-pumping excursion takes you through Class-III and -IV rapids, past spectacular landscapes, under tumbling cascades, and all the way to the town of Siquirres.
Depending on the river’s water level, tour is approximately 5 hours roundtrip to Pacuare Lodge.
Does the thought of navigating Class-IV rapids seem too daunting?
Don’t worry, we have something a bit less extreme: this outdoor adventure lets you paddle down a relatively calm stretch of the Pacuare River in an inflatable kayak.
You’ll enjoy gorgeous riparian scenery, spot some of the local bird life, and paddle through Class-II rapids.
Tesorito Creek flows out of the mountains behind the Pacuare Lodge into a narrow gorge in the midst of the rainforest.
We’ve created a fun outdoor adventure that includes rock climbing, a descent down a small waterfall, sliding along cables, swinging through the jungle like Tarzan, and rappelling down a 30-meter (100-foot) rock face.
The result is a light but exhilarating adventure in an idyllic, natural setting.
After a 15 minute hike into our private reserve, you’ll reach the first platform: be ready to enter an unspoiled realm of magnificent scenery.
Then you’re off to face the exotic beauty of the rainforest head on. This adventure tour offers dramatic views, rappelling down towering trees and sliding along cables from tree to tree as you descend the jungle-cloaked mountain toward the Pacuare Lodge.
This tour takes around two hours and may only be booked as part of a Pacuare Lodge package.
Romantic Dinners and Spa Treatments at Pacuare Lodge
To make your stay at the Pacuare Lodge even more magical, consider booking a romantic dinner alongside the Pacuare River. We’ll set up an elegant, private table for you near the river’s edge, lit by a fire pit and candles and surrounded by nature.
You can savor an exquisite meal under the stars, with a small fire crackling nearby and the soothing sounds of flowing water and tree frog chirps.
These dinners are also available for incentive groups, families, or others who desire a more private, unique dining experience.
Jawa Juü Spa is a unique experience for the mind, body, and soul. We harness the rainforest’s natural energy to create a healing environment unlike any other.
The name Jawa Juü is derived from a Cabécar term meaning “the house of the healer.”
Our spa treatments integrate the wisdom of ancient cultures and their traditions of spirituality and healing
