Pacuare River Lodge

About Us

What makes Pacuare so special ?

The Pacuare River not only offers the best whitewater rafting sections in Costa Rica with a distance of over 26 miles, but also its surroundings that make this a paradise on earth. The river valley is surrounded by endless tropical jungle, a region so vast that it’s connected to the largest portion of the uninterrupted tropical rainforest that stretches into Panamanian territory (La Amistad National Park). Combine this with amazing Class II – IV rapids and you will find the dream destination for rafters and kayakers like.

      Amazing travel

      We booked a kayak/raft trip with Green Frog Adventures and couldn't be happier with the way it went. Travis was great in arranging a private trip exactly how we wanted. We did a day trip to the river followed by a 3 day trip with a rest day in between. We stayed at the River Lodge for the 3 day trip. It is amazing, very calm and serene. We wanted to stay forever. The white water was also great. Our guides Moises, Manfred and Fernando were really great, they made sure we had everything we needed and made it down the river safely. I'm a guide in the US so I know the right thing to do and they went above and beyond. I recommend booking with Green Frog or Pacuare River Lodge.


        Wonderful nature

        The Pacuare River Lodge itself is a great place. It is very simple, but you have everything you need: toilets, showers, common areas and a room. By the way: a towel is provided in the room. We loved the nature: especially a family of birds building their nests and singing, and the hidden waterfall, where you can swim. We really regret not being there for 1 more night! It felt so good to be disconnected from the "real world". Our guide and the rest of the staff at the Pacuare River Lodge were very friendly, funny, and great cooks. Thank you all for the wonderful experience!


          A very special place

          So for Pacuare River Lodge, we were met by OG and after a very thorough briefing we set off on our raft to reach PL. A quick stop for a swim in a waterfall pool and then on to camp, my photos don't do the Lodge or the surroundings real justice. This is a very special Lodge, the entire team is simply the most welcoming and friendly group we have experienced in Costa Rica. The whole experience was for us as good as it gets. OG, Pablo, the best rafting guides, Estefan's great beer and winery to boot, Luiz, Herardo, and Alonso, great hikes and zip lines. thanks sir

            La ubicación en medio de la selva es espectacular. La atención del staff para que estuviésemos a gusto de 10. Hicimos el rafting con el guía Ronnie y fue un gran compañero de aventura. El resto de guías muy implicados también con que todo saliese bien. Experiencia inolvidable.

              De las mejores experiencias de Costa Rica, absolutamente recomendable

              No me gusta regalar un 10 sino se merece, pero este sitio lo tiene todo. Personal excepcional, una ubicación maravillosa, comida casera, precio fantástico… una experiencia auténtica y todo bien explicado y detallado desde el principio, gente seria y comprometida. El rafting es lo máximo.

                Desconexión en medio de la naturalez

                Esta fue una magnífica aventura! Nuestro guías Michael y Walter fueron fantásticos y nos hicieron pasar un magnífico día en Pacuare. La idea de entrar haciendo rafting al hotel (1h el día 1 y 3 horas al segundo día) es muy divertida. El hotel se encuentra en la ladera del río, es el cuadro perfecto para relajarse y olvidarse de la civilización. No hay internet (salvo si eres Movistar), ni wifi, solo el contacto estrecho con tus guías y los demás huéspedes. Durante el día no tienes tiempo a aburrirte ya que te llevan a la catarata, te puedes bañar en las pozas del río o relajarte admirando la naturaleza del lugar. Los mismos guías que hacen rafting, se convierten después en unos magnificos chefs que cocinan delicioso. Hay comida más que suficiente para repetir cuantas veces quieras. En fin, el lugar ofrece una desconexión sin precedentes en un entorno selvático.
