Pacuare Lodge, Pacuare River

Your luxury, tailor-made holiday to Costa Rica takes you aboard a raft, through dashing white waters to an astonishing destination. Pacuare Lodge can be reached by jeep, but most people travel via the river – itself an arrival that adds to your sense of adventure.

And what an adventure it is. You’ll sail into dense jungle where trees overhang the swirling water, through surging ravines and past crystal waterfalls. At Pacuare Lodge you’ll be surrounded – literally – by over 740 acres of pristine rainforest wilderness, home to a huge array of multi-coloured birds and forest wildlife.

You’ll also be pampered. Pacuare is the height of luxury, in the treetops. There are private pools, truly romantic honeymoon suites and open air, candlelit dining on the banks of the river itself.

Other itineraries in Costa Rica

  • We have travelled with TUTC six times, the most recent was to New Zealand last year. The trip was very well organised as usual, with excellent accommodation and a wide variety of experiences. We had booked to go to Australia with them this year but due to Covid this was cancelled, Ultimate handled the situation very professionally and promptly refunded the whole of our deposit without any quibble.
