Pacuare Lodge

Last updated: 27 December, 2023

Getting to this plush rainforest retreat is half the adventure. Arrival is by white-water raft – on a rushing, rapid-run river through a plunging forested gorge. Despite the remoteness, sleeping is as luxe as wilderness gets. Suites fitted with honey-coloured hardwoods open onto balcony terraces with private plunge pools and sweeping rainforest views.

There’s a gorgeous forest-view infinity pool and a big menu of wilderness excursions, and all is sustainable – from the on-site generated electricity and the construction materials (cut from reforested lumber on Pacuare’s replanted reserve) to the extensive support for local campesino and indigenous communities.

Surrounding area

The rainforest around Pacuare is rich in wildlife – from rare endemic Central American birds to primates and felines. Wildlife trails lead from the lodge through the forest and excellent guides offer birdwatching and canopy viewing tours.

There are unspoilt and barely-visited waterfalls nearby and as well as white-water rafting, the lodge organises canyoning and visits to indigenous villages.
