Waterfall near Pacuare Lodge, Costa RicaEscape with that special someone to one of the most pristine and peaceful places on earth for three days of romance, adventure and immersion in nature. The elegant and secluded Pacuare Lodge – nestled in the Costa Rican rainforest, overlooking the wild and scenic Pacuare River – is the perfect spot to rejuvenate your relationship. And rather than the same old roses and chocolates, we offer torch ginger and passion fruit, birdsong, massages, 1 bottle of sparkling wine and candlelight dinners under a canopy of stars.

The privacy and tranquility are complemented by outdoor adventures in the surrounding wilderness that include a zip-line canopy tour, hiking and rafting on one of the world’s most spectacular white water rivers. It all adds up to the perfect adventure for lovers of the great outdoors.

Day 1: Our guide will meet you at Costa Rica’s Juan Santamaria Airport and accompany you to a boutique hotel in San Jose, where the romance begins and you can rest for the coming adventure. Hotel: Grano de Oro, or similar (subject to availability).

Day 2: Our rafting guide will greet you early for the trip to the Pacuare River. You’ll pass through San Jose, the city of Cartago and verdant farmland before stopping for a typical Costa Rican breakfast. From there, it’s a short drive through Turrialba to Linda Vista, our Pacuare River put-in at the edge of the rainforest. After safety training and a quick introduction to white water rafting, you’ll be paddling through (class II-III) rapids and floating past lush tropical foliage.Pacuare Lodge Rafting After 90 minutes on the river, we arrive at the Pacuare Lodge, where you’ll be greeted with a tropical drink and taken to your spacious jungle bungalow with a river view. After a delicious lunch in the main lodge, you can ascend to the treetops and enjoy a parrot’s-eye view of the rainforest while gliding along cables on our canopy tour. In the evening, its candle light, champagne on ice, tree-frog serenade and delectable dining at our Nairi Awari Restaurant, or in your suite (for an additional fee).

Day 3: Awaken to a symphony of birdsong and enjoy breakfast in the privacy of your suite before embarking on this day’s adventures. After crossing the river on rustic hanging gondola, you’ll hike through forest and farmland to the village of Bajo del Tigre, an agricultural community where our company helps the local school and promotes environmental education and reforestation. You’ll visit the school and a home, where they’ll offer you a typical snack. If you wish, you can plant a tree and contribute to our efforts to reforest areas along the river and off-set carbon generated by our tours. There’s also a stop at a small waterfall where you can take a dip. You’ll be back at the lodge in time for lunch, after which you can relax, get a massage, watch the birds, and enjoy wine and cheese before another award-winning dinner.

Day 4: Enjoy breakfast in your bungalow and a short hike to a waterfall in our private forest reserve before embarking on an unforgettable white water rafting trip. This exciting journey takes you through class III–IV rapids, narrow canyons and forested valleys past waterfalls, exuberant foliage and an array of birdlife that includes toucans, herons and kingfishers. You’ll enjoy a picnic lunch by the riverbank before descending the last stretch of the Pacuare’s amazing scenery. At our take-out in Siquirres, you’ll have a chance to change into dry clothes and enjoy a beer, or soft drink before being driven to your hotel in San Jose, or your next destination.
