The Costa Rica Rainforest Eco Lodge is perched on a bank of the Pacuare River with a privileged view of that pristine waterway and the surrounding tropical foliage. The Jaguar Villa is our most luxurious suite. It was designed to give guests the experience of being in a tropical rain forest without sacrificing comfort.

At the Costa Rica Rainforest Eco Lodge, a simple yet elegant ambiance combines tasteful details such as hardwood floors and teak furniture with ample open areas for admiring the surrounding nature, including a terrace complete with a spring-fed pool, outdoor showers and spacious bathrooms. The sounds of running water and the songs of birds and tree frogs mix with the colors and aromas of the rain forest to create the unforgettable sensory experience of a stay in the Jaguar Villa!

  • The Costa Rica Rainforest Eco Lodge is nestled in a rainforest overlooking the Pacuare River, which National Geographic has listed as one of the world’s top ten scenic rivers.
  • Getting to this exquisite Costa Rica Rainforest Eco Lodge is half the adventure, since you arrive and depart as part of a multi-day rafting tour on the Pacuare River.
  •  The luxuriant rainforest that surrounds the Costa Rica Rainforest Eco Lodge is a private reserve that forms part of the largest network of protected areas in Central America, covering more than 1.2 million acres of tropical wilderness.
  • You will have the opportunity to experience an unforgettable meal in the Nest: a platform 60 feet above the jungle floor in the branches of century-old Kapok tree – considered a sacred tree by the ancient Mayans.
  • All of the staff at the Costa Rica Rainforest Eco Lodge are from local communities, and the friendly, casual atmosphere has been cited by guests as one of the most pleasant aspects of their stay.

In Harmony With Nature

The Costa Rica Rainforest Eco Lodge was built with a minimum impact on the river and rainforest site where it is located. Lanterns and candles provide light, as there is no electricity at the lodge. No trees were cut to build the bungalows and main lodge. Lumber was purchased from a sustainable reforestation project operated by small farmers. The roofs are made from palm leaves installed by Cabecar Indians living in the area using their traditional style. Aventuras Naturales was the first adventure travel company to acquire parcels of primary forest in this area solely for the purpose of conservation Over the years, we’ve purchased 340 hectares (840 acres) of primary rain forest along the Pacuare River for conservation and in order to offset the atmospheric carbon created by our vehicles, which makes our tours carbon-neutral.

Our Professional Staff

A spirit of adventure and true concern for the environment are just two of the driving forces of the staff at Aventuras Naturales. Our bilingual guides embody this spirit of adventure and demonstrate their concern for our precious environment on every trip to the wilds of Costa Rica’s tropical rainforests, pristine beaches and beautiful rivers. They are some of the best in the field, highly experienced, professional guides who are certified in first aid, CPR and swift-water rescue training. Many of our guides have additional certifications such as wilderness first aid and wilderness first responder. Our professional office staff can develop custom programs and itineraries to meet the needs of the most demanding clients, whether couples or larger groups.

At the Costa Rica Rainforest Eco Lodge, we are dedicated to sustainable tourism, which means limiting the negative impacts of our operations while supporting conservation and providing benefits for nearby communities. This policy is by no means limited to the lodge – it extends through our entire company, from the main office to the warehouses where we store our rafts.

The following are some of the steps we’ve taken, or are taking to improve our relationship with the environment:

  • The Costa Rica Rainforest Eco Lodge was built with a minimum impact on the surrounding forest and river. No trees were cut to accommodate the bungalows and main lodge, which are built of lumber from a reforestation project run by small farmers. The thatch roofs were made by local Cabécar Indians in their traditional style using palm leaves collected in our forest reserve.
  • Our adventures partner was the first adventure travel company to acquire parcels of primary forest in this area solely for the purpose of conservation Over the years, we’ve purchased 340 hectares (840 acres) of primary rain forest along the Pacuare River for conservation and in order to offset the atmospheric carbon created by our vehicles, which makes our tours carbon-neutral. Some of that forest was in danger of being cleared before we purchased it, but is now strictly protected in order to conserve the flora and fauna that lives there.. Because our goal is preservation of this untouched virgin rainforest, no visitors are allowed into this area.
  • The lodge’s bathrooms are equipped with biodegradable soap and shampoo and the water for their showers is solar heated. All the lodge’s wastewater flows into state-of-the-art septic systems to avoid pollution of the nearby river.
  • The bungalows are illuminated with lanterns and candles and what little electricity used at the lodge is clean energy generated by a turbine in a nearby stream.
  • We use organic products as much as possible in meals served at the lodge and on rafting tours.
  • With the help of our guests, we are reforesting former pastures in the Pacuare River watershed with native tree species to offset carbon emissions by our vehicles and to improve the area’s environmental health. As those trees grow, they will absorb tons of atmospheric carbon while providing habitat for an array of wildlife.
  • We are helping biologists to study of jaguars in the forests along the Pacuare River by providing them with food, lodging, and logistical support, and by the purchasing digital cameras that researchers place on game trails to photograph those shy animals.
  • We are reintroducing howler monkeys, which were wiped out in the area by indigenous hunters years ago, to our forest reserve. We rescued the first troop of 8 monkeys that we reintroduced from an island in a nearby river where they’d become stranded after a flood.
  • Our rigorous recycling program extends from the main office to the lodge. At the lodge, we compost organic waste and separate recyclable materials for transport to recycling companies. For lunches served during our Pacuare River trips, we use reusable plates, cups and cutlery rather than the disposable plates and cups used by other rafting companies.
  • We are installing a bio-digester to produce gas from organic waste from the Pacuare Lodge’s kitchen. Gas produced will be used for cooking and heating water for bungalows.
  • In the company’s laundry, we conserve water and use only biodegradable detergents. All the laundry is rafted out every day to the company`s warehouse, located in the river take out at the Siquirres town.
  • We are trying to get the Costa Rican government to award the Pacuare River a Blue Flag, in recognition of its clean environment and we are in the process of obtaining the CST ( Certification for Sustainable Tourism).

We believe responsible tourism should benefit and respect local communities.

Our Community Support Program works directly with the people and institutions in communities near the Pacuare River put-in and our lodge. Infrastructure in these isolated areas is scarce and poorly maintained by the government. We also accept donations for the schools, which are transferred in their entirety to the school boards (no administrative or other fees are deducted), who use the funds for much-needed materials and student services. For larger donations by people going on one of our overnight Pacuare trips, we will arrange a personal visit on horseback to the Bajo del Tigre School to meet the teacher and schoolchildren.

Socially Responsible Tourism

Sustainable tourism should improve the lives of local people, and we’ve made donations and initiated projects in the communities nearest to the lodge. Infrastructure in our remote area is sparse and poorly maintained, and there are few employment opportunities, which is why we make a point of hiring local people. Here’s what we’ve done so far:

  • All lodge staff is from nearby communities and 95% of our rafting guides are from Turrialba, the closest city to the lodge.
  • We donate school supplies and other materials to three primary schools in the communities nearest to the lodge and we accept donations from our guests, transferring them to the schools in their entirety (no administrative fees deducted).
  • We are helping an isolated Cabécar Indian community near the lodge to install a potable water system.
  • The lunch spot on the Pacuare River the we use on our tours is rented from a Cabécar family, who feed the organic waste to pigs.
  • We provide environmental education and explain our sustainable practices to local people, our staff and our guests.
  • We purchase food and other goods from local providers and support organic agriculture.
