Pacuare Lodge -One of NatGeo’s Unique Lodges of the World

3 Reasons Why We’re One of National Geographic Unique Lodges of the World

Back in 2015, National Geographic put together a collection of boutique hotels in a variety of unparalleled places all around the world, as their contribution to world-class traveling. Costa Rica is a proud member of this list with three incredible lodges, one of them being Pacuare Lodge.

These are 3 reasons why we are Pacuare Lodge was selected as one of National Geographic Unique Lodges of the World:

Minimal Environmental Impact

At Pacuare Lodge, we are committed to sustainability and keep that in mind in everything we do. The main lodge and bungalows were built from the wood that came from a local reforestation program, rather than using Pacuare’s protected trees. Its surroundings are mostly untouched and undeveloped, and so is the tropical wilderness of the area, which allows for great biodiversity, including several endangered species.

The lodge operates under many green practices that include creating clean energy form our own hydroelectric turbine system and 100 solar panels. Additionally, we run environmental education programs to teach kids in schools nearby about the importance of protecting the forest, conserve water sources and more.

Unique Experiences with Nature

Customized experiences are our area of expertise. We want our guests to truly be in touch with the beauty of the nature that surrounds us, while still feeling embraced by comfort. Without even leaving your bungalow, you will feel the closest you’ve ever felt to nature, as you watch sloths and toucans from the privacy of your room. You can also spend your days hiking routes that are used daily by the Cabécar community, getting a shot of adrenaline down the rapids of Pacuare river along with a local white-water rafting guide, rappelling down canyons and much, much more.
