Pacuare Lodge rests on a lush hillside overlooking the Pacuare River, within 25,000 acres of pristine rainforest.
Pacuare Lodge is an eco-retreat; solar systems heat the lodge’s water and generate its electricity. Electrical outlets are available only at reception. Electric lighting is limited to a few hours before sunrise and after sunset, allowing you to see the stars clearly. Wi-Fi is tenuous, and available only at reception.
Getting here is an adventure; most guests arrive by raft, guided by expert pilots along the river’s Class III rapids. Because arrival and departure each take most of a day, a 2-night minimum is recommended. Most of our clients choose stay 2 to 3 nights.
The minimum age for rafting is 12-years-old and minimum age for guests arriving by road is 7-years-old.
The Nairi Awari Restaurant serves candle-lit meals emphasizing organic, locally-grown ingredients.
Among the lodge’s other amenities are a bar, massage rooms, gardens, and wildlife observation decks.
On-site adventure options range from kayak excursions and horseback rides to zip-line tours and rappelling. White water rafting is, of course, also a highlight.
The 20 bungalow-style suites and private villas feature open-air floorplans, vaulted cane ceilings, natural wood, window screens, and bed-canopy netting.
Some upper category accommodations add plunge pools, outdoor showers, and living rooms.
Although staying at Pacuare is no hardship, you’ll need to adapt your expectations to the environment; you can post those photos to Instagram when you emerge from the forest, and the few days of disconnection will do you good.
Guestrooms do not have in-room power outlets, electric lights, or air conditioning.
