Pacuare Rafting & Eco Lodge – 2 Day

Pacuare Rafting & Riverside Eco Lodge!

The Pacuare River Eco Lodge 2-Day Trip gives you two incredible days of tropical white water rafting and a night at the Rios Tropicales Lodge. Treat yourself to an exceptional adventure vacation experience combining rafting with a stay at our remote ecolodge, nestled in the rainforest on the banks of the Pacuare River. The Rios Tropicales Lodge, complete with hydro-powered electricity, is a model of ecotourism and deluxe accommodations.


From our ecolodge’s remote, riverside location, you can enjoy ziplining through the canopy (additional cost), rainforest hikes with naturalist guides, self-guided walks to waterfalls and pools, relaxing in a hammock overlooking the beautiful Pacuare River, and birdwatching. Dine in the open air with wine and exceptional meals, more stars than you can imagine, and the vibrant sounds of the jungle.


Rated one of the top rivers in the world, you’ll experience the intimate nature of the rainforest as you raft right through it. The warm water, cascading waterfalls, and opulently lush rainforest with its brilliantly colored plants, animals, and birds indulge your senses on every level. Add in two sections of the exciting Class III-IV white water rapids and you have a tropical adventure packed with rich experiences that last long after you’ve returned home.
