how to get to rios lodge
rafting or hiking
Getting here is an adventure! The Rios Lodge is located on the Caribbean side of Costa Rica, on a private rainforest reserve of 1,000 hectares in Limon Province. The lodge sits right beside the pristine Pacuare River and immediately upstream of the beginning of the renowned Pacuare Gorge white water section. There is no vehicle access to the lodge. All guests, staff, and supplies get to the lodge either by raft or by hiking in on foot. Guests can raft into the lodge on the gentler river section, and hike out to avoid the bigger whitewater below the lodge. This is perfect for families with participants too young to raft the lower Pacuare section. Learn more in our FAQ.
Discover the Rios Lodge Difference
Rios Lodge is much more than a great place to stay for a cool Costa Rica adventure vacation! We have sustainability and conservation at the forefront of everything we do. Our mission is to expand conservation partnerships and projects in the Pacuare River Basin, while being regenerative stewards here at the Lodge. We are supporting science projects in the primary rainforest properties, helping to reforest secondary rainforest pasture land, and are developing biodiversity metrics to steward the conservation legacy of Rafael (Rafa) Gallo in the Pacuare River watershed since 1985.
