Bed and Breakfast wiht a view. Your jumping-off point for adventure

Close to town and the pacuare river

Get ready for the Pacuare River

When we started offering Pacuare river rafting trips, we realized that many guests were looking for local lodging the night before their trip launched. We’re happy to have recently completed our Turrialba Vista, private guest suites and casitas featuring a stunning view of Lake Angostura, and when the rainforest clouds cooperate, views of Turrialba Volcano.

Close to town, yet in the country

  • This accommodation is best suited for those starting a Pacuare river experience the next day.
  • We love dogs and hope you do too :). You’ll get to meet Rocky, Shaq, and the other dogs that we love dearly. While they’re not allowed at your guest house, they will likely greet you when you arrive, so please keep that in mind.

Accommodations

Our guest suites are the primary accommodates at Turrialba Vista for parties of 1 – 4.

We built both of our casitas in 2022. They have all the amenities as the guest suites including power, bathrooms, and a great view.

The main house is where I live with my family and our loveable dogs. We treat everyone like family so we encourage you to hang out with us and relax inside or on the deck.

Why the Pacuare

“ …perhaps the greatest, family-friendly jungle raft trip in the world.”

My husband and I took a week long adventure tour of Costa Rica! Our guide Ericck, and our rafting guide Arturo were AMAZING! Not only were they so knowledgeable about all things CR, they brought such light and fun energy to every activity! I loved the food prepared at all the lodges. The Rio Vista lodge had an absolutely amazing view and the rooms were just the right amount of luxury while also connecting you to the nature around us. Ziplining and the Tarzan swing were definitely a highlight. I 11/10 recommend booking your next trip to Costa Rica with Pacuare Outdoor Center! 👏🏻👏🏻

We did a 2-day trip (one overnight) with POC, booked by Costa Rica Escapes. This white water rafting trip was absolutely INCREDIBLE. We’re a group of 6 and most of us had never white water rafted before. Luis and Manuel helped us feel prepared and safe for our journey, and the 8 of us had so much fun together! Luis was so encouraging and supportive in the raft with us - we successfully did level 4 rapids even! And Manuel was hilarious and took great photos of us. Thankfully none of us had a fall, but we all felt like we were in very safe and capable hands if one of us had fallen. Luis and Manuel brought us to some awesome swimming spots and viewpoints along the way and took us on 7 zip lines and a Tarzan swing. We also stopped for lunch on the first day and they prepared us a nice spread of sandwich fillings and juice. It was so much fun! We felt safe the whole time and really enjoyed our experience! We can’t wait to go white water rafting again. The POC itself is beautiful, and the team cooked us delicious dinner and breakfast at the center. We had so much fun hanging out together at the lodge and enjoying the scenery. Before we parted ways, the team brought us to a center to shower, change, and enjoy lunch. They once again prepared a great spread of food to make wraps. Here, Manuel also showed us the photos he took and we were able to purchase all of them and get a digital folder with the photos.

My wife and I had a fabulous time on an 8-day kayaking adventure with the Pacuare Outdoor Center. We were treated like family by the highly skilled and knowledgeable guides, and they are great chefs to boot. The paddling and scenery were out of this world. We felt very safe both on the river and tree-topping on their zip lines. The accommodations were outstanding with great views of the surrounding rain forest. Everything was very well organized with a full but enjoyable schedule.

Pacuare Outdoor Center gave me the best experience of my trip to Costa Rica. Tom and his family were so welcoming, we felt like we were family. They provided a full on end - to - end adventure experience that I would highly recommend to anyone. I will definitely be back!

Visitar Pacuare Outdoor Center ha sido definitivamente una de las mejores experiencias que he vivido. Me permitió poder conectar con la naturaleza, mientras al mismo tiempo experimentaba la actividad de rafting. Los guías son excelentes, llenos de experiencia y anécdotas, la comida es deliciosa, y por último, el lodge es perfecto si te gustan los lugares rústicos, y alejados de la ciudad.
