Kapu Tree House

With construction completed in 2020, The Kapu Tree House is a true Caribbean paradise just a minute from Punta Uva, perhaps the most famous beach in Costa Rica. Located conveniently on the same road as the finishing point for our Pacuare river trips, The Beach Tree House is best suited for those finishing one of our Pacuare river experiences such as the 3-Day Adventure or 2-Day Pacuare River Trip.

A true tree house

Some “tree houses” are really just homes on stilts. Others are lofted uncomfortable tree forts twenty feet off the ground. Ours is neither. This is a studio that’s built 100 feet up in a tree. There’s a bathroom with a hot shower, and even a rappelling option to get down quickly – or use the hanging bridge to easily walk to the ground.

One minute from the beach

We’re right at Punta Uva, our beautiful local beach. The town of Puerto Viejo is just ten minutes away and nice restaurants are even closer, just 5 to 7 minutes (depending on if you rappel or use the hanging bridge to get to the ground).

Kick back and soak in the sun

Our Kapu Tree House is only available as an add-on reservation to our 3-Day Adventure or 2-Day Pacuare river trips. We recommend booking the tree house for after these experiences.

  • While there is no WiFi at our Beach Tree House, there is plenty of cell phone coverage.
  • The swinging bridge provides “non-scary” access to the Beach Tree House, however, we still suggest those afraid of heights to not book this accommodation.
  • Most guests opt to stay at least two nights here, giving them plenty of time to enjoy Punta Uva and explore the neighboring town of Puerto Viejo.

This is such an amazing trip! Fantastic rafting, absolutely stunning views, and great food! The guides are incredibly competent and made the trip fun, which is all you can ask for. The zip lining and Tarzan swing were a fun way to break up the rafting, and getting out to explore waterfalls was a nice way to end the day. Thank you Tom, Arturo and Luis for an unforgettable experience!

Incredible, authentic Costa Rican vacation experience. We stayed in the brand new lodge and loved, loved the rooms and outdoor lounge overlooking the river.

Simply amazing accommodations in the heart of the Costa Rican Rainforest. I took a group of students and parents with me, and they all said that POC was their favorite spot! It is great for ziplining, rafting, and just relaxing and being with nature. The food cooked for us was incredible! My favorite part is the community space with hammocks and lounge chairs to enjoy time with others. This place really is a little piece of paradise!

I have been here three separate times, and absolutely love this beautiful, scenic lodge. Twice I traveled as a chaperone with a group of students and they adored the spacious, clean cabins, each with a breathtaking view of the rainforest. They spent hours playing cards and other games in the common area, where you can lounge in deck chairs and hammocks. The canopy tour, Tarzan swing, and hike to a waterfall/swimming area were definite highlights of the trip. I can't wait to return.

If you are looking for a vacation to get away from it all and be in the beauty of Costa Rica, while having amazing service, this is the trip for you! The guides were amazing, knowledgable, and great cooks. I would highly recommend. I went with friends for a destination wedding and we had a blast! The trip of a lifetime!
