Turrialba Vista

When we started offering Pacuare river trips, we realized that many guests were looking for local lodging the night before their trip launched. We’re happy to have just completed our Turrialba Vista, a private guest house featuring a stunning view of Lake Angostura, and when the rain forest clouds cooperate, views of Turrialba Volcano. This lodging is only available to those joining us on one of our experiences such as the 3-Day Adventure or 2-Day Pacuare River Trip.

$200 / night

Turrialba Vista sleeps up to 6 people

It’s one guest house that’s three bedroom three bath

One room is one queen one bath, the other two rooms each have two singles and their own bath

A reservation is for the whole guest house, so the entire place is yours.

Breakfast included

This is a guest house on my property and you’re encouraged and welcome to join my family for breakfast in the main house. We treat everyone like family. And if that doesn’t fit your schedule, then Turrialba is close by and has plenty of dining options as well. Just let us know.

Please keep in mind there is no kitchenette in the Turrialba Vista.

Work or play

The Turrialba Vista has WiFi and there is cell phone service here so it’s a perfect fit for those needing to get some work done before disconnecting on one of our Pacuare river experiences. And if that’s not needed, then kick back with a book on our private balcony overlooking Lake Angostura. The sunrises and sunsets are spectacular here and you’ll feel immediately relaxed.

Close to town, yet in the country

We’re just minutes from “downtown” Turrialba yet far enough away where you won’t hear the city or street traffic.

  • This accommodation is best suited for those starting a Pacuare river experience the next day. If you’re looking for lodging after your Pacuare trip, we highly recommend the Kapu Tree House.
  • We love dogs and hope you do too :). You’ll get to meet Rocky, Shaq, and our other dogs that we love dearly. While they’re not allowed at your guest house, they will likely greet you when you first arrive, so please keep that in mind.
  • We treat everyone like family but also respect your privacy. If you don’t plan on joining us for breakfast, then we’ll happily make suggestions for places in town.

What an amazing place this is! I can’t thank our guides Ivan, Andres, and Max enough. The best hosts, cooks and river guides! Our lodge was so clean, no bugs, comfy beds and the sounds of the jungle to fall asleep to. I would recommend this experience to anyone. Pura Vida ✌🏽🌿🦥

A truly unforgettable experience -- I can't recommend Pacuare Outdoor Center enough for the trip of a lifetime. Whitewater rafting, canopy ziplining, mountain biking, waterfall hikes, tarzan swinging, and more unreal adventures all take place in the most beautiful locations in Costa Rica. All excursions are guided by the friendliest, most professional staff anyone could ask for. Luigi and his guide team are incredibly talented at what they do and ensure everyone is having fun, informed, well-fed, and most importantly extremely safe. I never expected to learn so much about the breathtaking and culturally-rich country of Costa and I can't recommend the Pacuare Outdoor Center enough. Anyone - from families, groups, to solo travelers - will have the time of their lives. I definitely did. The lodging and locations are first-rate. Super clean, comfortable, and well maintained by the POC staff. Shout outs to Luigi, Eddie, Max, Andres, Mauricio, Fernando, Rafa, Tom, and all the other team members for making this trip one that I will never forget. They truly felt like family and really go out of their way to give first-class service to everyone. I can't wait for my next adventure with POC - this will not be the last. 11 out 10 stars. Absolutely incredible.

The crew at Pacuare Outdoor Center took care of everything from start to finish. There’s something to be said about a group of Costa Rican Raft Guides serving up their home cuisine on the side of the river using the raft you just floated through rapids on as the dinner table. Not to be missed!

When you come to this experience you think you know what your getting into based on the pictures and videos, but it is so much more. Between the staff and the accommodations you are so completely taken care of. You can effortlessly enjoy yourself while you see the best parts of Turrialba. This trip will push you. You will face your fears and do things you never thought you could. It’s the perfect balance between adventure and relaxation. After a full day of zip lining through the greenest forests you have ever seen you get driven back to a beautiful lodge where the food is delicious and the beer is cold. You can raft down rapids and stop on the shore for a homemade meal. It’s an experience I will never forget. If you’re looking for a travel package to see this country, this is the one.

I only gave this five stars, because I didn’t have the option for six. This was by far the best trip experience I’ve ever had. Luigi, our guide for the trip. Blew away my expectations regarding his knowledge of the wildlife in Costa Rica, and also how thoughtful the country is with how they use their resources. The activities on the trip were more fun than I expected, which was still quite a lot. What made it better was how the entire guide team did a stellar job educating me on how to do things like the zip line, the Tarzan swing, and rafting. Not only that, but the guide team was warm and inviting in their friendliness. I really felt like I made lifelong friends in this experience. Long story short, you’d be short some brain cells if you didn’t book this trip and experience Costa Rica the way it’s supposed to be.

We brought a group here with our company and we could not be more happy with the entire experience. The entire crew were friendly and trustworthy and everyone in our group keeps raving about the food, activities, and crew. I would recommend this company to anyone and everyone who wants to travel to Costa Rica.

This is a MUST!!! We had the best time ever. The guides are the BEST! Luigi and his team of guides make the trip incredible. Their knowledge of the animals and nature was really great we learned a lot. The homemade food was incredible it was good and natural. Loved the white water rafting and zip lining. The lodge was natural and beautiful 👍 This is our first trip to Costa Rica and we will be back each year and always we will come to Tom and his lodge. Come visit you’ll be glad you did.
