    We spent a little over a week in Costa Rica with Pacuare Outdoor Center helping us plan the most epic vacation. The lodge is so relaxing, perched in the jungle. Our kids loved the rafting, zipline and Tarzan swing. All the guides and … More crew were incredibly friendly and knowledgeable. Can't wait to go back!

    My sister and I went to Costa Rica for two weeks vacation and spent one week at the Pacuare Outdoor Center. It was my most memorable experience during my time in Costa Rica! The guides for rafting and zip lining were fun, helped teach … More us spanish, took us on hikes, and so much more. The zip lines go through the forest and over the Pacuare River. And if you're feeling brave they have a fun Tarzan Swing where you jump off of a ledge and swing through the forest- I left the video of that out as no one wants to hear me scream. The guides make every meal for you, along with snacks in between on the longer days. While rafting, we stopped a few times to see water falls, jump off rocks and even ate lunch beach side of the river. My favorite part is how the center is device free-- sit in a rocking chair overlooking the river every morning with a cup of coffee or lay in a hammock and listen to the nature around you. The cabins are comfortable and well taken care of. Overall, it was an experience of a life time and we will definitely be visiting again!

    My two mates and I loved the poc experience for a few days. The location was beautiful, grounds were well kept and clean, and the food was delicious. The staff were extremely helpful and took us on some exciting adventures. I would highly … More recommend visiting Pacuare outdoor center.

    Amazing experience for my family and looking forward to doing it all again. One of the very best family adventures we've ever done and we've done a bunch. Great staff, and I really mean that, wonderful lodging, some of the best … More tours you could hope for (birding, rainforest chocolate making and tasting, variety of great dining, crazy fun river rafting, zip lining through the jungle and on and on). Love these folks and look forward to getting back to Costa Rica and spending some time at that jungle lodge watching the macaws over the misty Pacuare River valley.

POC Camp

The POC camp is an extension of the POC lodge and while the POC Lodge is located with vast views of the Pacuare River Canyon the POC Camp is down on the river’s edge. While it might not have the view of the POC Lodge it sits on one of the calmest sections of the river making the POC Camp home to one of the river Pacuare’s best spots for taking a swim and relaxing on the river’s edge.

POCsito is a favorite among so many of our guests. It is a glamping experience with some of the important comforts of home.

POC Lodge

Started in 2011 is the POC lodge. If you haven’t figured it out by now POC lodge is our own lodge and what we like to call the “baby” of the P.O.C. Adventure Company. We wanted a lodge on our favorite part of Costa Rica which is the Pacuare River and with the help of locally harvested supplies and labor, the POC Lodge was born.

 

This is a 180-acre property that runs over 1 mile of the Pacuare River. Our goal has always been to offer as much comfort as possible without steering too far away from our roots of just roughing it on the river’s edge. Our lodge has hot water, a splash of luxury in the rooms, and 5-Star service and attention to our guests.

Our favorite part about the lodge is that we built a short hike up from the river’s edge. We know we have the best views of the Pacuare River canyon and unfortunately pictures don’t even do it justice.

Arenal Paraiso, Arenal

Have you ever wanted to stay the night at the base of an active volcano? Well here is your chance. The Arenal Paraiso is located at the base of the Arenal Volcano with breath-taking views of the perfectly cone-shaped volcano.

Here at Arenal Paraiso’s, you will enjoy the beautiful property which offers much more than just a view. The property has numerous bungalows that offer a splash of luxury while surrounded by lush tropical rainforest. After a day of adventure, you will love making your way back to relax or hang out in the pool at Arenal Paraiso.

Shawandha, Caribbean 

Located at the edge of the white sandy beaches of Costa Rica sits the Shawandha lodge.  A perfect blend of eco-style luxury along with the sounds of the ocean and vibrant ambiance of the rainforest.

Shawandha lodge is set up with individual bungalows made out of local wood. You will be sure to wake up to the sound of the local residents such as the howler monkeys and green macaws. After your day of adventure, you will have a chance to relax and enjoy the beautiful swimming pool at the Shawandha Lodge.

Hotel Villa Florencia, Turrialba

Located in the valley of Turrialba surrounded by sugar-cane plantations and views of the smoking Turrialba Volcano sits an old plantation home that has been renovated into a beautiful small hotel named Villa Florencia.

This is a great hotel with a beautiful pool and plenty of space to take long morning or afternoon hikes. The Villa Florencia hotel is a chance to enjoy luxury while feeling like you stook back in time. While you are in the valley don’t forget to look up as the Turrialba Volcano can often be seen doing small eruptions from across the valley.

Casa Turire, Turrialba

Casa Turire has been one of our favorites since we started. The grounds are some of the lushest you will find anywhere in Costa Rica. Casa Turire sits in the valley of Turrialba surrounded by mountains and the beautiful Turrialba Volcano. The most amazing part about Casa Turire other than its great restaurant and home-made sugar cane ice cream is that it sits on a peninsula surrounded by Lake Angostura offering great morning hikes, birding, or SUPing around the lake.
