Frequently Asked Questions

The P.O.C. Affiliate program was brain-stormed and started during the pandemic months. With an effort to do everything possible to keep the business running, Tom Ranieri (Founder of P.O.C.  17 years ago) and his staff at P.O.C. decided on a way to reignite international travel, develop relationships with small businesses, and ultimately have affiliate members enjoy beautiful Costa Rica.

Here at Pacuare Outdoor Center (POC), we value experiences, and we also try to facilitate opportunities for our guides to travel. We have been around the world with our paddling team, so we know the importance of traveling with your team. We hope to develop our affiliate program that allows shop owners, guides, and anyone else directly involved in the industry to travel to Costa Rica and spend a week.  

The concept is simple. Our affiliates sell 10 spots on any of our trips and in return you get to pick any of our packages below at no charge.

There are lots of ways you and your business can benefit from our affiliate program, we've noted just a few below:

  • Earn credits for different vacation packages to Costa Rica.
  • Open opportunities for you or your staff to travel to Costa Rica without spending extra money.
  • Get more exposure to your brand and business through shared blog posts and internet marketing.
  • Have your clients coming back and thanking you after a fantastic trip to Costa Rica!
  • Setup and execute trips without the headache of planning and operating.

Each POC affiliate will have access to their private dashboard where they can create unique URLs to share with their friends, family, customers or anyone on their email lists. Those unique URLs are how each sale is tracked through POC. We will have access to the date of purchase, date of the trip, client info, and deposit. On your dashboard, you will see the credit once the deposit clears and that generally happens within 48-72 hours.

  • Do a Webinar with POC - we will provide you with all the information necessary to explain what is needed when traveling abroad. We will provide you with all the email send-outs, follow up and landing page, creative content so that the user experience is seamless. We will also host and record the conversations so that you can share it with your audience on any occasion. 


  • Free Content & Links - Ask POC to write you a blog post - we will provide you with a 1200 -1500 blog post relating your expertise with the opportunity to display that expertise in Costa Rica. We ask that you share the content across all your social platforms and we will do the same.  


  • Do an interview on POCtv and post to your social media

You will have 24/7 access to your own private dashboard. In your member area, you will see commission reports, monitor traffic from your links, and access any promotional creative for you to share with your audience. 


Anyone in the outdoor industry business most likely got started because they wanted to work doing their passion. We all know that running your own business can oftentimes make us forget about why we started and/or consume our time. Some of us have mastered the balance of work and play while others have not. Our goal with offering vacation packages to the place we are passionate about is to promote our affiliate relationship with the reward of play!  We enjoy showing off Costa Rica and hopefully getting to meet everyone personally. We know that after attending one of our vacation packages you will be excited to go on a different one next year. We also know a vacation package will make memories that last a lifetime. We are sure you will consider it better than any commission payments.

The customer will get a refund based on our cancelation policy and unfortunately, that also means you have one less trip counting against your free trip and it is time to send out a few more emails!!

While most affiliates are adventure outfitters or retail paddle and bike shops, surf shops, outdoor shops anybody can apply to the POC Affiliate Program. Each application will be reviewed and subsequently accepted or declined. If your application is declined and you would like to understand why you can send your questions to info@pacuareoutdoorcenter.com.

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.
