If you close your eyes and imagine what a genuine 'Eco-Lodge' deep in the rainforest could be like, you might think of beautiful tropical gardens framing native wood Lodge rooms, open air gathering pavilions with thatched roofs and comfortable hammocks swinging in a gentle breeze, ample viewing decks for watching the toucans fly overhead and the river dance along its rapids. This is what you will experience at our Rios Tropicales Lodge. It's the first 'Eco-Lodge' built on the Pacuare and the only one powered with hydro-generated electricity for a clean sustainable energy source. There are two ways to access the Lodge, via rafting in on the Pacuare River, or hiking in along a trail. The accommodations are set on the mountainside at varying slope heights, affording fantastic views of the river and the dense rainforest surroundings. Activities include a zipline course, walks to pristine waterfalls, naturalist guided hikes, swimming, opportunities to help with rainforest reforestation and horse rides.
