Built on the edge of the roaring Pacuare River, this luxurious raft in–raft out jungle lodge is a marvel, owned and operated by Aventuras Naturales. The bungalows and private suites are some of the plushest nature lodge digs you’ll find anywhere in the country. A few even have private plunge pools. Of these, the remote honeymoon suite is the real star, reached by a long private suspension bridge. For a really unique experience, reserve El Nido, “The Nest,” which is 40 feet or so above the ground on a treetop platform reached by zipline. The Pacuare Lodge has received the highest “5 Leaves” rating from the CST Certification for Sustainable Tourism program.
