  • Description


    We are a small, family run eco-lodge in the heart of a Costa Rican tropical Rain-forest. We are located along the Pacuare River, one of the top ten rafting destinations in the world. Our guests generally raft into and out of the lodge. We offer an all-inclusive package with guided hikes, rafting, lodging and meals. This is a place to unplug and refresh.

    The Workawayers assist experienced, independent local guides in meal preparation and cleanup. Workawayers will also assist Carolina and Johanna with cabin cleaning and Don Mario with gardening. Workawayers will have the chance to meet and interact with customers from all over the world. A true Cultural experience in a beautiful setting. In your free time there are hikes, bird and wildlife watching, river reacting and other activities available. We also have a large book collection for those of you that would like to spend your afternoon relaxing in a hammock with a book. On days off some Workawayers like to hang around the lodge while others travel to nearby tourist destinations via public transportation. Like our clients and staff, workawayers will eat well.
