Guests at Rio Tropicales Eco Lodge will be surrounded by pristine primary rainforest. The lodge sits within a 975 hectare private reserve which has over 60kms of hiking trails and several waterfalls, streams and pools. Whether you're feeling active or you want to relax and take in the natural beauty of the area, you can do both at Rios Tropicales. 

The lodge offers rustic, simple accommodation in a delightfully natural setting, forget thread counts on your sheets and gold plated taps, that's not what it's about. The comfortable rooms vary in size, some large enough to sleep three people. You have an en-suite bathroom with hot running water and a shower. There are also dormitory style rooms which have two bunkbeds and a shared bathroom.

The beauty of the lodge is that it was founded on strong sustainable principles. It was built using reclaimed wood and hydro-electric power. Most of the employees come from the local community and wherever possible, food is sourced from nearby farms supporting the locals.  You won't find TVs here, nor mobile coverage or Wi-Fi - this is all about re-connecting with nature. Leave your worries behind as you relax in a hammock and enjoy the views of the Pacuare River or dine overlooking the gardens and forest as you watch for wildlife and listen to the sounds of the forest.

While you're here why not join one of the Rainforest Restoration Tours. Hike to the top of the Pacuare gorge and plant a tree. So far this ongoing reforestation project has planted over 20,000 trees and they have increased the pledge to 28,000. There are guided and self-guided trails on the reserve along with a superb 9-line zipline course that crosses the Pacuare River, what's more the tour starts just 10 minutes from the lodge.

If you're hanging out at the lodge, you can enjoy a spot of bird watching, play a board came, take a stroll to the nearby waterfall, read a book or just simply 'be'.
