Stayed here as part of the 7 day grand tour of Costa Rica. Accommodation is lodge type, the bedroom area is clean and bright, the bathroom a little basic, but it is adequate for a two night stay. Insect repellent is essential, as is sun screen, hairdryer, light weight rain jacket. Consider taking a wet bag for packing your damp...

Getting to Pachira Lodge is an adventure in itself. It took most of one day to get from Cartago to there. Van, bus, boat. The boat trip is a bit of a tour with many animals to be seen alongside the shore. The lodge itself is very remote and the acommodations very rustic. It is in the middle of the...

Pachira Lodge is situated in the middle of the lush rainforest. The grounds are more than beautiful. You wake up early to the sound of howler monkeys. The staff is very friendly and the guides are very knowledgeable. Notice that Pachira lodge is not a luxury resort. There is no air conditioning in the rooms. The food is okay but...

Really enjoyed our stay here. The howler monkeys frightened the life out of me at 5.30am. People were up and about at this time but who wants to stay in bed when there is so much to see outside the room.

We stayed two days at Pachiro lodge. The accommodation is in lodges around the wonderful tropical gardens where you can spot birds, butterflies and if you are lucky some frogs. There are two swimming pools and the food hall whilst busy had lots of buffet points. The food was fine if a little bland after a couple of days. You...

This was such a lovely place, although 'sophisticated' travellers might find the rooms a bit basic. They are a series of 4 suite bungalows scattered through amazing gardens. The restaurant is excellent, well capable of handling large numbers of guests in short periods. The pool are is delightful and the location is to die for !

The rooms here are basic, but nice. The wall does not go all the way up, so you will hear your neighbors if they make noise. The ceiling fan has only one speed, which is fast, so you may need to turn it off at night, but you will appreciate the speed during the day. There is an excellent concrete...

As a solo traveller, I did not expect that 95% of the people at the lodge were on package tours, and only staying one or two nights -- and this is obviously the market that the lodge caters for. The accommodations were fine and in a serene setting. However, the walks in the rainforest were limited to the "cement" trail...
