My husband and I just returned from a week at Pachamama. We loved every moment of our time here and could not have picked a more beautiful place to celebrate our 4th anniversary! The lodge is immersed in the jungle while also being within a short walk to the beach, it is paradise! Estelle did such an amazing job ensuring...

My wife and I and our 12-year-old daughter spent the last 3 nights of our 11-day Costa Rica trip at the Pachamama Jungle River Lodge in September 2016.

Pachamama Hotel is a well kept, 70's ambiance, wooden cabins, surrounded by a manicured jungle-like gardens. My husband and I stayed there for two night in June 2016. We feel these are things to consider: The hotel IS NOT located on the beach side of the main road. There was little difference in price to stay in a hotel of...

Estelle at Pachamama is a wonderful host and caretaker. Our family of 5 stayed there for 2 nights and it was wonderful. We stayed in the Villa Monos and we loved the space that it offered.

Wow! Where do I start? This week has been amazing. Estelle is a great host. We feel like we had a home away from home.

We had a great time staying at Pachamama earlier this week! Estelle is fabulous and so helpful with everything. She is also a fabulous cook - breakfast was amazing every day. This was our second time at Pachamama and I can say we would stay here again if we get the opportunity to go back again!!

Seems a lot of people who go to Costa Rica skip this area, which is a mistake. It was our favorite spot. It made me think I was on a Caribbean island. Pachamama is a great place to stay, about half way between Talamanca and Manzanillo. Talamanca is the more fun of the 2 towns, with lots of bars and...
