Lirio Lodge – Barra de Pacuare

You will arrive by boat at Lirio Lodge, Barra Pacuare. This delta of the world famous Pacuare river is home to one of the most pristine and unspoiled treasures that Costa Rica offers. Unlike the Tortuguero region, you won’t have to share your experiences with many others. Lirio Lodge really is secluded!

Your hotel
On a beautiful spot in a jungle lagoon, you are a guest at the charming Lirio Lodge, far away from civilization and other tourists. There’s no WiFi or swimming pool, but you will not feel bored at this extraordinary place.

We can guarantee you will enjoy a great night’s sleep in the middle of nature. Wake up when the jungle awakens for the best chance to spot animals. Early in the morning, before the heat sets in, most animals are busy scoring their breakfast for the day.
