"I spent two nights sleeping in the middle of the tropical forest in Pacuare River. After doing a white-water rafting tour at the best river in Costa Rica, I arrived at one of the most luxurious lodges that I have been my entire life. It was a luxury oasis in the middle of the forest, surrounded by waterfalls, walking trails and many adventures. I loved the adrenaline of the white-water rafting, but to spend a night in the middle of the forest is magical and unforgettable. "
