You can raft out of the lodge to Siquirres. From there take a rent a car or private shuttle to La Fortuna. It may take between 2.5 to 3 hours depending on traffic!!

I don't remember prices for the drinks, they put them on your room and you pay for all of them at the end. They weren't crazy high though, I wasn't surprised by the bill. The only cash we needed was for tips. They are not required, but we tipped our servers and guides in cash. It is much appreciated! We were there in June, and the plunge pool is cold! It is fresh spring water so it is chilly!

"For privacy the Jaguar Lodge is #1, or the 3-4 villas located furthest from the main lodge with direct views of the Pacuare River"
"We had a river view room but there are other types."
"Deluxe river views are great. the "Congo" room was spectacular!"
"All rooms are open air with the sounds of a jungle and views of the river."
"Loved my suite by the river. (be prepared for the noise of the water!) Ask for a deck in the sun, as most seemed to be in shade."
