Pacuare River Lodge features 14 bungalows overlooking the scenic Pacuare River. Because the lodge focuses on eco-friendliness, there is no air conditioning, but Costa Rica's temperatures and the open-air concept allows for plenty of ventilation while sleeping. Cabins are enclosed with screens to prevent insects or other wildlife from disturbing sleeping space.

These rooms include two full-sized beds or two twin beds, although couples often push together the twin beds to create one queen bed. Each sleeping space is outfitted with comfortable cotton sheets and pillows to ensure comfort. Small groups can rent extra rollaway beds to ensure plenty of sleeping space.

Cabins are spaced throughout the property to so that all guests have plenty of privacy while in their own space. A shared bathroom provides showers for guests to freshen up before or after their adventures, and daily housekeeping is available. Luggage storage is available for those who require a little extra space.
