MAQUEGUE FALLS LODGE
Located in the mountains right above Siquirres, Maquengue Falls Lodge is a great place to spend the night between your Tortuguero and Pacuare Expeditions, at only 25 minutes from our Exploration Center. It has the 3 300 meters / 11 000 ft. steaming Turrialba Volcano right above it, and the Caribbean lowlands rolling all the way down to the sea right below it (with ocean views on clear days!!!). It has a superb location and it is well off the tourist path!!!
Maquengue is a very large Tico farm that combines cattle pastures, agricultural fields and a segment for conservation. It is in this last section where the 5 scenic waterfalls that the property offers are located. There is a well marked trail with a couple of small hanging bridges that connect the 5 waterfalls. You can see all of them and even go for a swim in about two hours. Since you arrive at 3 00 pm and leave the next day at 7 45 am (to go for breakfast to our Exploration Center) you will have two chances to do this hike. The staff at the lodge will gladly take you.
The farm features a main house with Swiss Style Architecture, fire place, a great living room, swiming pool with a nice deck, a computer with internet that you can use, pool table and cable TV . You are very welcome to hag out here.
The Villas where you will stay feature a living room also with cable TV, kitchenette, bathroom with hot water and two rooms, one with a double bed and one with two single beds, and an outside porche with great views!!!
it is very important to mention that the staff are not bilingual, so you will have a chance to practice your spanish!!! Your stay includes dinner, and breakfast will be back at our exploration center. Your pick up time for the Pacuare rafting trip will be 7 45 am.
