Pacuare River

I have rafted a lot of rivers in my life. I was lucky to grow up in a family that did the Snake, Salmon, Flathead, Rogue, Yellowstone, Locsha --- you name it, we probably road tripped there and rafted it when I was a kid.  I have rafted in Ecuador, Peru and Chile. There is something special about the Pacuare River though. Maybe it's the fact that the river runs through a protected area that seems far from civilization.  Or that it flows through a rainforest teeming with wildlife that can be spotted from the river.  Or maybe it seemed so special because we spent the night along the banks of the river at the Rios Tropical Lodge.

Nothing but rapids and rainforest for miles.  And then a lodge. A lodge with a zipline!

After a lovely dinner by candlelight, we were off to bed.  Because in the morning, it was more of this:
