Bajo del Tigre & Nairi Awari Reserve Hike

Duration: 3 Hours
Includes: Naturalist guides and a picnic lunch.
Difficulty Level: Hard
What to bring: Shorts, tennis shoes, hiking boots or water shoes.


On this walk, you’ll have the opportunity to visit the two communities closest to the Pacuare Lodge: Bajo del Tigre, a typical rural Costa Rican village where many of the Lodge’s staff live, and a small Cabécar Indian community inside the 25,000-hectare Nairi Awari Indigenous Reserve.

This adventure starts by crossing the Pacuare River from the lodge in a rustic gondola suspended from a steel cable, followed by a hike down a path that most of the staff uses to get to and from work.

We’ll hike past patches of secondary forest, streams, crops and homes in the small village of Bajo del Tigre. We’ll then cross the Pacuare River again, via a cable used by the Cabécar, and continue into the jungle, climbing up to a tiny indigenous community with primary school, which you’ll be able to visit.

You’ll enjoy a picnic lunch here before heading back into the rainforest on a trail that winds its way down to the Pacuare Lodge.
