Böëna is more than a collection of fantastic lodges: it’s also a journey, an internal voyage to a different understanding of the place we occupy in the present and future of our planet, and it’s an exploration of the differing meanings of the word “ecosystem.” All within the borders of one of the most privileged countries in the world. From its tropical forests to its cloud forests to the labyrinth of wetlands to the peak of its tallest mountains … Böëna is an invitation not to be satisfied with one single vision of the magnificent.

The origins of Böëna are intimately linked to the pure, transparent waters of the Pacuare River, which reflect in their flow some of the most beautiful forests in the world, inhabited by the thousand-year-old Cabécar culture. Pacuare Lodge is the place where this all began, and will continue to be the source of inspiration and natural magic for all the experiences related to the name Böëna.Explore
