There is no one complete list of everything to do at the area, but we put this together to help you get the most, or the least, out of your stay here in the South Caribbean.
Punta Uva Beach: Swimming, kayaking, snorkeling, and lounging.
Rio Ernesto: Our river runs about 1km upstream and you can inflatable boat with an electrical motor (we rent it) up and see all sorts of wildlife and feel like you are in a movie or the discovery channel.
Scuba: The dive shop right here in Punta Uva is excellent… Stop by and checkout their beginner course or open water dives to the best the area has to offer.
Fishing: We know the best local guides from an hour or two with a local on a panga boat to a ½ or full day on a professional boat…
Manzanillio Wildlife refuge: See us for trips or to set up a guide for anything from a self-guided hike along the beach past the end of the road to guided tours (starting at $35-70) to the lagoons (awesone) or dolphins/snorkeling, birdwatching, kayak/hike, turtle watching (March-July) or mixed with trips to indigenous reserves. Anything in the refuge is highly recommended and we know all the details.
Surfing: Experts can hit Salsa Brava, world acclaimed, or anyone can surf the break off Cocles and there are lessons for any skill level. Boogeyboarding/surfing is also available and kids/beginners like to do it even right off Punta Uva beach.
Indigenous culture reserves (Bribri, Kekoldi, Yorkin), waterfall, chocolate tours: See us to set up a trek into these reserves to meet the people, learn about their culture, checkout the wildlife/waterfalls, sample some foods and drink and of course buy things. Or spend a day in Yorkin after riding a dugout canoe. We also have a connection with El Puente, which is an organization that helps get the Bribri community prepared for school and assists with a soup kitchen and micro-loans to start or sustain small businesses

About the Host, Estelle
We are Estelle and Florian, two French about fifty years.
We are new owner since february 8th, 2013
We discovered Costa Rica during one of our trips.
We were immediately seduced by the diversity of the landscapes and the kindness of the Costa Rican.
So we decided to leave the South of France and bring our 'french touch' to Pachamama Jungle River Lodge.
We shall be happy to welcome you there and shall do our possible to make your stay as pleasant as possible.
