Costa Rica | Lapa Rios & Pacuare Lodge: How Tourism Changes Lives, The Richest Biodiversity in the World, and a Philosophy of Giving Back
Manage episode 295646659 series 2849142
Today we’re headed back to Costa Rica - but this time deep into the jungles of Turialba and the Osa Peninsula.
Our guests today are Luz Caceres and Roberto Fernandez - owners of Pacuare Lodge and Lapa Rios. Both lodges offer incredible experiences like white water rafting to check-in, close up encounters with nature, and insights into indigenous culture and sustainability.
Lapa Rios is set in the most biologically intense place on EARTH, and Pacuare is so deep in the jungle that Roberto had to transport tractors and logs there via white water raft to build the lodge. Everything about these places and the people is incredibly special.
We discuss how Roberto’s vision became a reality, how the pair thinks about sustainability, and some crazy stories from the early days. I hope you enjoy this fun dive into the rainforests of Costa Rica.
