The notion of a jungle lodge reachable solely by a full-day raft trip evokes images of buggy rusticity. Not so when you're traveling with Aventuras Naturales to the rafting company's deluxe Pacuare Jungle Lodge, perched high above the Pacuare River and surrounded by otherwise impenetrable tropical rainforest. Sure, you need to negotiate a narrow suspension footbridge to reach your room. And did we mention that there's no electricity? Instead, candles and lanterns add firelight romance to the 19 thatched-roof bungalows. All have net-draped four-poster beds, private decks with sliding glass walls to help keep bugs at bay, and two bathrooms (one inside with copper fixtures, plus an outdoor shower). The Costa Rican fusion fare served at the restaurant is best enjoyed with a fine wine from the lodge's cellar. And when you retire, there's no need to set an alarm clock: You'll be awakened in the morning—guaranteed—by the stentorian roar of howler monkeys in nearby treetops.—Christopher P. Baker
