In the language of the Cabecar Indians who live in the mountains to the south of the Pacuare Lodge, Jawa Juü is the house of the shaman, who treats patients with medicinal plants he collects in the jungle.

At the Pacuare Lodge´s Jawa Juü Spa, we use the soothing power of the rainforest, rhythmic massages and spa treatments with local, natural products to create a blissful sensory experience for the body and the mind. As the swift flowing Pacuare River murmurs in the background and birdsong drifts down from the branches, let the colors, scents and sounds of the tropics lull you into a state of peace and deep relaxation as our spa professionals work their magic.
