We loved Finca Luna Nueva Lodge! The rooms are very nice, we stayed in a private bungalow. Everything they are doing there is in some way sustainable. Their food is all organic or locally grown and tastes SO good! Worth it just for the fresh food & smoothies! Also all of their staff was extremely friendly and inviting. We tool... More

Choosing a place for my solo vacation was pretty easy once I stumbled on Finca Luna, and it did not disappoint. The lodge is gorgeous, in other-worldy surroundings. I wanted a tranquil, easy-going and rejuvenating holiday and this place paid off in spades. The pool and jacuzzi are super, the hiking trails on the property offer into the rainforest are... More

We had a family bungalow - excellent and rustic. Our group totaled 8 people, two couples and our 4 boys aged 13-22. The location is slightly off the main track, but well worth it. If you are looking for busy and action, this is not it. We were there in early to mid March and were among maybe 20 guests.... More

The location was very much off the beating path but worth it for the clean, efficient tropical experience! The staff were helpful and very knowledgeable about local attractions. If you're looking for a remote location with direct access to nature, this is the place for you.

I had a great time with my friend at Finca Luna Nueva Lodge. The staff is great, the food is delicious.. especially the fresh fruit in the morning. Everything is made by the kitchen staff and most of the ingredients come from their farm! Try the blackberry buffalo yogurt and the jackfruit!! It is the most delicious fruit I have... More

Stayed four days in one of the family bungalows, which was perfect for the four of us. Lodge is very peaceful and you really feel like you are staying in the forest. Downside of that is that it is a 20-25 min ride into Fortuna for activities, but we felt that tradeoff was worth it. Ate dinner here every night... More

Stayed here based on TA reviews, Location is definitely far from action and I absolutely would not stay here if you don't have car. I was immediately disappointed when I requested 6pk of local Costa Rican beer to be in my room on ice for our vacation arrival and it was not fulfilled. Also there was an incident where we... More

The Rainforest is the place to go when you visit Costa Rica. As far as Rainforest goes, Luna Nueva is the best place to experience it! Get away from standard concrete hotels. Come to paradise! Enjoy the peaceful sounds of the many animals that reside in the forest around you. Eat by the pool. Take a farm tour. Explore many... More

I went to Luna nueva with my birder friend following the recommendations of a another birder friend Penelope that works as a volunteer there. I am a birder guide in CR, I've done tons of birding pretty much everywhere and I have to say that this place is out of this world. We started birding about 8 in the morning... More

I stayed in one of the bungalows. I loved falling asleep to the sounds of the jungle at night. However, alittle too much of the jungle came into my room. The bathroom was totally infested with large black ants at sundown. This was a problem for me because I needed to use the bathroom at night and then it would... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Finca Luna Nueva Lodge is a sustainable rainforest eco-lodge hotel, offering an intimate experience of primary rainforest together with a certified organic biodynamic farm. We began farming here in 1994, planting and harvesting organic ginger and turmeric, and promoting sustainable agriculture and conservation in the local community. In 2003 we decided to take our promotion of sustainable practices to the next level by building several beautiful eco-lodges using fallen timber from the farm. Since then we have added a 50 foot high observation tower, a solar heated Jacuzzi, an ozonated swimming pool, and a handicapped accessible rainforest trail. Now you can experience the Costa Rican rainforest, learn about our farm's sustainable practices and relax in our rustic yet luxurious accommodations. Walk through well-groomed rain forest trails on our guided farm tours and hikes, eat gourmet meals prepared from our fresh organic garden produce, and witness the majesty of the Arenal Volcano. For adventure activity enthusiasts, we are located only 35 minutes from La Fortuna, the adventure capital of Costa Rica, and home of world famous Arenal Volcano. La Fortuna is a must see destination for anyone seeking a thrill, and our experienced staff will be more than happy to schedule all of your activities and tours for you. ... more   less
