Finca Luna Nueva is a wonderful place to visit. The stay comes with a farm tour that teaches you all about biodynamic organic farming and about the rainforest life. There are also many other available tours on the farm. The guides are very friendly and extremely knowledgable. The restaurant is wonderful and serves food from the farm. I would recommend... More

My husband and I stayed at the Finca for only two days but we had an amazing time learning about the flora and fauna of the area. The staff was very helpful and friendly and the cabins were perfect for the location, comfortable and spacious without being over the top. It was such a bliss to be surrounded by such... More

What an amazing location, education, and relaxation! My wife, I, and two children (ages 9 and 6) had a fabulous time learning about farming, the Costa Rican flora and fauna, and culture. We had so much fun (Arenal zip line was incredible) and ate scrumptiously delicious food (tilapia, black beans and rice, huevos rancheros, local fresh fruit, pizza cooked on... More

We stayed in the main building near the pool and restaurant. From our hammock on the porch we saw a three toed slot and toucans! Close to La Fortuna, this is convenient while giving you a break from Costa Rica's busy towns. Ishmael led a wonderful tour of the biodynamic farm and the staff is really friendly. The complimentary breakfast... More

My family and I loved what Finca Luna Nueva had to teach us not only about our surroundings but practicing a sustainable way of life. The family bungalow was perfect for us and if you are 4 or more people, that's the place to stay. From a kids perspective, the farm tour was fun, the pool was great fun and... More

I've been to Finca Luna Nueva on two different occasions. The first was with in winter with a load of girlfriends who are full of spirit and adventure. The second was in summer with my husband and 3 children. Both times, the location, staff, lodging and forest worked their magic and provided a little peace and respite in our otherwise... More

We had a spectacular time at Finca Luna Nueva Lodge. We stayed in a family bungalow with 2 bedrooms and 2 additional beds in the front room -- perfect for our family of 5. The bungalow had windows with screens -- wonderfully pleasant for sleeping -- even one night when it rained really hard! We were just a short walk... More

Excellent combination of practicing and educational aspect of environmental sustainability along with proximity to the amazing outdoor adventures of Costa Rica. The staff was incredibly knowledgeable, friendly and, let's not forget, outstanding soccer (futbol) fans during the World Cup. For the right traveler this is an unforgettable place to visit.

We went with a group of 8 families. What a perfect place. The staff was incredibly warm, professional and helpful. The setting was beautiful and inspiring. The rooms were spacious, clean and comfortable. The pool area was a favorite with the kids. The meals were healthy and delicious. Looking forward to returning again soon. Would strong recommend Finca Lun Nueva... 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 and also we have Certification for Sustainable Tourism in Costa Rica. N 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 30 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. With 14 rooms and 40 beds, accommodations can be made for both the traveler looking for an intimate getaway as well as housing for large groups and conferences. ... more   less
