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.

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.

This is one of the most spectacular places I have ever stayed at. There is something truly magical about the surroundings, the food, the staff, and the activities. Everyone was so eager to please, and you can;t help but coming away completely refreshed and a bit more knowledgeable about our world.

Excellent and sustainable breakfast included and children and teenager-friendly. They offer a free Farm Tour and for a small charge Community Development activities (horse riding, for instance and a divine coconut ice cream (if you are soon enough at the table to taste it).

Really beautiful grounds. Definitely not fancy but nothing's lacking. The farm is great and the tour is included. There isn't really food available between meals and they like you to let them know if you're going to eat there for dinner. It's nice to because it's a dark drive back at night. The night tour is cool. Bring some ping... More

A working and productive farm surrounding a 4 star resort. Food is good, Rooms spacious and cool. A clean and well run resort, not far from San Jose. The vegi pizza is the best. Everything is grown on site for the restaurant. Sustainable practices are well documented.

I just got back from Finca Luna Nueva after a four night stay. I stayed in Casa Luna and it was comfortable with a ceiling fan and a floor fan so it never got stuffy. It is an amazing place and I would definitely come again as I had a fantastic time. The staff are all friendly and it is... More

If you are looking for luxury, this is not the place for you. But you'll be missing the experience of a lifetime! The staff at Finca Luna Nueva (New Moon Farm) is warm, friendly, knowledgable, and dedicated to preserving the natural beauty of Costa Rica. I just got back from one week there on a yoga retreat with a group... 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
