The location was very much off the beating path. Be caution that GPS would lead to a side road that was washed out. About 10 minutes away and right after crossing the single lane suspension bridge over the Peñas Blancas river, it’s best to follow the direction provided by the lodge rather than GPS. We were in the Casa Luna... More

We had a wonderful experience here with the exception that it is difficult to find. The GPS doesn't know how to get there. Our room was lovely, it is great waking up to all of the sounds of the rainforest. The staff is very friendly and the food was very good. Staying one night was not enough.

We had a truly wonderful experience staying at Finca Luna Nueva. The staff is incredibly friendly, helpful and also spoke English. The grounds are beautifully designed and integrated into the natural setting. They have several amazing trails into the rainforest and they also offer several great tours on site, so you don't have to travel off site for tours elsewhere.... More

A great place to disconnect from the outside world and connect with the natural surroundings Costa Rica has to offer. Take the tours they offer and enjoy the food prepared from their farm. We felt inspired to go home and make some changes in our life with what we eat and our daily outlook on life. We want to bring... More

This was my second time at Finca Luna Nueva. I was there last June for a yoga retreat and had to bring my husband back as he is an enthusiast of eco-tourism. The staff is doing amazing work in sustainable farming, and are happy to share their knowledge and enthusiasm with us. Don't expect luxury accommodations, but count on beautiful... More

We stayed here for two nights. First if all, it is located about 2-3 km from the main road and about 20-30 min ride from all the attractions around Volcan arenal, so transportation can be difficult, if you have your own car is not a problem, in fact this becomes an advantage because is isolated and in the middle of...

I was here as part of a yoga retreat. My first time in Costa Rica and my eyes were wide the entire time with the beauty of this place. It rained for five days, pretty much nonstop. But, it is a rainforest. I saw so many amazing animals and don't miss the farm tour or the night rainforest tour. Ismael... More

We spent 5 days at this fantastic place where we were introduced to several new spices and healthy meals while gaining new insight into living in harmony with nature. The helpful and knowledgeable staff made our stay most enjoyable. The swimming pool was exceptional as were tours offered by the lodge. High speed wi-fi was available in the main lodge... More

The staff at Luna Nueva is awesome and very knowledgable. The on-property tours are amazing, and the staff will go with you for off-property tours as well. Wifi is available in the outdoor dining area only. The food is great. Overall a wonderful place to stay!

I stayed at Finca Luna for one week with my wife and 1.5 y/o daughter. We had a blast. Setting was so relaxing, staff was helpful and courteous, and food was excellent. We would definitely go back. One word of caution, we traveled in a rental car from SJO and relied on GPS. We should have looked at the directions... More
