We drove to the Osa Peninsula from Colorado and had time to check out many other places. The La Luna is by far the best! It is the most remote, and enveloped in jungle much more than the more expensive ones. At the same time, you experience luxury in very nice cabins, good food, great service, good bar, incredible guides,... More

We absolutely loved Luna Lodge. It was the most remote place we have ever stayed….but it was so charming, invigoraing and interesting. We awoke to the sound of birds and monkeys every day. The staff was wonderful…couldn't do enough. They were attentive, accomodating, friendly and provided great information. It was truly an experience that we will never forget. The food... More

This place was incredibly beautiful and peaceful! Not close to the beach at all, but no matter-too hot for that. Great healthy food and the Yoga platform view is to die for! Don't miss out on the massage of a lifetime. Swaying white curtains on a platform high in the rainforest. Literally watched toucans and hummingbirds fly over head while... More

Our trip to Luna Lodge was one wonderful experience after the other. The minute we arrived Lana, the owner and builder, met us at the car with a welcome drink and the great service continued until we left three days later. Everything was on time and exactly as they said it would be. The gourmet and healthy food, breakfast, lunch,... More

With the plan of staying just two night we ended up extending our stay for another two nights. The location was excellent to spot a wildlife and the stuff service exceptional.

Some friends recommended Luna Lodge so I looked forward to visiting. It is a truly lovely site high up at the end of the road. Set in the rain forest with a view of the ocean. My son spends a lot of time in Costa Rica so he was glad to visit a place he was unfamiliar with. I spent... More

Gorgeous setting and nice birding! Delicious food and friendly staff. While the tent cabins are perfectly fine - simple with everything one needs,the hike up to them is not for the faint of heart: 150 steep steps. Also, what was billed as "all day birding in Corcovado" was a 6 hour hike in 90 degree temperatures with 90% humidity. And... More

We have been all over Costa Rica and wanted to experience the Osa peninsula. Carate is probably the farthest point you can drive, and other than 3 or 4 lodges there is nothing there. I expected to see a lot more animals there and to experience a more secluded region. My wife and I booked two nights at Luna Lodge... More
