Luna Lodge was magical. We stayed 8 nights. Lana, Willie, her mom, Gary, our guide, and the entire staff were warm, welcoming and gracious. We loved Corcovado National Park - and galloping horses on the beach! We even saw a puma - very rare! And peccaries, and a tapir, and coatis, and Jesus Christ lizzards who walk water, and a... More

We went to Luna for our Honeymoon. We were exhausted before we got there. We stayed only a few hours in the honeymoon bungalow since we just couldn't get over the bugs, specifically the scorpion in the bedside table drawer. I think guests should be fully aware of the environment. Bring sneakers, water shoes, flip flops hat/bandana. Bring your own... More

After getting a bit of distance from our experience here, I can see that it probably wasn't as awful as we remember it to be. For one thing, our stay here came at the end of our two-week stay in CR, and by this time we were both tired, my roommate was already ill, and while there I also became... More

The Luna Lodge had great food, great service and lovely bungalows. However, I would not recommend staying in the tents unless you are in fairly good shape as they are quite a hike up a steep hill. The bungalows are very romantic and the entire experience is very surreal in that you are in such a remote location and so... More

In my opinion, no visit to Costa Rica is complete without a visit to Osa Peninsula—with its pristine rain forests, black sand beaches and bountiful wildlife. It was the highlight of our visit. And if you go, the place to stay is the amazing Luna Lodge. Located a 2 hour drive from Puerto Jimenez (or a 5-minutes from the airport... More

My husband and I ended up at Luna Lodge by default, another hotel lost our reservation. The road in was a breeze, we never used our 4 wheel drive. The Lodge is amazing, the bungalows have the best showers (outdoors) and they are perfectly cleaned each morning. We booked for 3 nights but stayed 5 and Luna Lodge ended up... More

Luna Lodge was one of the highlights of our tour with Wild Planet's Ultimate Wildlife Adventure. The drive from Puerto Jiminez is not for the fainthearted, however. I couldn't begin to get up over the tailgate of a pickup truck to ride on one of the benches, so I enjoyed the bumpy ride in the front with the driver. We... More

This is the place to go if you love plants, animals, and serenity! The staff are OUTSTANDING...attentive, friendly, knowledgable and fun. Lana (the owner) is warm, friendly, and always available to chat with. Her mum, Willy, is also fantastic, full of knowledge and kindness. The food was great: healthy, but filling and flavourful...the fruit is to die for, as were... More

We were just there in late November and it was sort of a disappointment. The property is beautiful and its proximity to Corcovado are definitely plusses. But there are some definite drawbacks that make the property fairly overpriced. First off, Luna Lodge is brainchild of Lana Wedmore who is very well regarded in the area. But she wasn't there when...

I've traveled to Costa Rica seven times in the last 14 years, and I have to say that this is my favorite place. There is nowhere more beautiful in the country to visit than the area around Carate and Corcovado Park. My husband and I loved Luna Lodge. The activities were endless. The staff was so helpful and so sweet.... More
