If you are looking for luxury, skip this place. If you are looking to be surrounded by nature, with very comfortable accommodations, this is for you. The fact that there is no electricity, and no wifi just added to the appeal for me. What a way to unplug! I had been to CR twice before, and, wanted to see the... More

An adventure for those who want to avoid the routine tourist setting. Great staff, very nice tent cabins on platforms, excellent food, all next to a pristine national park. Excellent hiking and superb views.

Well worth the little effort to get to the lodge. Welcoming, romantic, full of adventure walks, food amazing and the staff made it one of my all time favorite places. Augustine, who must only be about 20, noticed me itching my legs so made me a spritz of warm coconut oil. Took the itch away almost immediately. Saw so much... More

We have stayed at La Leona Eco Lodge for the third time. It's amazing to see how easy you can reach the lodge nowadays by 4-WD. The last few times we have seen only three rivers. Even the walk on the beach to reach the lodge is more easier by a trail. The trail starts at the parking where Caesar... More

Staying at La Leona was well worth the effort to get there. I loved the seclusion and the outdoor shower! The staff were beyond excellent and the food was great! They catered well for me being vegetarian and they even set up a special dinner for my birthday. The candle light rather than electricity at night was magical. We really... More

Very remote, beautiful setting, nice people. Just be aware there is no electricity in the tents so it can get hot at night. But lovely ocean breezes during the day. Also you are not supposed to swim on the beach due to rip tides so that can be difficult, given how hot it gets there. Food was fine, nothing special... More

We just returned from a 4 night stay at La Leona, and it was truly a special experience. From the moment you are dropped off and take the 40 minute walk down the beach to get there, you know you are leaving the stress and worry of the world behind you and stepping into a piece of paradise. Surrounded by... More

It is difficult to describe La Leona Eco Lodge until see it for yourself. Getting to this lodge which is yards away from the unforgettable Corcovado National Park could take a paragraph. The lodge is simple and plain yet it met all my needs. I stayed in one of the permanent tents close to the ocean. It was clean,basic and... More

After such a long and exciting journey here, finally walking the three km along the beach to La Leona, we were worried that the actual place would be disappointing. We were not let down in any way. This is not luxury or a tourist resort; this is for travellers who enjoy natural beauty, stunning geography, wildlife and pure surroundings. It... More

3rd time there, we choose a front sea tent with bathroom, very nice, two chairs to relac on the balcony, a lot of hamacs everywhere on the site, that make a big difference when comes the moment of resting, or looking at he sun going down to the sea,even thousands of stars at nightime. This is the best place to... More
