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

La Leona Ecolodge is located right on the shore of the Pacific Ocean, a short distance from the Corcovado La Leona ranger station. Accommodation is in fairly simple tents with not much besides beds and chairs on the porch out front. The waves crash and the birds sing and iguanas slither up and down the trees. The service is superb.... More

After two nights at Finca we slept one night at La Leona in the ocean view bungalow. The ambiance isn't as nice and cosy as at Finca. Also a lot of elderly people, while at Finca you'll find more young people. The bungalow is a big tent and Im sure that its oke when the weather is fine but when... More

A wonderfull place in the magic world of Corcovado The last place i think where you can find this beauty. Imagine the blue green ocean in front of you. You only have to look on the terras of your tent to see the rolling waves. The tents give you all the comfort you need and the candels make it very... More

very kind reception, as well at the office in Puerto Jimenez as at the 'campsite'. We were 4 adults and 4 kids between 6 and 9, and the kids were taken on the horse cart so they didn't have to do the walk in the heat of the sun. Located nicely integrated in absolute paradise. But don't think of driving... More

I struggled with what to say about La Leona. I loved the experience of getting there. The drive from Puerto Jimenez as well as the walk on the beach really reinforced we were out in the middle of no where. Arriving from a hot beach walk we were greeted with refreshing banana smoothies, which was nice. The view from our... More

We stayed here for two nights before hiking into Sirena and then two nights on the way back. It was an excellent plan! The service here stands out as being exceptional. The lodge is just meters away from the la Leona ranger station in the official Corcovado Park. It was a little disconcerting if you arrive on the collective from... More
