We had been to Finca Luna Nueva for a farm tour and lunch last year, which were both fabulous, and this trip we had the pleasure of staying at the lodge for five nights. If you enjoy nature, organic food, and simple elegance then this is the place for you. There are several hikes available at the lodge including a tour of the farm itself where you can see where your dinner comes from, as well as day and night hikes into the rainforest. Ismael is a fabulous guide for all ages. He is incredibly knowledgeable and has very sharp eyes! He is sensitive to older hikers as well as fun and inspiring for children. We found all of the staff at Luna Nueva to be helpful and kind. This trip included my mother who enjoyed relaxing on the porch and viewing the toucans, my children who loved bottle feeding the baby pigs, and myself who enjoyed sloth viewing while swimming. The lodge is off the beaten path, but is an easy 20-30 minute ride away from La Fortuna where great zip lining, rafting, and horseback riding awaits. The staff is very helpful with arranging tours and transportation off site. Spa services are also available. You wont find manicures or martinis, but you will find massages, acupuncture, reflexology, etc. given by a very gifted and knowledgeable practitioner. You will leave Luna Nueva feeling much healthier and calmer than when you arrived!
