I checked into Princesa De La Luna looking for a place with plenty of natural beauty, wildlife, and a pretty view of Volcano Arenal and I wanted the feeling of seclusion and relaxation but still to be close to town and lots of fun activities. This is the place ! Awesome. There is a beautiful mountain stream with natural pools, waterfalls and hiking trails on the property. The deck of the main lodge area offers a beautiful view. Right on the property we saw Toucans, Blue Morpho butterflies as big as a soucer, Pizotes, Oro Pendulum (which make the most beautiful bird call we had ever heard) and several Pecaries which the staff said occasionally pass through. So we got lucky by seeing those. The place is close to town and the best canopy tour I've ever been on called Adventura Del Mundo..Not for the faint of heart but I talked my 70 year old mother into going on it with us and after the first cable she lost her fear and absolutely loved it ! In the town of La Fortuna we found good restaurants and a lot of activities. Some good souvenir shops too if your into that. I recommend the horseback ride to La Fortuna Waterfalls. Princesa De La Luna was a wonderful experience for us , the staff was friendly and the owner was full of knowledge about the area and glad to offer suggestions for fun. We'll be back !
