What an amazing time we had at Luna Lodge! Lana and her staff make you feel right at home from the moment you arrive til the day you say goodbye. The drive to the lodge is incredible. I think we crossed 7 rivers, saw green parrots, lapas, hawks, monkeys, iguanas...and that was only the drive in. We made it just in time to see the sunset, then settled into our "tent" huts...They consisted of tarp walls/net windows, two beds, a bathroom complete with a heated shower, and patios with rocking chairs perfect for relaxing.
We stayed two nights, with a hike in Corcovado during the day. One thing I would recommend is to make sure you drink enough water! We had been doing tons of hiking before we even got to Corcovado, and we showed up dehydrated- big mistake. Drink. Your. Water!!! :)
Luna Lodge was absolutely magical. Lana and her mother treat you as a dear friend, her staff goes above and beyond to make your stay relaxing, safe, and enjoyable. We ended up getting a flat tire and they helped us patch it up and change it to the spare. Then, when it was time to leave, Lana even gave us a cool alternate route through mountains and utilizing a one-car ferry to cross a wide river, we may have saved some time, and definitely enjoyed some spectacular views of the Osa. She also recommended a restaurant with an epic ocean-jungle view in Dominicalito en route to our next destination.
Overall, I give Luna Lodge and the Osa Peninsula an A+. 5 Stars. Will definitely be back for more.
