    With more than 15,000 square feet under roof, this immersive tourism 'Eco Lodge' experience is everything one imagines a stay in Costa Rican paradise to be. The house perches on the edge of that valley providing incredible views of the birds as well as the jungle spread out below and the volcano looming over the far side of the valley.

    These views were one of many reasons that NBC chose to shoot part of their reality show, 'Love In The Wild,' here. Costa Rica's most authoritative travel websites have reviewed the property and 'Highly, highly recommend it for groups and families...'

    The kitchen/dining room area accommodates up to 30 people. Large, locally made wooden tables provide functional preparation and dining area and t...

    Things to Do
    Additional Location Information
    Arenal is described as the adventure capital of Costa Rica and with good reason! There is enough to do here to fill a lifetime, much less a few days or weeks! There are Hanging Bridges, the country's highest, fastest and safest Zip Lines, Hot Springs, ATV and other rentals, Butterfly Conservatory, Eco-Snake Zoo, Horseback Riding, Volcano Hikes, Rafting, Canyoning and Rappelling, Bird Watching, Swimming, Kayaking and fishing on Beautiful Lake Arenal, Caving, more hiking than you could do in a decade and Much more! We have private, off-street parking although a vehicle is not necessary as we are only a $6 cab ride from the center of town. Despite this fact, we are completely private and rural; you can try your hand at milking a cow at one of the little family farms down the road or head the opposite direction to hike in the vast expanse of the legendary Monetverde Eternal Children's Rainforest.

If you love the outdoors and want your own space away from the crowds, yet near Volcano Arenal, then this is the place for you. Located on several acres (I don't know exactly how many) deep into the rainforest, there are enough hiking trails without ever leaving this ecolodge, not to mention the great view of volcano Arenal from the... more

We spent 4 nights here and loved it. The pictures are accurate but they do not capture the experience of eating a fresh homemade costa rican breakfast or dinner on the lower deck or talking to locals and people who have lived in the area for years. You can have as much relaxing or active time as you want. The... more

We were two couples riding motorcycles over a two week period around Costa Rica. We tend to look at the challenges of this kind of vacation as part of the adventure. La Princesa de la Luna did not disappoint in providing some challenges but we left after three nights with a fond appreciation for the property and for the people...
