We saw multiple toucans, a mama sloth and her baby, numerous other species of birds, iguanas, an agouti, and many different frogs and insects on the Night Hike w Ismael.

It was my second time at Finca Luna Nueva and it was even better than the first time...

What we liked about it: -The location. It's beautiful, accessible, close to La Fortuna and Arenal Volcano. The road we took to get there was insane, but hey, its a mountainous area. We're from the mountains back home so we've seen curvy roads. And given all the gob I'd heard about Costa Rican roads, I was surprised to find most... More

Great place to stay if you want some rest and relaxation. Great food, friendly staff and beautiful grounds to explore. It is a bit of a hike to the bus stop if you're catching public transportation to get there and to Fortuna, otherwise taxis are another easier option to get around.

My husband and I spent a week there to get away and enjoy an eco-friendly vacation. The grounds were perfect and the staff was very helpful. The food at the restaurant was good and accommodating to my vegetarian needs. It's not super close to activities but also not too far away. Go canyoneering if you have time. So much fun!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Finca Luna Nueva Lodge is a sustainable rainforest eco-lodge hotel, offering an intimate experience of primary rainforest together with a certified organic biodynamic farm and also we have Certification for Sustainable Tourism in Costa Rica. N 2003 we decided to take our promotion of sustainable practices to the next level by building several beautiful eco-lodges using fallen timber from the farm. Since then we have added a 50 foot high observation tower, a solar heated Jacuzzi, an ozonated swimming pool, and a handicapped accessible rainforest trail. Now you can experience the Costa Rican rainforest, learn about our farm's sustainable practices and relax in our rustic yet luxurious accommodations. Walk through well-groomed rain forest trails on our guided farm tours and hikes, eat gourmet meals prepared from our fresh organic garden produce, and witness the majesty of the Arenal Volcano. For adventure activity enthusiasts, we are located only 30 minutes from La Fortuna, the adventure capital of Costa Rica, and home of world famous Arenal Volcano. La Fortuna is a must see destination for anyone seeking a thrill, and our experienced staff will be more than happy to schedule all of your activities and tours for you. With 17 rooms and 40 beds, accommodations can be made for both the traveler looking for an intimate getaway as well as housing for large groups and conferences.
