First, Finca Luna Nueva is so beautiful and so peaceful. Accommodations are reasonable, not over the top, but a gem inside the rainforest. The mission of the farm is inspiring and their efforts will hopefully change the way we farm all over the world. Biodynamic farming is the way to go!
The food, delicious, nutritious and slow. Most of what you eat come directly for the farm. Talk about super foods!
What really makes this place special, ,however, are the people. Ismael was the best, most friendly and knowledgable tour guide I have ever had. His smile was enough to make you forget about the snakes living in the trees, until he enthusiastically points them out to you with passion and excitement. You always know you are in good hands. The drivers that took us outside tours have worked with the farm for over 15 years and are reliable, but most importantly trustworthy. They are friendly and always willing to help out, or make a random stop, at the first request. Our drivers gave us a lot of peace of mind when traveling out.
Did I mention how amazing the ozonated pool is. It's Amazing! Be prepared to take some exotic pictures and have a relaxing but busy and educational experience at the farm.
Sorts are good, but so is a rain jacket and quick drying pants. Bring binoculars to see the real cool animals that won't come up to you. And definitely bring a flashlight! While the farm is pretty safe, you are in the middle of the rainforest.
I'll be back!
