As other reviewers have already said it is really remote but arrangements can be made through the lodge for pick up in carate or puerto jimenez .We flew into puerto jimenez from San Jose,great way to tour the country,by air,as we had great views from the airplane.The drive was an adventure as well,2 hours of rough roads crossing 17 rivers/creeks! We enjoyed the drive! We really liked luna lodge! The friendlyness of the owner or her mother and the staff.We were made to feel at home in short order by being introduced to the other guests that were there.We stayed in the hacienda rooms which we liked as it had screening and was close to the main lodge.there was also hammocks out front of the hacienda rooms and i enjoyed some time everyday in one of them! The food was simple but fresh and the service could not be beat.Fresh coffee and hot water for tea is always available in the main lodge.I would get up very early get some coffee and sit on one of there huge decks overlooking the ocean and rainforest..We took part in many of the tours offered, oscar being our guide was top notch! One day a group of us flew into the heart of corcovado park,sirena,and hiked all day what a great day that was.We weren't sure if we would find enough to do as we had booked seven nights there but we had no problem.The lodge is set up for yoga and retreats but if you want to just enjoy nature,as we did, that was no problem and we met guest coming for all sorts of reasons. My traveling buddy and i both agreed we would return to luna lodge again because it is one of those special places you can fall in love with! Any critisms would include because of the remoteness it was necessary to travel with guides to go anywhere, which is extra cost.
