The Osa Peninsula is one of the most gloriously lush and living places on this planet, and Luna Lodge was the perfect place to stay while experiencing it. We stayed one of the tents, and waking the first morning in a tent to the cries of howler monkeys and the screams of macaws in the early morning was one of...

This was my sixth trip to magnificent Costa Rica. I found Luna Lodge, on the Osa Peninsula via Google. "Per unit area, the Osa Peninsula holds possibly the highest natural diversity on earth. The National Geographic magazine described the Osa Peninsula as the most biologically intense place on earth. I was searching for an eco-lodge. This place was perfect for...

My sister and I spent a heavenly 7 days at Luna Lodge. It is truly one of the most beautiful places on earth I have ever had the great fortune to see.

My husband and I, along with my parents, spent 5 nights at Luna Lodge - we could have stayed 5 more nights... Lana, Mom, and the whole staff are just wonderful.

I came here with my family of 4 and we had an unforgettable time. Luna Lodge is a wonderful place to recharge and commune with nature, especially if you're burnt out from work, school or city life like us. The views from the bungalows, yoga platform and dining room were stunning. To be having coffee on the deck while being...

My family of 3 were staying in Carate over the Christmas holidays and had dinner at Christmas Eve at Luna's. As we did not have a rental car, Lana arranged for us to be picked up and driven back.

My family and I spent a little under a week at Luna Lodge over the holidays and New Years, and had an amazing time.

Luna Lodge was heavenly! Tucked away deep in the rainforest, everything is seamlessly integrated into nature. It is the most relaxing place on earth.

I stayed in the lowest tent and found it to be absolutely adequate, just like a room with an attached bathroom and front porch.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Secluded in the tropical rain forest bordering Corcovado National Park, Luna Lodge is a unique resort described by many as "...a piece of true paradise". Its appeal is, not only, its natural beauty and environment, where the heliconia hang three feet long, and the howler monkeys wake you in the morning, but also, its ambiance. The owners' passion for the preservation of the forest is ever present, and the attentive courtesy, friendly staff always serve "con mucho gusto... with pleasure". ... more   less
