We loved the osa peninsula & we loved luna lodge! It's an amazing experience to be smack in the middle of the jungle with macaws, toucans, monkeys & a bunch of other neat critters... The jungle sounds are something incredible. The lodge only accommodates a small number of people, which I really like as I dislike the big hotel experience.... More

We stayed at another location our first two nights at the Osa Peninsula and then came to Luna Lodge upon recommendation of friends. It was absolutely amazing!!! Everything just as I had dreamed of being at a rain forest jungle lodge. The food was good, yoga was great and a fantastic massage. If you wish to go on a hike... More

I was traveling alone through Costa Rica in 2012-2013 and stayed at Luna Lodge in December 2012 and then a second time because I loved it so much in March 2013 (I think? I forget the exact dates).

As a birder with Costa Rica on my Birding Bucket list, I couldnt have selected a better place. The remoteness was exciting, the birds were wonderful and the staff could tell you the bird by sound.

In Luna Lodge, Lana and her amazing staff make definitely sure, that you will have an unforgettable stay. The lodge is situated off-the-grid with an adventurous trail leading to it (4x4 mandatory). For everyone who is bored of showering in a shower - two natural waterfalls are close-by and can be reached by foot within 10 minutes. Guests might get... More

We love getting off the beaten path and so were excited about Luna Lodge's location at the end of the last road on the Osa Peninsula. We couldn't have been happier.

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
