Luna Lodge is a secluded eco-lodge set in the pristine and captivating Osa Peninsula, near Corcovado National Park in southwestern Costa Rica. Whether hiking with the possibility of encountering rare wildlife, bird watching, practicing yoga, or enjoying a therapeutic massage, Luna Lodge is truly a unique experience not found elsewhere in Costa Rica!


Imagine yourself gazing across a deep river gorge just in time to catch the first rays of sunlight crowning the canopy of the primary rainforest across the valley with a hue of gold, your senses being teased gently to life as you sip on fresh pineapple juice on the deck of a huge rancho. As the mists below begin to part to offer you a glimpse of the blue Pacific in the near distance, you hear the rhythms of the rainforest, an orchestra led by the wild brazen troop of howler monkeys only a few hundred yards away.



The lodge is nestled among 150 acres of tropical wilderness. Over 75 acres of the lodge's property is primary virgin rainforest. You can spot literally hundreds of rare and beautiful bird species such as the scarlet macaw, red-legged honeycreeper, and slaty-tailed trogon. You will also likely encounter exotic creatures, such as coatis, tayras, and the four species of monkeys found in Costa Rica. There are year-round waterfalls on the property, one with a swift flowing chute and refreshing wading pool less than a ten minute walk from the bungalows.


The lodge is surrounded by a wonderful blend of natural and organic landscaping with fruit trees such as; mango, water apple, papaya, banana, china fruit, mandarin orange, lemon, cacao, avocado, and cashew, plentiful. The pleasant, intoxicating aromas of ylan-ylan, frangipani, and night-blooming jasmine permeate the grounds.


The rancho houses the restaurant, bar, kitchen, reception, library, and gift shop. The dimensions of the structure reflect those of the surrounding rainforest, with a towering roof soaring 25 feet over one of the largest ranchos on the Osa Peninsula. The spacious deck is ideal for bird watching, stargazing, or just absorbing the energy of the rainforest.

Secluded in a beautiful garden alongside the rancho rests a natural rock encrested pool perfect for sunbathing, cooling off from a vigorous tour, or just sitting and enjoying one of the most beautiful vistas in the world.


The restaurant, “El Eclipse Total”, is open all day and features international cuisine. The dining area is open and spacious, affording comfort for dozens of guests. There's even space for an occasional rainforest dance! The gift shop offers not only necessities and souvenirs, but also an interesting array of boutique items selected from international artisans.


You will dine on inventive cuisine and exotic native dishes, homemade breads, organic fruits and veggies, and scrumptious salads, accompanied with natural juices, sodas, or your favorite tropical libations. Everything at the lodge is prepared fresh and natural each day, and will energize you to launch your rainforest experiences. With the hectic life left behind and the jewels of the Earth at your doorstep, you will remember Luna Lodge as one of the most rewarding and invigorating vacations of your entire life.
