Have you ever visited a place so enchanting, so fascinating, so alive that no matter where you go in your life, or what you do from that point on, the memory of that particular journey and its adventures remain indelibly fixed in your mind? Maybe you are sitting in your office, or mowing your lawn, or sun-bathing on a beach back home, when all of a sudden that same feeling or energy of that place gently descends upon you out of the blue, and you find yourself drifting back into those recollections and reliving them as if it had happened just yesterday. Well, beware! This is one of the lasting side-effects of a vacation to Luna Lodge of Costa Rica, 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, birdwatching, practicing yoga, or enjoying a therapuetic massage, Luna Lodge is truly a unique experience not found elsewhere in Costa Rica or the world!
Imagine this... You are 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. Although you are beginning to rouse yourself a bit in preparation for the active day ahead, the sloth in the grand mayo tree off to your left hasn't moved a muscle. Typical. It makes you think of some people you know…
This is a reality on the 60 acres of tropical wilderness that is Luna Lodge, Lana Wedmore's personal dream come true. Over 30 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 five year-round waterfalls on the property itself, one with a swift flowing chute and refreshing wading pool less than a ten minute walk from the bungalows. Just a few minutes further down the river valley, among a riverbed full of brilliant white boulders, a much higher set of falls thunders down from over 40 feet; you can stand under the spray and look down at how nature is realigning and reharmonizing the river's elements.
Amid tropical rainforest sits eight comfortable, cool, spacious, thatched roof bungalows. Each bungalow provides two double beds, a private deck, and a private bathroom with shower and bathtub. Select bungalows overlook vast tropical rainforest, and a honeymoon suite is also available with a king size bed. Local guides will educate you about the wonders of the rainforest. All tours at Luna Lodge are an experience designed to raise your awareness and to educate you about the lowland tropical rainforest. Our guides will do their best to share their knowledge and interpret the great diversity of life forms and natural settings in the rainforest. The commitment to saving Mother Earth is part of the mission statement at Luna Lodge.
