This area is remote but is absolutely worth it. I wanted the experience of an eco-lodge, an unspoiled rainforest, the birds, animals, and wonderful people -- and I received the very best of it all at Luna Lodge! Lana has carved out the most wonderful, eco-friendly setting and made it sustainable while interacting with the nature surrounding you. The trip from Puerto Jimenez to Luna Lodge was made so enjoyable by my guide pointing out all the birds and animals along the very rough road. Then arriving at Luna with cold, crystal clear water awaiting you and Lana greeting you, seeing my wonderul bungalow and the view, the delicious fresh lunch on the verandah of the dining room overlooking the rainforest and out to the ocean. The guides, Gary and Oscar, were extremely knowlegeable and made the tours the best -- always available to answer any "dumb" question I might have. And one must always have Osa, the greatest dog, take you on a hike to the waterfalls or along the many trails. All the staff of Luna Lodge are marvelous, food was absolutely yummy and fresh, and my 5 night stay was wonderful! I raved about this experience (April, 2012) to everyone and already have had friends take the same trip on my say so, and they loved it as well. I checked off so many birds -- close to 50 -- plus others I didn't get written down, as well as monkeys, lizards, insects, snakes, coatis, etc. Loved sitting on my deck, in my rocking chair, watching the hummingbirds flitting around and looking out to sea. Never have enjoyed yoga so much as with Lana, on the deck, looking out over the forest, with Macaws flying by -- unique and unforgettable! So much more to say...........!
