Located in the lush confines of Corcovado’s tropical landscape and a idyllic Pacific Coast stretch, La Leona Eco Lodge is a spirited medley of plush holiday amenities, sustainable eco tourism, a rich native cultural legacy and several spectacular nature based experiences (the Pacific sunset being one of the highlights of the plethora of heady natural sightings). The lodge is owned by a local family-the Morales Polanco, who strive to keep this unpretentious little family retreat as down to earth and uncontrived as possible. That doesn’t in any way come in Leona Lodge’s way of offering its patrons world class facilities and out of the world nature induced sensory experiences. Leona’s surroundings have had the distinction of being described by none other than the National Geographic as “one of the planet’s most biologically intense places”. The lodge is spread across 36.5 hectares of a thriving rainforest and combines the best of all comforts and natural elements that every Costa Rican vacationer seeks.
Activities and Amenities
The unassuming Leo Eco Lodge is a quaint country style natural ambiance sporting property that also comes with a variety of cultural experiences to make it the ideal starting point for nature and adventure based activities. Guests can savor the impeccable charm of the Corcovado region by taking a guided tour of the forest or going on a hiking trip along the Madrigal Rive. A thrilling night tour that allows visitors to spot the region’s majestic wildlife (monkeys, tapirs, puma) creatures is also much sought after. In addition to these encounters, visitors can enjoy kayaking sessions and horseback tours. There are also day long trips to the neighboring Corcovado National Park and the Sirena Rainforest. Lenona Eco Lodge also organizes some seasonal tours such as the Carate Trail Tour, the adventure packed gold diggers tour and a once in lifetime kind of phenomenal turtle watching tour. Every tour has been organized by taking into consideration the variety of levels and physical capabilities of the guests. La Leona also organizes several private and customized guided tours for their guests.
The lodge’s in-house amenities at the unassumingly beautiful Leono Eco Lodge are the Jardines del Mar restaurant that lets guests savor a nice combination of local and international fare in the setting of the Pacific Ocean. This restaurant sources locally cultivated products to infuse nice, fresh flavors and serves freshly baked bread each day.
The accommodation options at La Leona are more down to earth, minimalist and functional structures in the style of 20 nature tents or cabins. Each cabin features all comfortable facilities along with sporting an intrinsically natural aura. A majority of the cabins have an unusual tropical garden bathroom, and all tent cabins have plush beds with top quality mattresses and soft cotton linen.
Apart from being comfortable and naturally elegant, this lodge also offers attentive service and customized hospitality. The family owned Leona Eco Lodge emphasizes on operating its property like an authentic Costa Rican experience without the frills of the more innately commercial tourist retreats. Its take on a responsible tourism and sustainable development has won Leona Lodge several laurels. A fine example are the lodge’s natural wood platform installations in tents crafted out of reforested wood. Every cabin is expansive and nicely ventilated (with large windows) to prevent a stream of harsh lighting that can disturb the surrounding wildlife. La Leona Eco Lodge’s accommodation options are a medley of practical elegance, rustic charm and space planning ingenuity.
