The highly experienced owner Luna is passionate about operating this little Osa Paradise and this attitude reflects in everything from the immaculately maintained gardens to the in-house organic garden sitting prettily on a hillside. Notches above a typical pretentious eco-lodge, this place is as real as an environmental tourism philosophy and comfortable vacationing subscribing lodge can get. If the straight from the garden organic foods don’t win the heart of the most ardent eco vacationer, the invigorating sunrise yoga sessions and a strict no cell phones and no internet access policy is sure to earn brownie points with an authentic “back-to-nature” experience seeking guest. The surroundings of this lodge allow people to savor a wide range of experiences from listening to the untamed calls of howler monkeys at dawn to enjoying spiritual massages. This lush 150-acre tropical hideaway is popular with vacationers for its reasonable pricing, homey service and well-maintained appearance.
