A Truly Unique Location!
The Luna Lodge offers its guests three different types of accommodation: the Bungalows, the Hacienda Rooms and the tents. All of the room types have their own perks, but what they all have in common is to guarantee you an unforgettable stay! Imagine waking up in one of the tents to an one-of-a-kind view over the tropical rainforest. Or choose to stay in one of the glamorous bungalows, with your own private bathroom with a bathtub! With staying at Luna Lodge you did not only choose a comfortable and exclusive Lodge but also the incredible and remote location of Carate!
Carate is one of the most remote locations in Costa Rica. It is situated in the south of the Osa peninsula, right next to the Corcovado National Park. Because of the distant location, the guests of Luna Lodge are surrounded by mostly untouched rainforest and in the Corcovado National Park they might even see rare and exotic animal species living freely.
To get here, you can take a domestic flight from San José into the town of Puerto Jimenez. Pick up a rental car or private taxi and drive down the coast and through the rainforest until the road ends. Then, when you think you can’t drive any further. Drive up a deep river gorge with multiple water crossings, up the hill to this fantastic natural paradise. Or you can also take an 8-minute charter flight across the Peninsula to Carate. They will pick you up. We’re sure that you’ll agree that it is worth every bit of the effort to get here!
