Finca Luna Nueva is an co Lodge with a Regenerative Farm in the Northern Rainforest of Costa Rica. Boasting an intimate experience with primary rainforests.
Finca Luna Nueva is a living classroom where regenerative agriculture practices are cultivated and people convene with nature. A birders paradise where you can also enjoy chocolate making workshops, night walks, medicinal plant tours and just some time to soak in the rainforest. Ideal for families, couples and retreats, to disconnect from the routine and reconnect with nature.
A PARADISE AND A LIVING CLASSROOM
Can they be both? A paradise and a living classroom? A place where families vacation and have fun, together with a place of learning?
Yes, but don’t worry – it’s always fun. When you visit you’ll often see members of their staff walking around with binoculars and cameras, tracking down a three-toed sloth, a red-eyed tree frog, a howler monkey, a keel-billed toucan, or a morpho butterfly. Or racing off to see their newest calf or the blossoming of a rare flower. Or going off into the rainforest to see new growth that rapidly emerges after the fall of giant tree. Every experience is fresh and new here: the rainforest and their farm change moment by moment, often dramatically, and those who live there are in a state of constant awe and gratitude. So yes, it’s a place of learning, but the learning happens effortlessly and is led by the heart.
Guests often write that their experiences at our farm and lodge were life changing – in a very good way. When you visit you’ll see first hand how they can grow food regeneratively and in harmony with Nature. You’ll learn how humans and forests can exist together and actually support one another. Most importantly, we hope you’ll feel the joy of connecting to a healthy ecosystem, rich with biodiversity, birdsong, and beauty.
A Tradition of Care
"Finca Luna Nueva is an expression of my devotion to farming and biodiversity. In a deep sense, it is my life’s work. Here at Luna Nueva we practice 'egenerative agriculture,' which means we produce nourishing foods while also regenerating soil and reversing climate change."
— Steven Farrell FOUNDER
FEED THE SOUL AND THE BODY
It’s time for you to experience yoga in the rainforest! Their spacious bamboo yoga pavilion is surrounded by tropical flowers and exotic trees and bathed in the sounds and energy of the jungle. The platform comfortably accommodates yoga and meditation retreats. Their retreat center also features a spring-fed and solar-heated jacuzzi and a spa staffed by a professional masseuse trained in many therapeutic modalities. And while you’re feeding your soul you’ll enjoy our farm-to-table dining featuring produce and dairy from their regenerative farm.
PEACE, ADVENTURE, & A LITTLE BIT OF LUXURY
They are a rainforest lodge and educational center, and their guests are offered a mix of peace, adventure, and a little bit of luxury. Many people visit and never leave the grounds of their estate. They have miles of hiking trails through the forest, farm, and fields, and even advanced birders or professional herbalists will be thrilled to take in the biodiversity surrounding us. They are only 25 minutes by car from La Fortuna, the adventure capital of Costa Rica. Their reception department can arrange expeditions and adventures that meet your adrenalin requirements. You can take photo safaris up lazy jungle rivers, white-water raft with expert guides, bird watch in the cloud forest, take strenuous hikes up volcanos and swim in crater lakes. Or you can lounge at their glorious pool and drift off in hammocks. It’s all there, in a setting that we call “rustic but majestic.”
Their Eco Story
WELCOME TO THE GREAT HOPE OF REGENERATIVE AGRICULTURE
Every day at Finca Luna Nueva is a step in the direction of greater soil fertility, healthier food, and a replenished ecosystem. They recognize that mankind hasn’t always been kind to our precious planet, and we need to deal with excess CO2 in the atmosphere, the dramatic loss of topsoil and fertility, floods and droughts, and the collapse of biodiversity. With regenerative agriculture they have a tool to repair the damage. They are at the forefront of this agricultural revolution, teaching regenerative techniques to people from all over the world. And when you take their farm tour you’ll get an introduction into their work and mission.
They love being an eco-lodge for guests to come to stay, but more than anything else this is a place where people can come to see regenerative agriculture. They are a place of hope for a lot of people. One of the few living examples of how we can manage our way through climate change with abundance! There is a solution which leaves the soil more fertile, which utilizes rain, which makes the food we grow more nourishing. Witnessing and being part of this planet-altering effort is the best part about it.
