The lodge consists of a house (four rooms), a cabin (six people) and a camping platform, all nestled between Cerro Alto and Cerro Nápoles, 2 km from San Pablo de León Cortés. Its owners have 20 years of reforesting the five-hectare farm with tall endemic oaks, today an endangered species. This secondary forest, also full of fruit trees suitable for the highlands, is part of the Los Santos Biological Corridor, which joins the Los Quetzales National Park and the Los Santos Forest Reserve.
Visitors can, in addition to enjoying the natural beauty of Cabo Luna by walking along its trails, enjoy breakfast, lunch, or dinner, prepared with vegetables, and legumes—such as red beans, cubaces, hot peppers, cherry tomatoes, cilantro, celery, etc—eggs, chicken meat, and fruits, such as peaches and oranges, produced at the farm. The vast majority of food is prepared in a wood-fired kitchen or in a traditional clay oven. Costa Rican dishes such as olla de carne or tortillas can be prepared, but also international dishes such as paella or pizza.
Cabo Luna does not produce coffee, like the vast majority of farms in the Los Santos area, but it does take advantage of it. Its owner, Carlos Arrieta, worked as a biologist, but since he retired he has become a barista. That is why visitors can also enjoy a good coffee, a cappuccino, an espresso, or a coffee-based cocktail prepared by Carlos and with specialty coffee from a micro-processing facility that is close to the farm.
The main house is very bohemian, displaying a diverse collection of Costa Rican antiques and art that has been amassed over many years by Carlos.
All the people who work on the farm have access to food and lodging, and when there is profit from the collective work they do, it is shared between the parties.
In Cabo Luna you can also organize tours in the area, including a trip in Carlos’s 1971 Land Rover to the Pacific coast.
