  • 10.0.Exceptional

    La Leona is am amazing space just off the beach, nestled into the jungle, totally cut off from the rest of the world as there is no cell signal and no wifi. We loved it, and the two guys running it while we were there were fab. Food was tasty (although certainly not cheap, and there are no other options), and they helped us organise a guided tour into Corcovado which we would definitely recommend (going with a guide also helps support the local economy on the peninsula which has been really suffering with COVID, but even without that it was totally worthwhile). It does take some getting used to sleeping so close to the crashing waves of the pacific, but we had a wonderful time.

    Great Experience

    La Leona Eco Lodge is difficult to get to, but it's well worth the effort. The cliffside ocean view is stunning and the area is buzzing with wildlife: four species of monkeys, macaws, toucans and dart frogs. The tents have no electricity, but you are able to charge devices in the dining area. Highly recommend 4x4 due to water crossings.

    Peaceful Paradise

    LaLeona is an amazing place to stay for the peace and adventure. The people working there are friendly and so helpful. The journey there is part of the appeal for the adventurous persons. Bring your things in a backpack and leave heavy luggage at the office. Bring Benadryl, there are bugs that bite and cause itching in the jungle and on the beach - and comfortable hiking shoes-plenty of socks and extra shirts. Wear light colored clothes so you can see the very small bugs and just brush them off before they have a chance to bite you. The bugs seem to be attracted to some people and not others - quite random. Despite the bugs - the place is truly magical. I highly recommend it if you enjoy hiking and adventure. Not for the HM crowd. 😊 **No stores, or medical within hours.

    Overall amazing place to stay, but a few notes 1. Bring lots if snacks, I repeat they do not have snacks 2. The food thay they do have is seriously lacking. If I am paying 25 bucks a plate, it better be a nice meal. I'm all down for the everyone gets the same thing everynight. But this stuff was inedible on occasion. Wayyyy too much salt, and I was not the only person saying this. One night both me and my partner got really sick. Like explosive, it didnt help that we did the night hike right after dinner either. Not pretty. If its lasanga night, I'd pass if I were you. 3. Don't do the rainforest hike, its just the same trail you can walk by yourself and the time of day they schedule it you wont see any wildlife 4. What's with the finger?

    Great place to stay. Be prepared for the walk in and high humidity, depending on season. Tent cabin was comfortable, Shower excellent, pathways well made, food very good, Did day tour to Corcovado, night walk, and early morning birding walk, all led by Alvaro, excellent guide, very knowledgeable. Saw lots of wildlife. Other staff were friendly, helpful and considerate. Special thanks to Yassi (spelling?) who went above and beyond in helping us get a replacement for a flat tire. All in all a great place, in a spectacular location.

    This place should not be missed if you are in the area and want to get rustic and away from it all. The food, drinks, and hospitality were great.

    A private slice of paradise

    We were drawn to La Leona due to its remoteness and access to Corcovado National Park. We had great wildlife sightings and loved our mountain view tent. It was amazing to wake up in the middle of the night, surrounded by the rain forest sounds. To note - the mountain view tents are quite a trek up the hill, it's not easy to pop up and down! The tents and outside bathrooms are great and very comfortable. The meals are very simple and not worth the money they charge. However the staff at La Leona are fantastic and take a lot of pride in their lodge. Be prepared to pay quite a fee for a 4x4 taxi to Carate ($90 one way per vehicle).

    This property is an opportunity take escape the urbanized world an experience nature with wonderful people ( families , young children, all ages), without having to deal with cooking and housekeeping responsibilities . The place is a true piece of paradise in today’s world . I try to think of something to complain about, and the only thing that comes to mind is the generarator noise for a scheduled period in the early evening so they can charge the batteries for the next 21 hours; In 5 years they will have figured out how to set up even more solar power than they already have. The place is 2.5 kilometers from the nearest road, and several people use motorcycles and an ATV daily for transportation and hailing supplies, which interferes slightly with the paradise aesthetic. I really can’t think of anything else to complain about as this place, the service, the food, the wildlife, are about as clise as most of will ever get to heaven.
