Self-Guided Activities at Luna Lodge


Encounter a great variety of plants, trees, birds, insects, mammals, and, of course, fresh pure water, as you enjoy a nature hike around the Luna Lodge property. Visit the three waterfalls, take a dip in pure water, and get to know your surroundings.

Golden Trail Loop

A short walk from the lodge, this hike introduces you to many varieties of trees such as the cow tree, monkey comb, and black crocodile. You will also find the much utilized “suita palm”, the most common palm for thatching roofs in the local area.

This loop trail goes up from a meandering creek below Luna Lodge up to the peak of a ridge overlooking the vast rainforest.  There is an incredible Lookout Point at the top of the ridge with an exquisite view.

Be on the lookout for monkeys, sloths, coatimundis, tayras, armadillos… who knows!!



With no light pollution, the night sky is amazing. Our telescope is always pointed skyward and guides or books are available to help spot specific constellations.
