Over La Leona Eco Lodge


U rijdt met de auto naar Carate in het zuidoosten van het schiereiland. De auto blijft bewaakt achter, u wandelt over het strand in een uurtje naar het kamp, bagage volgt.

Het tentenkamp ligt ver weg van de bewoonde wereld, naast de ingang van het nationale park. Alle 20 tenten staan op een houten vlonder vrij van de grond. In ons arrangement bieden wij 2 soorten tenten aan: Oceanview- en de Monkey’s Camp Tent. Ze beschikken beide over privé voorzieningen maar zonder elektriciteit. De Monkey’s Camp tenten liggen achter de Oceanview Tent waardoor ze iets dieper in het bos liggen.

Vanuit de lodge worden tegen betaling verschillende hikes en excursies aangeboden.

Corcovado National Park beslaat ongeveer de helft van het schiereiland Osa. Het park is prachtig: u loopt hier door ruige jungle, en hoort de woeste golven tegen het verderop gelegen strand slaan. De vele bontgekleurde ara-papegaaien spreken tot de verbeelding. Een prachtige wandeling door het Corcovado National Park is een gedenkwaardig onderdeel van uw Costa Rica rondreis. Daarnaast zijn er nog veel meer mogelijkheden; neem hiervoor contact met ons op.

"great escape"

In the rain forest, the most popular and beautiful place in Costa Rica, Corcovado National Park, La Leona is located just by the entrance to the park. It's really convenient location for those who like to wake up with sunrise ready to go explore the nature surrounded by. The Lodge is located away from the main road at Carate. You can get there either walking 20 minutes through the forest or beach. To Carate you can get by shuttle $10 or taxi $ 100. 40 minutes "forest road" ride. It is a really good escape from the everyday city rush and noise. It's right on the beach. Great customer service and food (easy to request vegan or so) Tants are really nice and no matter what row you stay in the ocean is right in front of you. Very romantic and unique atmosphere!!!!

"Absolute Bliss in one of the most amazing locations I have visited!"

Having just returned from a fantastic 3 night stay and already planning my next trip I thought I would leave a review of this fantastic Eco Lodge. To set a few things straight... 1) Yes you have to walk 3.5km to this lodge from Carate (after a 1.5 hour taxi or 2 hour Collectivo Ride from Puerto Jimenez) but this adds to the appeal - you are staying on the edge of a National Park that contains 4% of the entire planets biodiversity! 2) There is no power in the rooms or WiFi at this property - this added to the experience and really allowed guests to relax and embrace a slower and more relaxing pace of life. - Pura Vida! 3) You will be staying in a Safari Tent style accommodation with a cold shower but this is perfect given the setting! You can hear the sea and wildlife all day and all night - but isn’t this why you would select this location? (Bring ear plugs - a staple requirement in Central America anyway!) 4) Some guests seem to have complained about the food. We both really enjoyed the food on our visit and it was easily at restaurant standard with a great variety of food - maybe some guests are used to larger portions but we found them perfect even after 3 treks a day! Now time for my actual review... We arrived later on in the day having taken the Collectivo from Puerto Jimenez ($9 pp from next to the Hardware store) to Carate and walked in along the Jungle Trail and we were greeted by Jorge at the bar who welcomed us with a warm smile and a lovely cold drink! He explained a few things about the tents, meal times and the times when we could charge our electronic devices at the main bar area. He then personally showed us to our tent which had a perfect view of the sea and the gardens of the property where you could sit and watch birds (we saw many different species just from our veranda!). After a welcome shower (cold water - but well received in such heat!) we returned to the bar to sit and have a chat with Jorge before dinner - his personality and attitude meant that we spent far more than we would have done otherwise at the bar! Over the next few days we relaxed, ate and went on several tours with Luis - A Corcavado group day tour, night tour and a private afternoon tour to Corcavado! Luis was a fantastic guide who went the extra mile to find interesting animals for us - even in slightly quieter locations the scenery is enough to blow your mind! Joel the manager was doing a fantastic job and took a hands on approach to managing the place. It was really refreshing to see him assisting in the day running of the place and we even saw him helping with constructing new paths on the grounds. As a side note - all of the staff we interacted with were friendly and seemed to enjoy and be grateful for their jobs - very refreshing! During our trip we also went on the self guided trails within the grounds and managed to see an array of animals and got some fantastic views of the local landscape. We were very sad to leave this place and loved every second of our visit - don’t let other negative reviews put you off! Most of the complaints seem to come from people who haven’t done their research - our stay was exactly as expected and actually far exceeded our expectations!

"Advanture at the edge of a rainforest"

At the edge of Corcovado National Park and several kilometers from the nearest automobile sits a peaceful lodge with a multi star restaurant service. Walking to the lodge on a jungle trail or on a wide Pacific beach makes one feel like an old time adventurer. A unique location on the Osa Peninsula!

"Rustic Tent Cabin Setting"

You reach La Leona camp by walking about 1 mile on the beach or on a slightly inland trail. It had been fairly dry so we had no problems walking across the small streams. Make sure your carry-in bag contains everything essential to get you through the first night. We had ridden out from Pudrto Jimenez on the afternoon Collectivo, dropped our luggage off at the La Leona drop location, and then after arriving at camp, were told because of the high tide, our bags would arrive sometime the next day. Wish they had communicated that info in our morning email exchange when I told them when we be arriving. The Ecolodge is really a bunch of screened wall tents on wood platforms with a central dining/bar facility. Some tent cabins have ensuite outdoor toliets and cold water showers. None have electricity and are lit by furnished candles. The tent side screens are quite good at stopping bugs, but they also greatly hinder any air movement. We were there when it was over 90 degrees with over 90% humidity making sleeping a challenge. It also didn't help my sleep thinking that our tent was about to be swept to sea by the continuous roaring ocean waves. BTW, it wasn't, none of the tents were ever, in any way, affected by the surf, but if you're not use to that continuous sound don't be surprised if you wake up throughout the night with the same thoughts I had. Almost everyone we talked to there had the same experience. Two of our three morning we were awakened by the sounds of barking dogs belonging either to La Leona visitors or those of the next door Biological Station. Not exactly the sounds of nature we were expecting to wake up to. Food was extremely average, and expensive for the quality. Totalled together, ensuite lodging and all meals costs about $240 a night. I had picked the camp for its closeness to the park boundary, thinking we could get in the park further than other guests from further away lodges. Turns out we got in about 3 miles on our guided day hike, just about as far as everyone else. All day and overnight park visitors walk the same trail. One morning we encountered over 80 other visitors. Its a wonder you see any wildlife at all. Was it a jungle wilderness experience? No, not really. Did we see lots of wildlife? No, not really, saw much more in the Matapalo area. Would I recommend La Leona to others? If you've never been to a tropical seashore setting before, like eating cafeteria food, a heavy sleeper who doesn't mind a little heat, and want a safe and secure visit to the Corcovado National Park, La Leona Ecolodge might meet your needs.

"Relaxing ‘Jungle’ Experience"

First of all, you need to realize that this is not a fancy resort. It is, however, right on the Pacific Ocean, within a few hundred meters of an entrance into Corcovado National Park. The accommodations are nice, comfy tent cabins with decks and Adirondack chairs. Ours (#14) had an ensuite bathroom, with cool water shower (our favorite part!!). [Shared-bath tents are a bit less expensive.] The main ‘lodge’ has a bar, and seating for dinner, and there are some hammocks, chairs and benches overlooking the beach as well. You check in and book tours with Joel, after being greeted and briefed by Jorge. You will need to bring flashlights, sunscreen and bug repellant. You will want long pants for night hikes (they have some rubber boots to lend). The food is adequate, but nothing special. We had a B&B package, so breakfast was included. I’m not sure all rooms are like that. Breakfast is always fresh fruit, scrambled eggs, and either toast or pancakes. Tea, cold water, juice and coffee are available at all times. We did not eat any lunches at the lodge ($20/pp), but did eat 3 dinners, which are $25/pp. We had pork, chicken and fish, cooked veggies, and rice or (instant?!) mashed potatoes. You can purchase beer. Wine or mixed drinks as well. (Beer $5, wine $8, mixed drinks $9+). We booked two hikes through the lodge. Both were led by Rolando, a local young man. We went on a 6-hour hike into the National Park ($55) as well as a night hike ($25). He is excellent, and a wonderful person. This is a beautiful area of Costa Rica, although we were saddened to see so much litter (mainly plastic of all sorts) on the beach. We picked up quite a bit, and Rolando said that they do litter removal on occasion. Another frustrating thing was the number of dogs that roamed around and barked. Not conducive to wildlife feeling safe! There was a turtle nest on the beach that had been dug into (presumably by a dog) and we watched as a Caracara (large eagle-like bird) ate several eggs, and dug out several more. **BE SURE to bring a small overnight bag with you if you leave your luggage at the La Leona base camp to be brought by horse cart, especially if you arrive in the afternoon. Your luggage may not be delivered until the following morning. All in all, this was a fun adventure. The cost is a bit high for what you get. You might want to research other “eco-lodges” to see what they include. If you are ok being a bit rustic, having cafeteria quality food, and having to use candles and flashlights, this will be a relaxing and very enjoyable spot. If you require more luxury, look elsewhere.
