Cala Luna

Designed by a renowned architect, Cala Luna offers pared down elegance in a perfect beach front setting, where you’re free to spend each day precisely as you wish. Venture into the rainforest and experience the excitement of a zipline ride among the treetops, hike the rim of a volcano, marvel at the plentiful birdlife, explore the mystical world of the mangroves or ride a horse through the lush countryside.

Then there’s the beach! Whether you want to test your mettle surfing or paddle-boarding or prefer a more relaxed catamaran cruise, it’s all yours for the taking. Of course it’s just possible that might want to lie back in your poolside cabana and doze to the gentle sound of the waves, rousing yourself to savour some delicious culinary treats from the restaurant. Add to this tastefully furnished rooms equipped with all the 21st century mod cons you could need, and you have the essence of Cala Luna.

 

on-the-beachWhy go to Cala Luna?

Come to Cala Luna for relaxing downtime, to stroll along an uncrowded white sand beach, swim in the clear sea, enjoy the freshest fish and seafood, submit to the expert touch of an experienced masseuse, sail into the sunset aboard a catamaran… This is a perfect place to unwind. But there’s more if you want it. Watersports, rainforest canopy tours, bird watching trips, horse riding and, in season, the chance to witness hatchings as they emerge from turtle eggs and begin their lives with a scramble down to the sea. Smiling service and luxurious accommodation are all part of the mix, too.

Howler monkeyWildlife around Cala Luna

The hotel’s gardens are visited by birds, butterflies and howler monkeys, and on a boat trip into the nearby mangroves you can expect to see caimans, iguanas, snakes, monkeys and a variety of birds. In season (roughly September to April) you can visit the beach in front of the hotel at night to see leatherback and green sea turtles swim to shore to dig deep pits into which they lay up to 150 eggs before heading back to the sea, and about 2 months later the hatchlings emerge. A little further afield Palo Verde National Park is a bird watcher’s delight, with herons, storks, ibis, flycatchers, hummingbirds, toucans all vying for attention, and the dry tropical forest’s only population of red macaws.
