At Finca Luna Nueva, guests are encouraged to reconnect with nature by living the simple life. In 1994, Steven Farrell – a self-described health-conscious hippy – opened a small, organic herbal farm near La Fortuna, the gateway to Arenal Volcano national park. Since then, the project has grown into a 207-acre biodynamic farm and an eco lodge built from fallen trees. On the Sacred Seed garden tour, guests can smell and taste the results of the biodynamic process and learn about the healing properties of trees and plants on guided walks in the neighbouring rainforest. Afterwards, wallow in the ozonated pool or solar-heated hot tub, or salute the sun from the yoga platform ensconced in jungle greenery, before some fine organic dining.
