Cala Luna Boutique Hotel, Villas & Spa, is a relaxed getaway surrounded by nature and set back from Langosta Beach on the outskirts of Tamarindo on the Nicoya Peninsula.

Accommodations range from one bedroom Deluxe Rooms that suit couples perfectly to Villas expansive enough to sleep up to six, which are great for families or friends traveling together. The Villas also come with their very own private plunge pools. Cala Luna's decor and layout is very contemporary in keeping with its jungle back-drop and the grounds are covered in mature tropical trees and plants, all of which surround the large free-form swimming pool at its center.

Cala Luna is now Italian-run and the fabulous menu in the open-air Cala Moresca restaurant reflects this influence and the food is causing somewhat of a buzz in the region.

Cala Luna is steps from Langosta Beach a vantage point for dramatic sunsets, adjacent to Tamarindo Beach which is Central America’s mecca for surfing. Offshore sport fishing (sailfish, marlin and other prized species) is highly recommended. Exceptional scuba dive sites dot the stretch of Pacific coastline and several PADI dive shops service the property. Easy-to-access daily activities are 18-hole golf, tennis, relaxing horseback riding and thrilling canopy tour at Cala Luna’s finca (farm), bird watching and nature trails.
