La Fortuna San Carlos Costa Rica

Coming from Liberia or San Jose takes about 3 hours by car and a little longer by bus.
The local busses are super affordable, comfortable and safe, they can pretty much take you anywhere in the whole country.
Coming from Liberia is hot and straight for the first 3 quarters; the final leg is up in the mountains, through the rain forest and around Lake Arenal La Fortuna was designed to offer spectacular views of the active Arenal Volcano.

The central park is full of tropical plants, flowers and lined with benches where you can sit and enjoy the volcanoes activity. Take a 10 minute drive to the North West side of the Volcano to witness the most recent activity.

The Arenal Volcano has its own National Park (Parque National Vulcan Arenal) This almost 30,000 acre national park allows visitors to get an even better understanding of the Arenal Volcano and a much closer look.  The Flora and fauna found it this primary rain forest is some of the newest on earth.

There's a pile of  activities available from La Fortuna and area the majority of them with the volcano in your sites. The most popular tours in the area include: Adventure and relax in the various hot springs, White Water Rafting , Rapelling down waterfalls, Ziplining through the rain forest, Horseback Riding in the tropical jungle, through rivers and alongside the volcano, ATV adventure and more…

Costa Rica White Water Rafting

There are plenty of Nature Hikes in the area; the one I highly recommend is the climb to Cerro Chatto Lake.  Volcan Chatto is a dormant volcano; its crater is filled from hundreds of year of rain fall. It is an intense uphill hike to over 3,500 feet but I assure you it is worth every step of the way.  Park hours are from 8am to 5pm and the entrance fee is currently $15

The La Fortuna Waterfall is another one of Mother Nature’s tours. Take a short 4klm hike from La Fortuna and you will be standing up top of the 230 foot waterfall.  Gaze upon the power of water as it rolls of and dumps into the fresh rejuvenating pools bellow. Hike down the base to the pools to recharge, relax and take some photos. Waterfalls are open from 8-5pm and have an entrance fee of $15
