Recent La Fortuna vacation rental reviews

Joanna H. | Jun 2022
Casa ceilo was a dream! The host Curt was very easy to communicate with and very informative. The house was beautiful and very clean. The property is exactly what we wanted. It is secluded and peaceful. Curt was kind enough to give us a quick tour of the property. Having the personal chefs for breakfast and dinner was the best decision we made. Every meal was delicious. We had an amazing stay and we were so sad when it was time to leave. We will definitely be back!!

    For the past decade, this small town of only 8,000 residents has welcomed over 90 percent of tourists that come to Costa Rica, thanks in large part to the photography opportunities afforded by the frequent eruptions of Arenal, the overactive stratovolcano looming on the horizon.

    But that’s just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to amazing encounters with nature in the area. So grab your camera and book one of our La Fortuna vacation rentals for the trip of a lifetime!

    Where is La Fortuna, Costa Rica?

    Lying in the north-central corner of Costa Rica, La Fortuna is about 80 miles north of San José, Costa Rica’s most populous city, and about 77 miles from the Pacific Coast in Puntarenas Province. One of the town’s main draws is its proximity to windsurfing and other water sports on Lake Arenal, the country’s largest body of freshwater, which sits 15 miles west via Route 142.

    Things to Do in La Fortuna

    Eco-tourism runs deep throughout Costa Rica, and there’s no better place to knock out all those bucket list adventures than in La Fortuna. Start your outdoor exploration with a trip to the towering La Fortuna waterfall, which plunges 246 feet down a rocky, moss-covered cliff on the southwestern side of town.

    On your way back to your vacation rental, stop off at the Rainforest Chocolate Tour for a delicious, hands-on workshop explaining how local varieties of chocolate are made, or continue the water-themed fun with a dip in any of area’s geothermal hot springs, including Ecotermales, Titokú, and Termales Los Laureles.

    Take your taste buds on an adventure with the vibrant flavors of La Fortuna’s culinary scene. Boasting 75 restaurants to choose from, you’re sure to find something that pleases every palette. Order a fresh coffee and a delicious dish of arroz con pollo - a local specialty - at My Coffee, or sample other Costa Rican favorites like casado and gallo pinto at Soda Víquez, La Parada, or La Choza de Laurel.

    Arenal Volcano National Park

    No trip to La Fortuna would be complete without a visit to Arenal Volcano National Park. Home of Cerro Chato and Arenal volcanoes, emerald green lagoons, 850 species of birds, and 121 square miles of dense, mountainous jungle, you'll find everything within this incredible park! From whitewater rafting on the Toro, Balsa, and Peñas Blancas Rivers, hiking through the jungle canopy on hanging bridges, spelunking in the Venado Caves, and boating on Lake Arenal, you'll never have a dull day!

    Carry your camera to snap photos of the park’s impressive variety of wildlife, which includes coatis, two- and three-toed sloths, jaguars, tapirs, capuchin monkeys, deer, snakes, and many more species. Hike through the lush forest floor with giant ferns, orchids, and over 100 types of trees until you reach a lookout point to capture a postcard-perfect picture of such jaw-dropping landscapes as Cerro Chato's dormant crater, majestic waterfalls, and the mighty, flowing waters of the Río Chiquita.

    Boundless beauty, a world-renowned national park, and attractions for all ages are all part of the La Fortuna experience. Come find where the Pura Vida spirit thrives during an unforgettable stay in one of our La Fortuna vacation rentals.
