The Host: Been Living in Costa Rica for 13 years, my experience and knowledge of the lifestyle, cultures and adventures is available to help others discover the Magic of La Fortuna and other parts of this special country.
La Fortuna is an enjoyable experience for all , with flowing rivers, natural hot springs, waterfalls, the 33 mile fresh water Lake Arenal, Cerro Chatto Crater Lake , butterfly gardens and a large variety of amenities. The many vacationers who find the Pure Vida return home feeling satisfied and relaxed.
Visitors can get to Fortuna by Bus, Car or Plane. The road from both of Costa Rica’s airports are paved, well marked and scenic. The plane is a 12 passenger that flies low allowing you to see Costa Rica’s beautiful landscapes; sit back and enjoy the many waterfalls, rivers and volcanoes.
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 are plenty of nature hikes in the area; the one I highly recommend is the climb to Cerro Chatto Lake. Vulcan 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
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
La Fortuna and all the amenities anyone could need is a 15 minute walk or 2 minute cab ride from the cabins.

My husband & I stayed here for 2 nights and loved it! We had a car which was great because the walking distance to town and attractions are quite far. The cabina was exactly what we wanted and just how we imagined from the photos. The fan in the rooms were perfect for keeping us cool at night and the mornings were amazing as you are right on the edge of the jungle. We even had an armadillo walk by our patio one night! The kitchen was basic but had everything we needed and the tv & wifi was a nice addition. Breakfast each morning was amazing and the family were so friendly and kind. Highly recommend!
First and foremost, Jonathan is amazing, simply put. He was so quick to return my emails/texts, and even helped us book a zip lining tour at 10:30 pm the night before. He truly understands not only La Fortuna, but other areas of Costa Rica as well, and is willing to help however he can. I would very highly recommend him.
Now on to the Cabinas. They were exactly what we were looking for. A place that is clean, simple, and part of the ambiance of the area. We loved the location, and Felix, the owner, is a gem. This is a family owned business, they are honest, hardworking, and we felt very safe.
Gorgeous place with beautiful garden, birds, river and views that I recommend to anyone looking for a quiet retreat in La Fortuna.
Unfortunately it did not match the description: Jonathan and his wife moved away from the place and Paradise Adventures are no longer onsite. Local host seemed really sweet but did not speak English so we could not communicate. There was no WIFI and since we do not speak Spanish, we could not ask the host for any information. Description should be updated so there is no wrong expectations and guests can enjoy the site, which is indeed idyllic.
Had a great time at the cabinas. Enjoyed the river behind the property immensely as well as the local sights. We were greeted by Jonnie upon our arrival who is a true champ and a real pleasure to speak with. He was happy to help us with whatever we needed and his wife Sophia is also great.
A short walk up the hill towards the waterfall you will find delicious cold coconuts for drinking at a dollar each. Also an even shorter walk up the hill is a nice little bar/restaurant (Casa Luna) with a daily happy hour between 5pm-7pm. The folks directly across the street sell cheap suds as well as fresh pressed sugar cane juice. His is also suppose to be in the process of opening up a fresh juice and smoothie bar in the near future.
Overall we liked the location and the proximity to everything. It's a nice walk to town and a $5 cab ride back.
The ride from Playa Potrero...was about 4 hours so we arrived at night.The Cabin was so comfortable after a long ride.Very clean,very spacious.The next AM opening the door you could see volcano in the distance and the birds were singing. We've then had breakfast. Walked over to meet Jonathan he had several suggestions what we could do.He was extremely helpful and has extreme love of the area.I wish we could of stayed longer .Will go back and maybe build up courage to zip line :)..thank you for your kindness !Enjoy your beautiful family !was wonderful to meet you all!
This is the best experience on AirB'n'b so far.
Cabinas are great,but the hosts are super stars.always there to help with the best recommendations. I am sending my friends for sure.thx Joonie and Sophia and Valentina!!
Me and my boyfriend stayed in the Cabins for 3 nights and enjoyed this location very much. The river is right outside the cabins and La Fortuna waterfall is close by, it is beautiful. This is a great location if you are looking for something quiet and peaceful, yet still close to town. The cabins are basic, but always clean. Learning how to get hot water in the shower was interesting but we figured it out. The family that owns the cabins are very nice people but do not speak English, so having Jonathan and Sofia around was vital in our experience. Jon and Sofia helped us whenever we had questions & hooked us up with an awesome zip line/ waterfall repel tour. Great experience for a good price. Breakfast was free (which was a nice surprise) and cooked by the owners of the cabins every morning- very sweet-Thanks!
super nice people, enjoyed our stay.
Jonathan and his wife & family were most generous hosts, and a font of useful information on La Fortuna and on Costa Rica generally. Basic rooms, but if you need anything just ask them or the owners.
Great location, close to town (15 minute walk or $4 cab ride) and close to the La Fortuna waterfall. A river runs behind the cabins, less than a hundred yards away. Felix and Nini, the hosts, are extremely nice and helpful and make a tasty and typical Tico breakfast.
Johnny who manages the site for them is an awesome and helpful guide. He helps run local tours and has excellent recommendations. I would recommend talking to him before booking with others as he can get good deals.
I would recommend Las Cabinas La Catarata to anyone and will most certainly return!
