Interaction with Guests
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.

No Smoking in Cabins no noise past 10
I stayed in the cabins with three girl friends for a few days as our first stop in Costa Rica. They are about a mile off of the main road in town, and on the road that leads to the waterfall. The family that ran our cabins was so kind, and despite our lack of Spanish, they were able to help us arrange activities. We loved the birds that Felix would feed each morning during breakfast, and our hammock on the back porch.
Jonathan was amazing! Right from the initial email he responded quickly and thoroughly. I always felt very "in the know" and well taken care of. If you want to stay in a sweet and clean cabin in the jungle that is walking distance from the town and close to all of the "must sees" of the lovely La Fortuna check this place out. We loved it and our hosts were brilliant:)
Thanks for the positive feedback Jamie , I treat people the way I would like to be treated while visiting a foreign country. Sharing my knowledge of the area to help others find what they may be looking for is an enjoyable opportunity to help and AirBnB is a great way to make that happen. Pura Vida!
Wir haben kurz im Office gehalten, das im Stadtzentrum liegt, um zu fragen, wie man zu den Cabañas kommt. Danach fanden wir es ganz einfach.
Die Häuschen liegen ausserhalb von La Fortuna, weshalb ich es nur Leuten empfehlen würde, die ein Auto haben. Dort ist es aber wunderschön an einer Erhöhung mit Blick auf den Fluss gelegen. In der grossen Anlage kann man wunderbar draussen sitzen und die vielen Vögel beobachten. Besonders witzig ist der Kolibri, der dort als Haustier fungiert und einem 20 cm vor dem Gesicht rumfliegt.
Die Cabañas selbst sind einfach aber verfügen über das wichtigste. Es gibt einen grossen Kühlschrank, die kleine Kochnische erlaubt aber höchstens ganz einfache Sachen zu kochen. Das Frühstück ist mittelmässig.
Während unseres Aufenthaltes liessen wir uns dann von Jonathan bezüglich Aktivitäten beraten und buchten Wild Water Raftig, was das Highlight unserer Reise wurde. Die Guides Dany und Co. waren alle super witzig und machten das Raften zu einem unvergesslichen Erlebnis!
Very nice place to stay. Hosts are very nice, breakfast was delicious. Lot's of birds to watch while eating breakfast. However, we were driving and had a very hard time finding it. The women at the main office gave us Wrong directions initially, then poor directions after we wasted 20 minutes on the wrong directions. Bottom line -- it is on a side road - and you need the name of the place across the street. Follow their signs, and then look across the street and that is where you are going.
My travel partner and I loved the Cabinas La Catarata. The entire property was simply magical, buzzing with birds and wildlife with amazing views of Volcán Arenal from our front porch. The 2 bedroom cabina itself had all the basic necessities and felt safe and comfortable. Hot water, TV, and WiFi were all pluses. The on-site property managers were very kind and helpful.
If you are okay with sparse accommodations, I highly recommend the Cabinas La Catarata.
He was very helpful. Felix was always there and Jonathan made sure we knew that he could be contacted and available if we needed him. The cabin was nice. We had a little trouble with the wifi but all around it was great. It was just far enough away from town that it was quiet but close enough that we could go in for dinner!
This place is awesome! You can feel the love. Felix our host was very friendly and helpful. We hung out all night with Jai, a long time renter on the property. She showed us her garden and even read our tarot cards. Much gratitude to her kindness. The only negative was the internet wasn't working so prepared. We would definitely stay here again.
