Interaction with Guests
The Host: Been Living in Costa Rica for 14 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
We had an amazing stay at Jonathan's cabinas. We had everything we needed and it was such a peaceful environment. We had such a great time in La Fortuna and Jonathan was a great help in dealing with our last minute planning. We booked the trip in February and didn't plan much after that. Jonathan was very patient and so helpful! We didn't meet Jonathan while we were in La Fortuna but his staff was amazing! Felix was so welcoming and helpful and even offered to dry our clothes after a day of canyoneering. Many things are close to the cabinas but we had a car and preferred the experience of being able to make our own schedule.
Jonathan was amazingly cooperative, organised, friendly and helpful. He could not do enough for us. My wife and I greatly appreciated his help. We would highly recommend him.
Everything was exactly as described. We spent our honeymoon in la fortuna at cabinas la catarata. Felix the owner at the cabins let my wife feed the hummingbirds which was amazing. They serve the best plantains for breakfast. Jonathan was very prompt with setting up our adventures and was there to answer any ?s. We would definitely stay here again and book all of our Costa Rican adventures through Jonathan at PACR. Once again Thanks for the wonderful memories. PURA VIDA!!!
We arrived at LA Fortuna in the evening and Jonathan's partner welcomed us with kind words and helped with all our questions and needs. The place was much bigger than we expected, clean and well equipped. It was a bit hot but there were fans in the rooms which were very helpful.
The location is great for those who want to go to the waterfall which is about 3 km away. We didn't have a car rented so we just hitchhiked with some tourists from the states who were nice enough to stop for us.
I highly recommend this place :-)
Jonathan was great and helped set us up with an awesome zip lining experience.
Felix, who was at the cabins was the best! he made us breakfast every morning. the cabin was great - good location. beautiful views. the river right below the cabin was rad too. yay la fortuna!
Cabinas La Catarata was perfect for our stay in La Fortuna. The cabins are rustic and have just the essentials you need for a stay in the rainforest. Felix and his son Gabriel were incredible hosts and were extremely accommodating with all our needs.
Jonathan isn't the owner or innkeeper for the cabins but was a great mediator and is extremely quick at responding to any questions. He was also able to set us up with the company that we did our zip lines with, which was an amazing experience.
Thanks for the review Rafael, I have been working with Cabins for almost 5 years now. Cabinas La Catarata is a small rental property and the few of us that do work together at insuring you are comfortable, safe and informed have your interest in mind. The Cabins would not be listed online for these years had I not lived there for 4 years and became part of the team. There is allot more to a visit to La Fortuna than lodging and we are all more comfortable in helping in those areas then letting our guest be taking advantage of downtown La Fortuna. Your experiences effect us. Jonathan Turcotte, AirBnB host for Cabinas La Catarata and Owner Operator, Paradise Adventures Costa Rica.
Our stay was perfect at Cabinas La Catarata. It was a perfect spot right outside of town. The place was exactly as described and very clean. About a $5 cab ride into town. Breakfast was great and our place was cleaned every day. Another cool aspect of this place is that it is very close to the dormant Cerro Chato volcano, which has a great (tough) hike to the top that provides a great view of Arenal. It was also very close to the La Fortuna waterfall, which was amazing.
