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 time at Cabinas Las Catarata and Jonathan was wonderful as well. He was very quick to respond and made sure there wasn't anything else we needed before leaving the cabins. The location was perfect and it was amazing being so close to town and a river. The property was beautiful, the view of the volcano and Cerro Chato was great, and so many birds to see. Felix the owner was very kind. Jonathan was so helpful and very knowledgable. All of his recommendations were excellent. It was nice to have someone to help guide us with the plethora of activities and companies to choose from. He helped us plan white water rafting, which was one of the many highlights of our trip, and zip lining. He genuinely wanted to make sure we had the best experience in Costa Rica, which we did. Thank you Felix and Jonathan. Can't wait to come back!
Cabins were as described and a really pretty part of town to stay in. A 15 minute walk into downtown and probably 20/30 walk to the entrance of the waterfall. Johnny was great and helped us get great prices and tours in town. Very helpful about the trip there as well. Would recommend.
If you're looking for the cabin experience then you must stay here. Felix and his family were very sweet. Every morning we had delicious Costa Rican breakfast ($5 per person). I do also recommend arriving to cabin early in the day. At night it is very dark. The place is hard to find but, if you locate the coffee tour across the street that may help located the cabins easily.
Thanks for the review Nipa, happy that you enjoyed your stay at the Cabins.

I had a absolutely amazing experience with Jonathan, his wife. Great at setting up tours & recommendations on great places to visit & eat. Felix makes an amazing breakfast early, so you are ready for the great adventures. I would go back & stay again. I highly recommend talking & staying here.
They were all great with communication on every aspect
Felix and his wife made us feel so welcome! Felix prepared us wonderful breakfast every morning and showed us numerous animals (ex. hummingbirds) at his property. The cabins are very homey and the hammock on the balcony truly heightens the experience. I would stay here again!
Jonathan was the host with the mostest. Seriously...a total host stud. Couldn't have asked for a better host during our time in La Fortuna. He recommended the zip line adventure and then a hike to the La Fortuna waterfall, and it was one of the best experiences of our lives. We also ate at the two restaurants he recommended--Soda Hormiga and this pizza place and they were BOMB. Jonathan is also really honest--we left our wallet case at his house with our cards and money in it and it was returned totally intact, and he waited up for us to come back and get it. He is clearly passionate about Costa Rica, and being the best and most honest tour guide/host there is. His wife and daughter were so sweet too. Great family. The cabins were perfect too. The hammock in the back, the breakfast, and the lush scenery were exactly what we were hoping for.
We only spoke to Jonathon when we were trying to find the cabins but he was helpful in directing us. The cabin itself was great. Breakfast in the morning was nice however not what we expected (scrambled eggs, toast, and a hotdog). We loved his hummingbird trick!
