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
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!
We stayed there for one night. Our cabin was ready and very clean. Had a huge place for just the two of us. Felix and his wife were wonderful. Very helpful and served us an excellent breakfast. Haven't had a breakfast that big yet in Costa Rica. And it was included in the rental. Our friend Arianna also stayed there (as a last minute booking) and this is what she has to say:
Son super lindos e me robaron al corazon...
Cabinas la catarata was a wonderful place to stay! Private cabin, bedroom, bathroom, kitchenette... All in a charming cabin set in the beautiful area of la Fortuna. We loved it. Just be sure to get directions to the cabins before arriving.
Jonathan is a great host, but not just for the cabin setup. He is encouraging the commerce of the locals. This may sound like a sales pitch at first, but it is a necessary approach to compete with the larger operations. We booked a zip line tour with one of the big companies and missed our reservation (no payment up front), so we booked with Jonathan for half the price and better experience for sure. We proceeded to book several other hikes and adventures with him and he took care of the rest. Very professional, reliable, easy, local, and I highly recommend booking with him and staying at this place. Life will be easy so you can focus on the experiences and adventures.
The cabins were as described and charming. The beds were comfortable and the WIFI worked great. The breakfast was good and it was nice to eat at Felix's house. Enough close to the city (we had a car). We never met Jonathan during our trip. I recommend those cabins !
