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 loved the place and we can really recommend to stay there. The cabins are lovley and the stuff is super nice and very helpful.
The activities we got recommened by Johnny were so much fun and an extraordinary nature experince.
Thanks again and pura vida
The cabins were great. The breakfast everyday was wonderful. We would stay again for sure.
Our one-night stay was unique and satisfying. Team at Cabinas was very helpful and Jonathan provided excellent recommendations for our activities. He personally attended to our concerns with other operator. He also provided helpful directions to the next destination.
Les cabinas de La Catarata sont vraiment rudimentaires et simples, pour le prix de 50 dollars la notre était vraiment peu agréable et limite sale, le frigo ne fonctionnait pas... et aucune place pour s'installer dehors, heureusement moyennant un supplément nous avons pu en avoir une autre plus agréable. En fait Jonathan fait l'intermédiaire pour louer des appartements qui ne lui appartiennent pas et pour promouvoir son entreprise.
Thanks for the review Madeleine, 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 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; your experiences effect us directly.
Jonathan Turcotte, AirBnB host for Cabinas La Catarata and Owner Operator, Paradise Adventures Costa Rica.
Fantastic experience! Great breakfasts worth staying for provided by Felix and family. Beautiful garden, amazing views of arenal and right down the road from rio fortuna waterfall and cerro chato. Bed was comfortable, furniture very well made, and just gourgeous views. No matter what your plan in la fortuna, youre either walking distance, or jonathan can arrange a great experience!
Great experience throughout our trip to La Fortuna thanks in large part to Jonathan and his Company - PACR. He was responsive to questions that we had within minutes and felt like our own direct and personal Travel Guide to Costa Rica. We booked an AirBnB through him, a zip lining tour, white water rafting, and our shuttle to Tamarindo. All of this was without any hassle thanks to Jonathan. Continue to keep up the amazing work and service that you provide! Thank you! Pura Vida!

Thanks for the praise Colin and Jenna, appreciated!
Its nice to help people during there stay, with so much available in La Fortuna it can become a little overwhelming and PACR respects the opportunity to personalize your vacation experience to one of your choosing. Jonathan Turcotte
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!
