  • Peter fue muy amable y nos ayadaba conocer el pueblo de La Fortuna y la area de Arenal. LLegabamos muy tarde pero no fue una problema. Recomendado para todos!

    Peter was a great host and really helped us get to know the town of La Fortuna and the Arenal volcano area. We arrived very late our first night and Peter accommodated us graciously. Highly recommend!

  • The Sleeping Indian is a really unique and great place for stay in La Fortuna. The location, arrangements, cleanness, and flexibility from Peter were all wonderful. We enjoyed especially the ambiance of the common area and the balconies where we relaxed at the end of every tiresome day of excursions. Peter is a super friendly guy and is very knowledgeable in the area's offerings and can help you build an itinerary around many exciting offerings of the Arenal region. Rocky the Racoon (don't worry it's a cute friendly dog) was a treat. Highly recommended, we would love to stay there again.

  • We had a great time with Peter and Rocky. The house was comfortable and inviting and a great place to start our Cost Rican adventure. Peter was a great host in recommending restaurants as well as activities to do, even mentioning a great swimming hole nearby that's frequented by locals. We would easily stay at Sleeping Indian again.

  • Basic place nothing fancy but clean and maintained. Peter and Heidi were helpful and had great suggestions. Great location.!

  • Very cute place, cozy feeling, but unfortunately sooo noisy as it's right by the main road... So if you are after a quiet spot and want to sleep, this isn't your place. Another downside was the lack of mosquito protection (no nets or screens). Very friendly staff!

The Sleeping Indian Guesthouse
About
Peter Ferguson the owner of the The Sleeping Indian Guesthouse and welcomes international travelers from all over the world.. Peter is a world traveler who has explored many varied countries and environments and has chosen La Fortuna as his favorite place on the planet and is enthusiastic about sharing his knowledge of this special area of a special country. The Sleeping Indian Guesthouse is centrally located in downtown La Fortuna named after a little chain of mountains next to Volcano Arenal in La Fortuna, Costa Rica. The wind and rain of millions of years of evolution has formed a chain of mountains that looks just like a sleeping indian. The more you look- the more you are amazed, since it seems that these giant mountains actually are a big fat Indian lying down. We think that no matter what kind of traveler you are, everybody likes to feel at home. Making you feel at home is Peter's goal. He loves people and he loves hosting.
