The Sleeping Indian Guesthouse is in a perfect location, right in the heart of La Fortuna and steps from restaurants and close to tourist attractions. The place itself has a very cool, homey feel and was a good value for the cost. Heidy was very helpful and responsive anytime we had a question about getting to La Fortuna as well as about the different activities to do in the area. My husband and I would definitely recommend this place and would stay there again if/when we return!

A great place to be based in La Fortuna, right in the centre of the small town, but not too noisy. We enjoyed sitting on the balcony at the end of the day and watching life in the little square. Heidi gave us a really warm greeting and was so helpful in answering our questions and arranging our transport. The guesthouse has really unique with fun decorations, and great artwork on the walls!

Fantastic hosts, very eclectic decor, and wonderful views. The shared space easily fosters conversation and interaction if you desire. The views of Arenal are incredible, and the location is perfect in La Fortuna. You're right in the middle of town, and it's easy to get to/from. I had a great time here, the Sleeping Indian receives my highest recommendation.

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 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.
