La Fortuna is a spirited little village nestled in the Costa Rican rainforest. Despite its relatively small size, La Fortuna has become of the most sought-after destinations in the country. It’s surrounded by lush rainforests, jungle waterfalls, and of course, its world famous centerpiece, Mount Arenal, Costa Rica’s most active volcano. Whether you’re just a lover of nature or up for some real adventure trekking through the jungle, La Fortuna is where you’ll find your fortune.

Stay up to date with our current offerings by checking our website and Facebook page, or ask at reception, where our friendly staff are happy to help until 11pm (but feel free to email with any off-hours questions).

We also offer parking and for those travelling with their furry friends, we welcome pets.
There’s so much to do in La Fortuna. The town itself offers a nice variety of shops, bars, coffee shops and restaurants, so make time to explore the streets on foot. As far as the tours go, where do you begin? How about with Selina Explore, our on-site tour operators who will sort out all the options and bookings for you. There’s the usual jungle fun, like hiking and trekking through the trails near Mount Arenal as well as zip lining through the rainforest canopy. In and around Volcano National Park, there’s also rafting, thermal springs, and—because it’s Costa Rica—plenty of waterfalls to see.
