Ever since the previously dormant Arenal Volcano erupted violently in 1968, La Fortuna has experienced a boom in tourism. For many years following the eruption, the volcano continued to spew lava, and visitors travelled from far and wide to visit La Fortuna and witness the spectacular fire show. The volcano has since calmed but the area has remained popular and many still tour to La Fortuna to see the conical volcano as well as to take advantage of the wealth of other attractions the area has to offer.

La Fortuna Tour Reviews

5 - Excellent
Based on 98 customer reviews
Outstanding and Highly Recommended
5 - Excellent
“Exceeded our expectations, well-structured and narrated. Alberto was an enthusiastic guide and pointed out a lot of wildlife that our untrained eyes would have missed. The top-notch company never made us feel rushed and was very patient with questions. Would not hesitate to book with them again! We really enjoyed this week in Costa Rica with Greenway Tours.”

“An excellent introduction to the wildlife around Costa Rica. The focus was on birds but there were plenty of flowers, mammals and invertebrates to add interest. A little more strenuous than suggested by the rating but the guide did give the option not to go on some of the walks. The country is safe and reasonably clean (water in hotels was all potable) and the accommodation was of a good standard throughout.”

“An absolutely tip top trip. Our guide, Pedro Bolanos, was amazing. The trip takes in so many aspects of this very interesting country. The travel can be quite long, but still very interesting as we passed by so many amazing places. Two days in each place is about right - but then again, we could have stayed longer in virtually every one, needing a three week trip! The lodge at Esquinas is a real experience, just lovely.”

La Fortuna - Tour Highlights and Travel Tips

Tour Highlights

La Fortuna boasts of many things to do. From outdoor activities like hiking near a volcano to soaking in a thermal pool. Once you've reached La Fortuna, you will be spoiled for choice: 

  • One of the most visited sites on a Costa Rica tour, Arenal volcano, is the main reason why tourism has exploded in La Fortuna in recent decades.
  • The area boasts many rewarding hiking trails in the dry tropical forests around the volcano, offering the chance to catch sight of local wildlife.
  • The volcano heats geothermal springs in the area, which can be enjoyed in dedicated resorts or just ‘wild’, out in the forest.
  • The La Fortuna waterfall is one of the area’s must-see attractions and offers visitors the chance to take a refreshing dip in the pool at the bottom.
  • Take a trip to Lake Arenal to enjoy the many water-based activities on offer there.
  • Hike to the crater of the area’s ‘other’ volcano, Chato. This one is not active, and the challenging slog to the top is rewarded by an attractive crater lake.

Travel Tips

  • Tours are offered to most of the attractions in the area but many of the activities such as hiking are easy to do independently. This can be a good way to save some money (although you still need to pay the entry fee of USD 15 for the Arenal Volcano National Park).
  • There are many ways to reach La Fortuna from San Jose, the capital of Costa Rica. Car rentals, shuttles and flights are easily available. 
  • Mid-April to November is the rainy season and is best avoided.
  • ATMs are widely available in La Fortuna town
