Visit the Quaint Town of La Fortuna in Arenal, Costa Rica

Small towns of Costa Rica are the true pulse and essence of this small country and where you can get the feel of daily life.

La Fortuna, which is the main town of Arenal Volcano area, is simply one of the cutest I’ve seen in Costa Rica and having a gorgeous backdrop of the volcano surely helps!

The way it works here is that the best hotels lie on the way from La Fortuna to Arenal Lake. The hotels along the road have amazing views and are gorgeous. The hotels in La Fortuna are more budget oriented and chances are with louder rooms and not great views.

What I recommend when visiting La Fortuna and Arenal Area of Costa Rica:

When you are planning your trip to this part of the country stay in the hotels along the road. You will absolutely love this choice.
