Arenal, La Fortuna


Arenal is the name of Costa Rica’s most famous volcano and also refers to the general area around the national park in which the volcano is located. La Fortuna is the nearest town which is about 6km from the border of the national park. The best hotels are spread out along the road towards the national park. It is an area of forests, rivers and waterfalls with the imposing volcano as a dramatic backdrop. The vast Arenal lake is man made and used to create most of the hydro-electric power for the country. A great area for adventure activities and natural hot springs.
