One of the most well-known areas of Costa Rica is the Arenal/La Fortuna area and for good reason! Arenal has a stunning volcano and amazing natural hot springs. In addition, La Fortuna, just 20 minutes down the road, is a cute town with great restaurants and nearby adventure! Click below for a guide to the Arenal/La Fortuna area!
While you are in La Fortuna, do yourself a favor and take an adventure! One of our favorite activities of the whole trip was white water rafting in La Fortuna. It was SUCH a fun time! Maybe more importantly, it was also safe and well-organized. We rafted with Arenal Rating Company, and I can confidently say I would recommend it to everyone.
