The up-and-coming area surrounding the town of La Fortuna is the perfect spot for any Costa Rica tour. Full of outdoor activities that travelers of any skill level can enjoy, the town's recent growth gives visitors a range of classy lodging and dining options to boot.
La Fortuna is largely known for its spectacular waterfall. Surrounded by lush Costa Rican vegetation, the waterfall features an elegant stream of 230 feet falling into the deep pool below. The waterfall's pool has become an increasingly popular spot for visitors to cool off during the day; however, guests who want to visit the natural wonder will want to give themselves plenty of time to experience it. The trail leading to the fall is quite rugged, so guests are encouraged to watch their footing and keep a slow, steady pace during their hike.
Visitors who want a drier place to cool off can head underground to the nearby Venado Caverns. Stalactites in the caverns range drastically in size and shape, with their particular limestone formation looking eerily similar to a giant's skeletal backbone.
After a long day of outings, travelers will have their pick among many choices for eats and accommodations. Travelers wanting a bit more landscape to their accommodations have their choice of many cabana-style hotels and motels, where guests can rent individual cabins. Although most of these lodging options are a littler further from town, few can argue that their riverside location isn't worth a short walk.
Luigi's Lodge and Pizzeria is another convenient option for travelers. A large hotel found in town and close to other amenities, Luigi's connected pizzeria is a favorite of locals and visitors alike. Even lodge guests, however, should try to get a table early, as this popular stop is more often than not quite full of hungry diners.
