La Fortuna Waterfall

La Fortuna Waterfall

The La Fortuna waterfall is one of the most popular attractions after the Arenal Volcano and the Arenal Lake.

The waterfall is accessible vis a vis a 5.5 km gravel road initiating at in the small town of La Fortuna. If you decide to walk, the trek will take you about an hour to an hour and fifteen minutes depending on your pace. The road traverses a rustic agricultural countryside with lush vegetation and an abundance of wildlife. The waterfall is also accessible by car or even horseback. An observation point exists near the waterfall which will allow you an outstanding view of the more that 40 meter long waterfall. Bird watchers will be pleasantly surprised as well, since many different types of birds including parakeets, toucans and more are often spotted from the observation point. We recommend you be in acceptable physical condition as the trail leading down the base of the falls can be quite steep. And when you reach the base of the falls you will be rewarded by the opportunity to take a relaxing and rejuvenating dip in the natural pool that resides therein.

COST: No entrance fee
