THINGS TO DO IN LA FORTUNA

By: Maichal

 

There many things to do in the epicenter of adventure known as La Fortuna, or as the tourists call it “Arenal.” For local activities, you can start by hiring a guide to teach you amazing things about the area and its wildlife and nature. If you feel like going on your own and taking a walk around town, you can go shopping, try the local restaurants, etc.  If you are talking about hot springs and relaxing, there are some luxury romantic resort springs. But if, like me, you don´t want to spend much money that day, you can just drive and then walk down to the river where you can go for free, which is what I did and I had an amazing time. Small lanterns turn on and the moon makes it clear enough to enjoy it after 6pm, which gives you just enough time to find your way to a nice spot before dark. The place is filled with a combination of a lot of locals and tourists. Just an amazing experience!

 

Before that, I forgot to mention that I visited Arenal Volcano National Park. There you will learn about history and biodiversity and you will be guided along trails. It’s not great for wildlife watching, but it’s amazing for learning about the history of the volcano and seeing amazing views at the end of the hike.

 

If you find yourself in a more adventurous mood and are looking for a challenge, feel free to book the best adventure: walking through the heart of the rainforest while canyoneering, or paddling for your life while white water rafting in the most beautiful surroundings!

 

This is actually the beginning of the adventure in Costa Rica; there is much more to come if you join us! Just try it! This is what we do and how we live in the happiest country in the world: Costa Rica. Also don’t forget that we are the second most adventurous country in the world, right behind New Zealand.

 

The Caribbean is waiting for us with the best surfing, beautiful sun rises, and many gastronomic wonders. The north pacific has amazing adventure and nature tours such as dolphin sightseeing and snorkeling. Let’s go to the south pacific, where we’ll find secluded beaches with the best sunsets in Costa Rica and, trust me, a lot more!
