Part of the Northern Highlands, La Fortuna is one of Costa Rica’s most prominent destinations. And yet, despite its popularity, it has maintained a charming and quaint small-town vibe, that immerses you in local culture and flavor. The main draw of the area: the Arenal Volcano and Lake Arenal.
The volcano provides some of the best hiking trails around, while the lake, the largest in the country, lets you swim, kayak, fish and sail all set against the backdrop of one of the nation’s most majestic landscapes.
