La Fortuna Waterfall, La Fortuna de San Carlos
Trip Planner: Central America / Costa Rica / Province of Alajuela / Arenal Volcano National Park / La Fortuna de San Carlos / La Fortuna Waterfall
A short drive from town, La Fortuna Waterfall offers an idyllic place for swimming, picnicking, and relaxing. Fed by the Arenal River, which winds its way through the rainforest before plunging dramatically over a steep cliff, this waterfall forms a large pool at the base of a dormant volcano. Lifeguards remain on duty throughout the day, while modern facilities like restrooms and showers ensure a comfortable visit in a lush area noted for thick vegetation and abundant wildlife. Prepare for a short but arduous hike to the base of the waterfall by wearing shoes suitable for slippery and uneven terrain.

We both have Problems with our Knees, but still, partly backwards, we made it down. Great Sight! For the Price, however, at least small Squay Mice could be below ... The "Ascent" was very exhausting. But on each Floor there is the Possibility to rest and sometimes also drink Water. So It's doable to take your Time. Above are by The way showers and TOILET, In addition a Eatery that I can only recommend. Here we ate the best Carbonara in our whole Holiday.
Absolutely beautiful - definitely worth visiting. $18 per person. There is a nice cafe with decent food and drinks a platform where you can see the waterfall. Then you can make your way down to the water which is quite a few steps so I definitely recommend good grip shoes or trainers. You can also swim in the water by the waterfall however the stones can be quite slippery so take care. 10/10
Magical & refreshing! Beautiful waterfall with a lovely view on top & trail to reach down. The natural pool on the left is very refreshing but lovely on a warm day. Must see!
