The grandiose, La Fortuna waterfall is approximately 75 meters high (200 ft) and plunges into an emerald green watering hole. Located only 6 km from the town of La Fortuna at the base of the Arenal volcano, our bilingual naturalist guides will lead you through the dense Costa Rica tropical rain-forest pointing out monkeys, sloths, and a variety of other wildlife in their natural habitat.
To get to this magical waterfall, you need to hike 20 minutes through a rather steep incline, but the challenge is worth the effort and the photos of the La Fortuna waterfall are sure to impress your friends back home. Be sure to pack your swim gear on this hike as there is nothing more refreshing than swimming in the natural pools of a waterfall!
While hiking to the La Fortuna waterfall, you’ll also be giving back to the environment as the proceeds of the park fee help the non-profit organization maintain the area.
