“Great Friendly City to Visit”
Review of La Fortuna

We were a group of two couples and wanted to visit the Volcano, which we did and stayed at a local hostil that was clean, affordable, and the owner was exceptional. The city has a little bit of everything and it was a nice break in traveling from Coast to Coast.

This little town is a nice place to visit. There are a lot of tourist shops. The bus station is there so if you need to go anywhere that is were you would catch the bus. A lot of the tour operators pick up from this central location so I think that is what made this such a popular spot. The meat on a stick stand on the corner is excellent and inexpensive. Next that is a stand that makes shredded mango into desserts or salad. I kept going back to try different ingredients on the mango, my favorite was coconut cream and sweetened condensed milk. It's a great place to sit in the park and people watch, if you have the time.

Lots of stairs down, but when you reach the waterfall it is incredible!

We stayed (8 of us college students) at The Arenal Backpackers Hostel. It was incredible. Rooms and bathrooms were clean. computer lab, restaurant and bar on sight. Pool was clean and there was a clear view of the volcano from our hostel. Staff spoke great English and it was just a great experience over all. We were about a two minute walk from banks, shops, grocery stores, restaurants and tour guides! Also, this hostel and town in general is VERY family friendly. Not just for us traveling college kids!
