Hotels in Arenal

La Fortuna, a charming and quiet town, offers panoramic views of the spectacular Arenal Volcano; Costa’s Rica’s most active volcano. Sitting around 10 kilometers away from town and regularly spewing smoke and ash for some time now, the Arenal is the country’s top rated tourist attraction and is indeed a sight to behold. On a clear day you can watch the volcano erupt and if you wait for nightfall, the Arenal puts on a brilliant show with bright red rocks tumbling down its sides.

Beside the volcano, this town has other great tourist attractions like the Fortuna Waterfall, Tabacon Hot Springs, white water rafting, hiking excursions, kayaking, canoeing, fishing, horseback riding and canopy tours are just some of the many activities that one can enjoy while in the area.

The majestic Lake Arenal is Costa Rica’s largest lake. Surrounded by rolling hills of pastured and forested land, the imposing cone of Volcán Arenal dominates its eastern vista. Following the 1968 eruption, Lake Arenal was enlarged to 3 times its original size, an area of 85.5 km (33 sq. miles). Now its basin forms a hydroelectric project that produces 9% of Costa Rica's electricity.

The lake offers many year-round activities: windsurfing, fishing, boat tours, and kayaking. For those traveling to the Monteverde Cloud Forest, taxi boats provide a quick and scenic shortcut across the lake. The surrounding area offers land tours by horseback, mountain biking, and hiking. Perhaps the lake’s biggest claim to fame is Rainbow Bass sport fishing. The best times for fishing are around sunrise or sunset, and organized fishing trips begin with a hotel pickup at 5:30 am or 2:00 pm. Lake Arenal also enjoys a world-class reputation amongst windsurfers and sailboarders. In addition to the lake’s spectacular scenery, its unique combination of fresh warm water and strong steady wind provides excellent windsurfing conditions.
