La Fortuna Waterfall

The Fortuna River Waterfall is located in the Arenal Volcano Park area where there is a large amount of precipitation annually of more than 4000ml and temperatures between 18 and 35 degrees Celsius which generates an abundant amount of vegetation and diverse wildlife.

This waterfall is located less than 5km from the town of La Fortuna or 25 minutes from Arenal Springs Hotel.
One interesting anecdote is that the Fortuna River Waterfall private reserve is property of the association of development which was donated by the IDA in the early 80’s.  Due to its topography no one wanted to conserve it.  Because of this they decided to donate it to the association of development.  The same people observed the number of visitors and decided to form the park charging $10 per person that goes to community projects.  The fall of the Fortuna Waterfall is 70 meters and has two natural pools with impressive beautiful scenery.  There is easy access from the park area to here where the descent of 600 meters starts with very steep stairs to the base of the waterfall.

Note: People with heart problems or disabled should take this into consideration.  There are also organized rides to the waterfall.  Times can be agreed upon.
