A ride to the beautiful waterfall of La Fortuna is probably the most comfortable way to enjoy the picturesque landscape of the Arenal Volcano. Our experienced guide will show you the way to the entrance of the waterfall where you have the opportunity to swim in the refreshing waters surrounded by lush green jungle.
A Magical Place: La Fortuna Waterfall
La Fortuna Waterfall is a natural attraction located in the North Zone, just 20 minutes from the center of La Fortuna de San Carlos. The trip begins, depending on your experience, with a brief introduction about the horse ride by a member of the Varela family of the Zeta Trece community. Afterwards, you are ready to go and enjoy the 50 minute trip to the waterfall on horseback. While the horses have to stay at the entrance, you descend into the magical nature of this place, crossing bridges until you reach the waterfall. During the short walk of 25 minutes, you can hear the sounds of the jungle and with a bit of luck, toucans, monkeys and other animals. In the area of the waterfall you can take a bath in your refreshing water and have a rest in the nature reserve, enjoying the beautiful waterfall, reaching up to a height of 70 meters. Later, we will make a return trip and take a horse ride to the Varela family farm.
