Your destination guide for La Fortuna, Costa Rica and Volcano Lodge, Hotel & Thermal Experience

The Area

Situated at the base of Arenal Volcano, La Fortuna, Costa Rica; Volcano Lodge, Hotel & Thermal Experience is a garden oasis of tranquility, just removed enough from the hustle and bustle of the small city of La Fortuna to feel secluded and remote, yet close enough to enjoy all the fun and activity that the area has to offer.

La Fortuna is a small Costa Rica town, northwest of the capital, San José, with a population of just under 20,000 people. A popular gateway to Arenal Volcano National Park, comprising 2 volcanoes (Arenal and Chato), the area attracts a lot of visitors a year, and offers plenty in the way of adventure, discovery, rest, relaxation, and fun.

The active Arenal Volcano is still laced with lava flows, which were once visible to area visitors, but no longer are, as the volcano is currently at a resting stage and activity is rare. Hot springs flow from forest near to the volcano, through aquifers. These make up the source of the thermal hot springs that have graced the property of the Volcano Lodge

Dormant Chato Volcano has a crater lake and rainforest trails leading to La Fortuna Waterfall, with its natural pool.
