Next we are going to describe a bit of the transition of the Arenal fortuna with all the attractions, tourist places, adventure and more, an important moment where the expectation is not more important, when it comes to being able to observe and have contact with the people makes us feel at home, a pleasant place with a wonderful harmony with each visitor that gives us the opportunity to spend a memorable time with each of them, friends, family and guests. The idea is to enjoy a walk to see a bit of what today is Arenal La Fortuna, from San Calos, a canton with great history, where it is pleased to be the only canton of 82 that we have in Costa Rica to have the only woman to be the first to exercise the right to vote in Costa Rica in 1949, setting a historical precedent throughout Costa Rica. We are going to visit people who are still alive who can tell us about their own experience that they lived in the eruption of the Arenal Volcano at that time. July 29, 1968 7:30 am of that day, the first families that arrived in unknown lands was a family with Guaquin last name and after them came more families like today known as manolos and later the hidalgos, with the arrival to lands rich in nutrients, iron magnesium, potassium and a pH in the soils, consequences of the arenal volcano, made the town a unique opportunity in the agriculture of the area, pineapple, papaya, potatoes, cassava, sweet potato, and much more, the families were able to get ahead, later the cattle ranch for meat and dairy cattle also arrived, later it was discovered that the arenal volcano is an attractive center of the area and from there there is a development in the tourism industry, hotels, hot springs, tours etc. See the growth of the town and understand the true history where the true guest is the Arenal Volcano, the majestic and powerful Arenal Volcano. We walk in a town with 3 streets with a population of 22,000, inhabitants who live from the tourism industry and agriculture that combine a unique wealth thanks to the Arenal volcano. we are surrounded by people who work selling fruits, ice creams and much more to experience. In the experience we can observe different restaurants and local souvenirs of native artisans from the town of Arenal Fortuna. A unique experience to understand the true history of the town of La Fortuna, see how it has grown since 1968, the year that the Arenal volcano exploded and has had a great impact. We invite you to enjoy a close experience with the town and photograph its best moments during the tour, and end up choosing a good option for dinner or lunch with family or friends. We usually end up as a complement observing the same and sometimes two-toed sloth and three-toed sloth, toucans and parrots, which would be like something extra from the nature that surrounds the town. We hope to have the pleasure of showing you how beautiful fortune is and how beautiful our people are. thanks amigos
