La Fortuna: Tour to the La Fortuna Waterfalls

Tours Activities Reseller exclusions Nature & adventure Family-friendly activities Outdoor sports

One of the most impressive and accessible waterfalls in Costa Rica, La Fortuna is a great place to picnic, swim and photograph the waterfall's perpetual mists and nearby exotic vegetation.


  • Visit one of Costa Rica's highest and most popular waterfalls
  • Located inside Arenal Volcano National Park
  • Hike down to the base of the falls to swim in the river


There are many natural attractions to visit during your stay in Costa Rica, however, there is only one Fortuna Waterfall. It is one of the must-sees of the Arenal Volcano National Park, since it combines a visit to this wonder of nature, refreshing pools of crystal-clear water for swimming and is highly recommended for the whole family. Although you have to go down 500 steps, taking a private tour with us ensures a smooth experience because our knowledgeable guides go at your own pace to make sure you enjoy wildlife viewing and capture professional images of the beautiful landscapes only seen here. Once at the base of the waterfall, its impressive drop of 70 meters makes you feel a mixture of calm and relaxation sensations as if nothing else mattered. Along the left side of the waterfall, the river creates natural pools of the cleanest water, coming from the mountains that surround the Cerro Chato hill, with different depths where you can swim calmly for a while. Then, we will start the stairs to the top of the park where you can take a shower with all the comforts you need and change your clothes before returning to the hotels in La Fortuna. When you visit projects like this, you are supporting works of social good in the community since the economic income is invested in helping families in need, studies of children in poverty and other benefits for the development of rural communities.
