What people are saying about La Fortuna

Beautiful, breathtaking and smooth ride

We took the boat ride from La Fortuna to Monteverdi. It is a 45 minute ride and it is the best way to see Arenal Volcano and rain forest. The ride in the boat is smooth, quiet and very soothing. You can feel and hear the water splash on your arms while watching the beautiful scenery around you. It was just great.

We were picked up punctually at the next hotel on our Airbnb and dropped off in the center of Santa Elena, not far from the taxi rank. We used this tour because the travel time by bus / car was too long for us and would do it again. Unfortunately it rained heavily so that we couldn't enjoy the view at all.

Great way to experience Lake Arenal when on your way to Monteverde! Why take a boring old bus when you can cruise this beautiful lake!

Everything went well! The 3 drivers (taxis and boat) were on their business; very nice! I had a great time. Thanks!

Very well organised and efficient.

From Arenal Lake to Monteverde the roads are very 'uneven' but not the driver's fault. The views were stunning.
