La Fortuna Night Walk: See the Critters of the Night

December 3, 2020 By Sammi 6 Comments

When the sun goes down, the jungles of Costa Rica awakens with the creatures of the night beginning their day. Many tropical animals are nocturnal and one of the best ways to experience the Costa Rican rainforest to its fullest is to take a night walk.

A guided night walk in Costa Rica will allow you to observe these night time creatures as they go about their day in the dark. We did a night walk in La Fortuna where we saw a handful of these animals. You can read more about it below!

La Fortuna Night Walk

We did the night walk with a tour operator who has their own private forest reserve outside of town. The property has very nice trails, gardens, ponds and a small outdoor eating area as they offer snacks and refreshments after the walk.

Interested in doing this night walk? Book it with our tour discount here!

The tour also included roundtrip transportation, flashlights and a bilingual guide.

As soon as we arrived at the property, our guide, Jairo, gave us our flashlights and explained to us what the night walk will be like. He warned us not to touch anything and to always follow him because there are creatures like snakes and spiders out there in the forest we don’t want to inadvertently run our hands over or step on!

As soon as his talk was over, we set off into the forest. I was so excited! I would never explore the jungle on my own in the dark and I couldn’t wait to see what we would find!

La Fortuna/Arenal Night Walk Animals

As La Fortuna is in the Northern Lowlands full of primary and secondary rainforest, the animals we could see were mostly snakes, frogs, insects and arachnids. I was especially looking forward to seeing frogs which I love.

We’ve had Jairo as a guide for many other tours before such as the Mistico Hanging Bridges , Arenal Volcano 1968 and the La Fortuna waterfall and he is hands down one of the best guides we know. Although he was disappointed that we didn’t see any snakes, we were plenty happy with the animals we did see that night which were many frogs, insects and a really cool reptile called Helmeted Basilisk.

We had never seen one of those before so it was very cool to see as it was perching on a branch right above our heads!

Here are some photos of the animals we saw. I didn’t take too many but we got a lot of video footage so I recommend to watch the video below 🙂

Here is our short video.

We’ve done several nights walks in Costa Rica and the night walk in La Fortuna is a great one. Jairo is an excellent guide and we loved that he not only wanted to show us the animals, but he shared with us information about each one and their role in the ecosystem as he likes to emphasis on conservation and the importance of preservation of the rainforest.

Although our entire group adults, a night walk in La Fortuna would be an excellent activity for families in Costa Rica , especially with kids who love animals. This is a wonderful opportunity for the kids to learn more about nature, animals and rainforests and why protecting nature is so important. Plus they’ll get to see neat creatures like spiders, grasshoppers, walking sticks and other critters up close!

La Fortuna Night Walk Cost and Details

The cost of this La Fortuna night walk is $61 USD per adult and $52 USD per children up to 12 years of age. It includes roundtrip transportation, bilingual guide, flashlights and juice, coffee and snacks.

You will get picked up around 430 PM and return around 8 PM. The walk is a couple of hours long total but is an easy walk on a flat path. Closed toed shoes only, long pants and shirt recommended because there are a lot of mosquitoes.

Sample Itineraries Including the Arenal Night Walk

Since the night walk starts around 430 PM, you can definitely do other activities during the day.

  • For a full day of nature, wildlife and hiking, you can visit Mistico Hanging Bridges in the morning, have lunch afterwards, do a sloth and bird watching tour after lunch and then do the night walk.
  • Nature and wildlife: Safari float in the morning, lunch, rest and then night walk.
  • For a combination of adventure and wildlife, you can go ziplining or canyoning in the morning, have lunch, rest at your hotel and then go on the night walk.

Trying to decide which night walk is best. La Fortuna or Monteverde? What do you see differently at each one? We really want to see snakes and frogs.

I’d go with La Fortuna

Alisa harris says

January 1, 2023

If we want to see more mammals, would you recommend Monteverde for the night hike? Also, is that something that we can book through you for the discount happy new year! Alisa

January 7, 2023

Unfortunately we don’t have any discounts or partners in Monteverde but there are a lot of night walks there. You don’t see many mammals on night walks, the only one I saw was a sleeping sloth.

February 5, 2022

Would you recommend La Fortuna or Monteverde for a night tour?

Thank you! Khema

February 6, 2022

If you like more reptiles or amphibians, La Fortuna for me is better since it’s tropical rainforest, Monteverde is cloud forest

This tour was one of the highlights of any vacation I’ve been on . Sergio and Don Claudio gave us a tour of the property and showed us a variety of rare animals and plants we would have otherwise missed. They were so knowledgeable and truly personalized the tour to our interests. We love that it felt like a genuinely immersive local experience and it was a wonderful intro to La Fortuna. The baby sloths wegot to capture in their natural habitat was an incredible experience. We also got to make our own tortillas with Grandma Elieth which were delicious. We felt so welcome by everyone and were lucky enough to have a private tour. We couldn’t recommend this experience more!

Ronja Ehmann

Forget any other “sloth spotting” tour . This is the real deal. I booked a spot on the 8.30am tour the day before and as I was the only one got a private tour by guide Sergio and the owner himself, don Claudio. Sergio is crazy knowledgable about the flora and fauna (turns out history as well) and don Claudio has eagle eyes for spotting even the best hidden animal. Saw 5 sloths in total, including ababy. The tour concluded with some freshly pressed cane juice, making my own tortilla with the owner’s lovely wife Eliette, and being served the cooked tortilla together with a full meal and fresh lemonade. Enjoyed my feast while watching the different birds enjoy ripe bananas. The property is so well taken cared of and cherished by the owners, who are the most humble and friendly people you’ll meet. It is and feels like a family business, super warm and welcoming. I cannot recommend this tour enough. Oh, and if that wasn’t enough, the whole 2,5-3h experience only costs US$32.

Rachel Van der Werf

What a wonderful experience! Our concierge recommended this family run business due to the natural environment the animals are kept in. Our guide Andre and his granddad (aka Eagle Eye because he can spot so many animals) were terrific tour guides. So much knowledge about the flora and fauna, we could not have asked for a better tour. We saw different sloths, very colorful andpoisonous frogs, birds and so on. Our tour ended with a very tasty local lunch with tortillas we made ourselves. Highly recommended!

This was definitely a highlight in our trip . We came here because of the rain and were so happy to land here. We saw sloths, frogs, birds, basilisks and a bat. Don Carlos knew all the right places to look at and our guide was knowledgeable and patient to answer all question. He brought a telescope so we could see all animals up closed and all members of the family gave us the most welcoming experience. Highly recommended!

Erin Obermeier

Wonderful tour with a private, not crowded, authentic experience. We loved our tour — we saw lots of sloths and birds, frogs, lizards, flowers, etc. This is a family-run business and everyone was so kind and knowledgeable, took their time, and made sure my daughter could see out of the telescope each time, etc. We loved making our own tortillas and sugar cane juice at the end, and the food wasdelicious. We would definitely recommend you visit Mariolas!

La Fortuna Night Tour at Arenal Oasis

  • Jenn and Matt

If you are traveling to Costa Rica to see wildlife, a night tour should definitely be on your list. We have done night tours in many spots around the country, and they are all different and wonderful in their own way. You never know what you will come across. The rainforest becomes extra active at night, and a guide can show you many species that are not usually noticeable during the day. In this post, we’ll tell you about an exciting night tour in La Fortuna at a small reserve called Arenal Oasis. Beware, we did see some scary stuff, so if you are nervous about a night tour, read with caution!

Arenal Oasis Night Tour

Arenal Oasis is a small wildlife refuge and ecolodge located in La Fortuna. The property sits on the eastern side of the famous Arenal Volcano and is close to town. With varied habitat including rainforest, gardens, and some spring-fed ponds, Arenal Oasis is the perfect spot to see many species living together in one place.

During the day, birding tours are very popular. Over 150 species have been identified on the property, which is a little less than 12 acres (5 hectares).

At night, guided tours bring you through the forest and around the spring-fed ponds. These water sources attract as many as 28 frog species. The frogs, in turn, attract other creatures like snakes, birds, and small mammals.

Because it is rainforest, there is always the chance to see other interesting critters too, especially insects and spiders. 

Hourglass Tree Frog La Fortuna

The Night Tour at Arenal Oasis

The night tour starts around dusk at the Arenal Oasis reception area. Here, you meet up with the guide and get a flashlight to use on the trail. At this point, the sun is just going down so you have an opportunity to get familiar with your surroundings before it gets too dark.

It gets dark around 6:00 p.m. in Costa Rica all year-round, so you don’t have to be out too late to get the full experience. 

When a lot of people are going on the night tour, groups get split up and go with different guides. This helps you be able to hear the guide and gather around him or her while they are explaining things along the way. Our group had about 10 people in it, which was good, but you sometimes couldn’t hear the guide very well if you were near the back.

Our Experience on the Night Tour

When we took the Arenal Oasis night tour, it was us and our two kids, ages five and two. Our five-year old, Sam, was ready and excited, but our 2-year old, Evan, wasn’t so sure. If you do try it with younger kids, we would recommend bringing a baby carrier so you can keep them close by.

Our night tour started off with some rain, which is very common in La Fortuna — it’s what keeps the rainforest lush and green after all.

Luckily it only rained hard for a few minutes and then cleared up to a light sprinkle. Everyone in our group had raincoats and some had umbrellas too.

Guided Night Tour Arenal

The trails at Arenal Oasis are very flat and easy. However, they are narrow at times, and you do brush up against sticks and leaves occasionally.

The trails weren’t too muddy, even with the rain, but closed-toed shoes are a necessity, especially with biting ants and things slithering across the trail (see below!).

What We Saw

As our guide led us through the forest, it wasn’t long before we started seeing some critters.

We first saw a cool giant grasshopper that was about seven inches (18 cm) long. Next, we observed a golden-orb spider weaving her web between some leaves.

Turning around, our guide spotted a larger frog in the tree. He explained that it was a Mexican tree frog and showed us the interesting camouflage pattern on its skin.

Mexican Tree Frog La Fortuna

We continued walking single file along the trail, as heavy water drops fell from the trees. It was completely dark now and we all swished our flashlights back and forth, looking for more.

Constantly we were stopping to observe something new. There were centipedes and millipedes, and different frogs and toads. Early on, we saw more Mexican tree frogs, along with brilliant emerald frogs, a leaf litter toad, and a common rain frog.

We were able to get some nice pictures of the frogs with our phones and cameras.


Along one stretch of the trail, we got walking at a fairly good pace. Our family was toward the back.

Suddenly our son Sam’s flashlight illuminated something slithering under some low leaves that were hanging over the trail. Matt immediately recognized the A-shaped pattern on its skin. He quickly stopped Sam in his tracks and called out to the guide ahead. It was a terciopelo , a fer-de-lance!

The fer-de-lance (Bothrops asper) is known as Costa Rica’s deadliest snake since it causes more fatal bites than any other. This one was also huge at about five feet (1.5 meters) long! To make it even scarier, almost our entire group had walked within a couple of feet of it, without even noticing. 

Our guide quickly jumped into action, making sure everyone kept their distance as the snake slowly slithered off the trail and coiled up next to the base of a tree. The guide then warned the group that was coming down the trail behind us to use caution.

Fer-de-lance Arenal night tour

This close encounter had our whole group on edge. Suddenly everyone was walking very carefully in the middle of the trail and using their flashlights to illuminate the way.

As it turns out, we were getting close to the spring-fed ponds, which attract a lot of frogs. Our guide explained that snakes love to eat frogs and that is why you often find them both in the same area.

In fact, we saw one more smaller fer-de-lance on the side of the trail in some leaves right before the first pond. This one just slithered away as we tiptoed past.

The sound of frogs chirping got louder and louder as we approached the water. Soon our guide stopped and pointed his light on a leaf. It was Costa Rica’s most famous frog, the red-eyed tree frog. These are striking, with a bright green color, orange feet, and red eyes. They are often used in marketing materials in Costa Rica because of their beauty.

red-eyed tree frog La Fortuna

We saw several of these special frogs, all hanging out above the ponds on leaves and branches.

In addition to the red-eyed tree frog, we saw some hourglass tree frogs, a web-footed frog, narrow-headed tree frog, and some giant Central American bullfrogs.

We even saw some eggs that one frog had laid on a leaf. These were strategically placed so that the tadpoles would fall into the water below when they hatched.

Frog eggs

Finishing the Tour

There were several ponds that we passed along the last part of the trail. They all had a chorus of frogs chirping around them, and we got to see many more of the same species we had previously spotted.

Before looping back around and heading for the reception, we got to see another species of snake. This one was small and much less harmful. It was called a cat-eyed snake. They have a very mild venom that usually isn’t too harmful to humans.

Cat-eyed snake La Fortuna

After about two hours in the wet jungle, we were all ready to get back to our cars. Not far from the parking area, we did have one more fun sighting: a sleeping toucan, high up in a tree.

The night tour at Arenal Oasis was definitely an adventure for our family. We did come in close contact with some scary snakes, but it was also really cool to see some of Costa Rica’s most beautiful frogs and insects. When walking the trails, it’s an amazing feeling to experience how alive the jungle becomes at night.

Nocturnal Experience Night walk

This tour is ideal for all those who want to discover the nocturnal wonders of Costa Rica. We will begin with a 30-minute drive to the town of La Tigra, where we will meet the Mendez Family. This Traditional Costa Rican family lives off the land and dedicates part of their property for the natural regeneration of plants and animals.

On the property, we will take a 600-meter trail alongside a small patch of regenerating forest with water mirrors that facilitate the observation of nightlife such as birds and nocturnal mammals,insects, amphibians, bats, and more.

We will walk around the water mirrors until we reach the frog sanctuary, where natural regeneration and reproduction of these species occurs. The sanctuary receives its name due to the large number of frogs that can be observed, like the hammer frog and the bullfrog which are the largest and smallest species in Costa Rica, in addition to the beautiful red-eyed tree frog, and the spectacular little glass frog. After the tour isover, a delicious traditional Costa Rican dinner prepared over a wood-burning stove awaits and it will be accented with the nocturnal lights of the SanCarlos plains. After dinner, we will take the transportation back to La Fortuna.

Basically, La Fortuna is a paradise for those who are outdoor enthusiasts, as some of the best tours in Costa Rica are located right here!

  • Other Activities to do While You're in La Fortuna

Selina La Fortuna – $

Casa luna hotel & spa – $$, the springs resort & spa at arenal – $$$, why we book tours with viator, renting a car, book shuttles, our top picks for tours in la fortuna.

Canyoning in Jaco

If you don’t have time to read the entire blog, we’ve got you covered with our top tours to choose from. Consider them the best of the best!

To see all the highlights La Fortuna has to offer, this full-day tour is one you can’t pass up! You’ll see (and swim at!) the stunning La Fortuna Waterfall before visiting a butterfly garden and hiking to the base of Arenal Volcano. Finishing off the day at some of the famous natural hot springs really is the cherry on top. It’s insanely good value too at $91 USD per person including all fees, lunch, and transportation. It was so good, we would book this exact tour again!

If you’re craving a bit of adventure in La Fortuna, this action-packed tour is for you! The first stop is climbing up a secret canyon before you strap in and tackle a rappelling course including a zipline. The best parts are the four waterfall descents where you actually rappel through the water! The tour is fun for the whole family with ages 5 and up welcome and the $119 USD cost includes hotel transfers and lunch when you book online here .

Seeing sloths in the wild is actually pretty challenging – they really blend in! We opted for this sloth-watching tour to an area near La Fortuna called Sloth’s Territory. Spoiler alert: There are lots of sloths here! But you can spot plenty of other creatures including frogs, hummingbirds, and parrots! The small group tour is capped at 10 people and we learned a ton from our guide. It’s only $35 USD, so book the tour here and cross seeing a sloth in Costa Rica off your bucket list!

We find booking tours in La Fortuna makes exploring the area so much easier. There are some public bus services or shuttles in the area but they’re not always great for sightseeing. That means choosing tours that include transport makes life so much easier and saves time. 

It’s also safer to join a tour than to explore independently. La Fortuna is one of the safest towns in Costa Rica and when we lived here, we felt perfectly safe during the day. However, if you’re a first-time visitor to Costa Rica then it’s a good idea to join a tour so that a local guide can show you around and teach you the ins and outs of navigating the area safely.

Tours in La Fortuna also allow you to explore places you wouldn’t be able to otherwise. You can discover all of the best off-the-beaten-path places and trust us, La Fortuna is home to some amazing ones! Plus, joining activities like whitewater rafting tours and rainforest walks gives you access to hidden spots you wouldn’t be able to get to on your own. 

We also love taking tours in La Fortuna because you learn much more about the area’s culture, landscape, and biodiversity. We were captivated by the lush jungle and vast amount of wildlife . The guides are great at spotting animals and giving unique information about the ecosystem. You don’t get the same insight when you visit on your own, so if you love nature and wildlife as much as we do, you’ll get a lot more out of a tour than an independent visit. 

La Fortuna itself is also a fun city to hang out in. You can explore the cute downtown shops, dine in the many delicious restaurants , and enjoy the fun nightlife scene! There are also tons of great hotels and resorts in La Fortuna , so you’ll feel relaxed and rejuvenated amongst all of your outdoor adventuring!

What are the Best Tours in La Fortuna, Costa Rica?

Visiting the Arenal Volcano is definitely one of the best things to do ( and a great cheap activity in La Fortuna !). In fact, many people come here just to visit one of the must-see volcanoes of Costa Rica ! However, La Fortuna has lots to offer beyond the famous volcano, which is why we think this full-day tour  is so fantastic. 

The first stop of the day is La Fortuna Waterfall , a famously powerful 70-meter (230-foot) tall waterfall that gushes from a cliff into an emerald pool below. It’s absolutely beautiful and you can take a refreshing swim either below the waterfall or further downstream, so bring your swimwear! 

You’ll also visit a butterfly garden near the entrance to the falls, and we also saw lots of toucans when we went!

Of course, the day’s main event is visiting the Arenal Volcano. You get to hike to the base of the volcano and a little way up its face, and you’ll get to see lava from the 1968 eruption up close! It’s illegal to hike to the summit of the Arenal Volcano but don’t worry, you get incredible views from the base. You’ll see the surrounding jungle and lava fields, as well as the beautiful Lake Arenal. 

I do think that visiting the Arenal Volcano with a guide makes a difference. I chose to go as part of a tour rather than visiting independently because I wanted to learn more about the volcano, and I’m so glad I did!

The tour also includes a visit to the Maleku Cultural Resource Center to learn about the Maleku people, who are one of the eight Indigenous groups in Costa Rica.

The final stop of the day is at some natural hot springs, where you can relax in warm, mineral-rich waters as you sip on a complimentary cocktail. There are tons of great hot springs in La Fortuna , stopping at one on this tour is a perfect introduction so hopefully, you can explore more during your vacay!

This tour is a good fit if you don’t have a lot of time in La Fortuna and want to see as much as possible. La Fortuna Waterfall, the Arenal Volcano, and visiting hot springs are all high on our list of the best things to do in La Fortuna , and this tour lets you cover them all in just one day. 

At $91 USD per adult, we also think that this tour is fantastic value for money because it includes hotel pickup and drop off, all admission fees, your guide, lunch, and alcoholic beverages! Plus, it lasts for 11 hours, you really can’t get an inclusive tour for this cheap anywhere else! You can book this incredible day exploring La Fortuna online here .

White water rafting in Costa Rica

Whitewater rafting is SO much fun and La Fortuna is an ideal place to do it. It’s close to some great rafting rivers, including Balsa, which is perfect for first-timers. In fact, Costa Rica has the best whitewater rafting in all of Central America. Whitewater rafting can be a bit nerve-wracking if you haven’t done it before, which is why we recommend  this rafting tour out of La Fortuna . 

It’s a half-day experience that takes you to Class II and III rapids, which are fun and challenging but still great for beginners. The guides are super friendly and give you lots of instruction beforehand, and then you’ll go on a 10-kilometer (6-mile) trip along the river, with a swim stop along the way. 

I also love how you get a different perspective of the beautiful Costa Rican landscape from the river, it is an entirely new experience!

The 5-hour tour costs $68 USD per person and travelers aged 5 and up can participate, so this activity is suitable for families, too. You get snacks along the way and a traditional Costa Rican lunch at the end, and round-trip transport from your hotel is included, too. Be sure to book this experience in advance , as it’s popular for a reason!

If you’re still anxious about rafting, just think “If a 5-year-old can do it, I can do it.” You can go whitewater rafting all over the world but the quality of rafting in La Fortuna is hard to beat, so this is definitely a fantastic place to do it! And if you want to learn even more, just read our guide to whitewater rafting in La Fortuna , which covers all your burning questions.

If your goal is finding amazing white water rafting, the best time to visit Costa Rica is actually during the rainy season, from June to October. The rivers are at their fullest and fast-flowing, which means you’re in for some epic rafting!

at the bridge of Mistico Park with a view of Arenal Volcano in La Fortuna, Costa Rica

This award-winning tour  is the ultimate adventurous day out in La Fortuna! Lace up your hiking boots and prepare for some trekking, because you’ll take three different hikes to three of the best places to visit in Costa Rica.

You start by heading to Arenal Volcano National Park for a 2.5-hour hike to the base of the volcano. We thought the coolest part of the hike was visiting a lava field! Our guide told us all about the major eruption that took place in 1968 and we had some time to take in amazing views of the park. 

We also love that this includes a La Fortuna Waterfall tour for another (shorter) hike and a swim in the pool below its powerful stream. If you’re not a strong swimmer, there are also some pools a little further downriver that have calm water, so you won’t miss out. The water temperature is on the cooler side, but that’s exactly what you need in the warm, humid, Costa Rican climate!

And finally, you head to the Mistico Hanging Bridges for a 3.2-kilometer (2-mile) forest hike that takes you across 14 bridges, six of which are hanging bridges. This is an amazing place to see Costa Rica’s iconic wildlife including tropical birds, sloths, and monkeys, and your guide will help you to spot them. 

This tour is another good option if you don’t have long in La Fortuna and you’re someone who likes to be active. Your step count will be through the roof by the end of the day, plus you’ll get to cross three epic locations off of your Costa Rica itinerary ! It costs $163 USD per person including all of your transport, admission fees, and lunch. You can book this 9-hour tour online here !

Repelling down a waterfall in Costa Rica on a canyoning tou

This is a fantastic adventure tour full of canyoning and waterfalls! Our first stop was heading into the rainforest in a 4×4 and then climbing up a secret canyon. I felt like I was in an action movie! Don’t worry though, unlike in the movies you’ll be harnessed in and your guide will coach you, so it’s totally safe and an exciting experience!

Once you’ve completed the climb, you tackle a rappelling course that includes a monkey drop, which is basically where you descend via a zipline like a monkey. It’s so much fun! 

The course also includes four waterfall descents where you actually rappel through the flowing water, so wear clothes you don’t mind getting wet!

You can do this tour whether or not you have any rappelling experience. It’s great for beginners but the course is so much fun that you can still enjoy it even if it’s your 50th time going rappelling, as each location is a little different.

I’ll say that you do work up quite an appetite during this adventure, so luckily the tour ends at a ranch house where you’ll eat a traditional local lunch. It usually consists of homemade tortillas and salsa, with fresh tropical juice to quench your thirst, or coffee if you need an energy boost after all that activity. 

The tour costs $119 USD per person including transport from your hotel and lunch. This tour is family friendly and kids as young as 5 can participate. If canyoning, rock climbing, rappelling, and waterfall exploring sound like a good day to you, I highly recommend booking this tour !

Traditional coffee brewer in La Fortuna, Costa Rica

Costa Rica is known for many things and top among them are chocolate and coffee! Costa Rica exports about 90% of its coffee and is the 13th largest coffee producer in the world. It’s also known for its high-quality cacao beans, so a coffee and chocolate tour is a must-do activity when you visit Costa Rica !

We love  this specialty coffee and chocolate tour  because it takes you to a family-run farm, so it’s a fantastic way to support local industry. It’s also a super informative and engaging tour, and you get so many samples along the way. I couldn’t believe how much better coffee and chocolate both taste when they’re fresh!

During the tour, we got to see the intense process of cultivating coffee beans and turning them into a product that’s ready to ship. The tour even gets hands-on at various points of the process, so you too have a hand in the coffee and chocolate production!

Even if you’re not a coffee drinker, it’s so cool to learn about how coffee goes from bean to cup, and it’s a great insight into Costa Rica’s agricultural practices. Coffee is a world-wide industry and I found it fascinating to get a glimpse into the process.

The tour costs $43 USD per person, including transport and TONS of tastings of tea, coffee, chocolate, and sugarcane. It lasts for 2.5 hours so it’s not too long and you can choose to go at 8 am, 10 am, 12:30 pm, 2 pm, or 3 pm. You can book this tasty experience online here!

Zipline costa rica

Ziplining is always a blast, but it’s even better when you get to soar through the rainforest canopy and over the stunning La Fortuna Waterfall, which is exactly what  this ziplining tour offers. In fact, it’s the only ziplining tour in La Fortuna that includes this stunning aerial view!

You’ll also get amazing views of the Arenal and Cerro Chato volcanoes and spot lots of wildlife as you fly through the trees. There are 12 different ziplines in total and it’s quite an active tour since you need to hike to the first zipline and between some of the others. 

After you’ve finished the zipline course, you’ll visit the Maleku Cultural Resource Center for a more relaxed activity. Here, you’ll learn about the Indigenous Maleku people and their deep connection to the land and rainforest. The Center exists to preserve the rich Maleku culture and educate visitors about its art, customs, and history. 

The tour costs $92 USD and is scheduled to last for 2.5 hours. It includes round-trip transportation from your hotel, safety equipment, all admission fees, and your guide. It doesn’t include food or drink but there will be some available to buy along the way, so make sure to bring some cash. 

La Fortuna and Monteverde are my two favorite places to go ziplining in Costa Rica , so I definitely think that this experience is worth it! You can reserve this tour in advance here .

Sloth deep in the trees in Costa Rica

La Fortuna is one of the best places in Costa Rica to spot sloths. Seeing a sloth in the wild is actually harder than you think! We love sloths, so obviously we couldn’t pass up the opportunity to see them on  this sloth-watching tour !

The tour takes you to an area just outside of La Fortuna known as Sloth’s Territory where you’ll see lots of two and three-toed sloths, as well as plenty of other wildlife. You’ll explore the reserve on foot but we found it really easy to walk around, and you get to visit the on-site organic farm at the end for some fresh fruit. 

This tour really is a must for wildlife lovers because you get to see so much when you explore Sloth’s Territory. You can spot opossums, red frogs, hummingbirds, parrots, porcupines, and so much more! We loved our experience and we learned SO much from our guide. 

It costs $35 USD per person including snacks and entry to the sloth reserve. You will need to get yourself here, but if you’re renting a car in Costa Rica , it’s only a 10-minute drive. This tour is capped at 10 people, so you get more of a personalized experience and have time to ask lots of questions. It’s under 2 hours long so you can easily do another short tour on the same day, as there are lots of times to choose from. 

If seeing a sloth is on your Costa Rica bucket list, this tour is your golden ticket! Book this tour online here and get excited to see these cute and curious creatures.

A man walks across the Mistico Hanging Bridges

Visiting the Mistico Hanging Bridges is one of the best ways to see wildlife in La Fortuna. They’re located in a large, private park and you can actually see as much wildlife here as you do in places like Manuel Antonio National Park . 

Yep, it’s THAT good!

This 3-hour tour  takes you to Mistico Park to explore via the bridges. There are 14 of them in total, and eight are ground-level while six are hanging bridges. Your guide will lead the way and point out lots of amazing wildlife and teach you more about the local ecosystem. 

One thing we love about the Mistico Park hanging bridges is that you get amazing views of the Arenal Volcano. The birds here are also incredible . You can see rainbow-beak toucans, orange-bellied trogons, and crested guans, among many other types of tropical birds.

We have been to Mistico Park with and without a guide, and we really found it valuable to have one! They have such a deep knowledge of the rainforest and wildlife, so not only did we see more but we also walked away with a better understanding of this beautiful country.

The tour costs $48 USD per person if you drive yourself. The tour also includes entrance fees to the park and your amazing guide! There are multiple departure times to select from, so you can choose one that best fits your schedule. Book this tour online here !

Daniel riding an ATV through the jungle in Costa Rica

ATV tours are always a blast but we think that this one’s even more fun than usual! On this La Fortuna ATV tour , you get to drive around a private farm right next to Arenal Volcano National Park, which is one of Costa Rica’s best national parks if you ask me!

You’ll check out old impact craters, as well as visit Arenal Lake and a volcanic mud river. You can even use the mud on your skin and get a free spa treatment!

Before you head out, you get a quick lesson on how to drive the ATVs and you’ll drive a practice circuit first to make sure you’re good to go. The tour then starts by taking you across open plains so that you’ll feel confident by the time you reach the fun trails. 

Then, you’ll tear around all the trails, exploring the terrain and enjoying great views of the Arenal Volcano in the distance. It’s so much fun, but you should wear clothes you don’t mind getting dirty because you’re definitely going to be muddy by the end! 

Another great thing about this tour is that you can spot lots of wildlife, like monkeys and sloths, along the way as you go through the forest. 

The tour costs $105 USD per person, including hotel pick-up and drop-off, a safety helmet, and bottled water along the way to keep you hydrated. Children 13 years and older are welcome to join and this tour accommodates up to 14 travelers. It lasts for around 2 hours and you can choose to go in the early morning, late morning, or afternoon. 

If you’re looking for an adrenaline-pumping activity while in La Fortuna, you need to book this tour because it is sure to deliver!

The steps down to Rio Celeste Waterfalls

Rio Celeste is easily one of the most beautiful rivers in Costa Rica (and probably the world) because it’s so blue it almost looks fake! You really do have to see it to believe it. 

The river is in Tenorio Volcano National Park , 68 km (42 mi) from La Fortuna. It really is a must-visit when you’re in town and  this Rio Celeste tour  will take you on a full-day exploration.

Your guide will lead you on a 3 km (1.8 mi) trek to Rio Celeste and help you spot wildlife along the way. You’ll visit Rio Celeste Waterfall, which I think is the most scenic waterfall in the entire country – and that’s saying something! 

After the waterfall, you’ll come across a hot part of the river, which is known as Los Borbollones (the Bubbling Hot Pot). Your guide will explain the natural phenomenon behind why this happens, although you might need to cover your nose because the water smells very strongly of rotten eggs – don’t worry, it’s just the sulfur!

The trek ends at Teñideros, which is the point where you see the water change from clear to that shocking shade of blue. Then, you turn back and return to the entrance before heading for lunch at a local restaurant, which is included in the price of the tour. 

This 8-hour tour costs $89 USD, including transport from La Fortuna. You definitely don’t have to be a pro hiker to do the trek but you should be reasonably fit and healthy. Book this experience here to see the stunning Rio Celeste up close!

A huge lizard on a night tour in La Fortuna

Costa Rica is famed for its wildlife and many of the most fascinating creatures can only be seen at night! But of course, you probably don’t want to go wandering into the rainforest by yourself after dark. 

Fortunately, you can join  this rainforest night walk  and spot all of the amazing nocturnal creatures hiding in the trees, including bats, birds, and snakes. Plus, you get to visit a frog sanctuary and see red-eyed tree frogs and glass frogs. Where else will you be able to have this experience!?

Red-eyed tree frogs are one of the most iconic creatures in Costa Rica and glass frogs are amazing to see because of their translucent skin. 

I did this tour and absolutely loved it! I saw so many creatures and our guide was so helpful in pointing out lots of animals I might have otherwise missed. And while Monteverde is well-known for its night tours and incredible nocturnal creatures, we thought our night tour in La Fortuna was just as good.

The guided trek lasts for about 1.5 hours, with the whole tour being about 4 hours. After your trek, you’ll head to a local spot for a traditional Costa Rican dinner prepared on a wood-burning stove. This is a really nice end to the evening and I loved the food!

The tour costs $65 USD per person and includes hotel pickup and drop off, lanterns and flashlights, bottled water, and your dinner. It was such an amazing experience and I think it’s a fantastic way to spend an evening in La Fortuna! You can book this unique night tour online here .

A lady in the Venado Caves in La Fortuna

I think the Venado Caves are a really underrated thing to do in La Fortuna . The caves aren’t a huge tourist attraction and relatively few visitors to La Fortuna get to experience them, so if you want to get off the beaten path this really is the ultimate way to do it.

I had so much fun when I went, and it’s definitely one of the most adventurous activities around!

I did  this 4-hour tour which took us on a subterranean expedition through the caves. You enter through a large cavern and then explore smaller caverns, grottoes, and chambers. In fact, some of the holes between the caves are a very tight squeeze, but you can skip some of these if you’re not comfortable. 

You also see some very interesting (and to be honest, slightly spooky) creatures along the way, like bats and big spiders.

This experience definitely isn’t for the faint of heart but you’re accompanied by an expert guide who will encourage you and make you feel safe. It’s such a good way to challenge yourself and honestly, you get an amazing sense of achievement afterwards. Children 8 and up are welcome to join this exciting adventure.

The tour costs $79 USD including transport, all caving equipment, towels, bottled water, and fresh fruit snacks afterward. It really is an incredible experience and I promise you won’t forget it in a hurry! You can book this caving experience online here.

Other Activities to do While You’re in La Fortuna

Free hot springs in La Fortuna 1

There are even more amazing tours we could have listed out of La Fortuna, so we wanted to add some additional activities in case you’re looking for more! With so many unique things to do in La Fortuna, you’ll never be bored. 

  • Visit Lake Arenal – As the largest lake in Costa Rica, the best way to explore it is by getting out on the water. You can have an active afternoon by taking a stand-up paddleboard (SUP) tour or a relaxing evening on a sunset cruise .
  • Hike to Hule Lagoon – If you’re looking to hike along the rim of a volcano, through the rainforest, and to a stunning lagoon, you must check out Hule Lagoon. The easiest way to reach it is with this full-day tour . It is a 1.5-hour drive, then 3-4 hours of guided hiking, followed by lunch! This is one of my top day trips out of La Fortuna. 
  • Relax in a free hot spring – Believe it or not, there are some amazing hot springs that are completely free outside of La Fortuna . The natural hot spring river runs right next to Tabacon Resort and is only a 15-minute drive from La Fortuna . There are shuttles that run from La Fortuna or parking attendants if you drive yourself, so it’s a convenient option for a soak.
  • Drink craft beer – Craft beer enthusiasts like me will appreciate the breweries in Costa Rica ! I love the brews at Lake Arenal Hotel and Brewery . It’s a 15-acre organic farm and you can also opt to stay the night, especially if you want to try a range of their beers!
  • Take a cooking class – The food is one of my favorite things about Costa Rica! The next best thing to eating locally-made Costa Rican food is learning to make it yourself. This 3-course cooking class is not only a super fun experience, but lets you get into the culture too!

Where to Stay in La Fortuna, Costa Rica

Because La Fortuna is such a big tourist town, there are a ton of amazing places to stay. Here are our top recommendations for every budget.

One of the go-to budget options is  Selina La Fortuna . I’ve stayed in Selina hostels around the world and this is a great one. It has a fun party atmosphere and a great co-working space where we spent a lot of time.

Selina Fortuna is located right in the middle of town, so you have easy access to great bars and restaurants nearby. Rates begin at $26 USD for a one-night stay in a dorm and $124 USD for a one-night stay in a private room. You can check availability and book on  Booking.com .

Those with a medium budget should check out  Casa Luna Hotel & Spa . I stayed here on my first visit to La Fortuna and loved it. The property is beautiful, with a large pool and four hot tubs surrounded by nature. You can also enjoy the tropical botanic garden at the hotel.

Casa Luna Hotel & Spa is near Arenal Volcano National Park, and all the rooms have views of the volcano and the rainforest. The hotel also includes a delicious breakfast in the $204 USD room rate. Casa Luna is located a short drive from town and you can reserve a room online on  Booking.com here .

For arguably the most luxurious hotel in La Fortuna, check out  The Springs Resort & Spa at Arenal . While the rooms don’t come cheap ($600 USD+), it’s a bucket list place to stay that’s perfect for  visiting Costa Rica on a honeymoon !

You’ll find 28 hot spring pools here, making the resort the perfect place if you really want to relax. There’s also a resort-style pool, a fitness center, a swim-up bar, hot tubs, and a spa and wellness center. You can reserve a room at The Springs Resort & Spa at Arenal  on Booking.com .

Getting Around Costa Rica

Bailey with our rental car near Rio Celeste Costa Rica

How you choose to get around Costa Rica is one of the biggest decisions you’ll make when planning your holiday here! How you do it depends on your budget, travel style, and comfort level. 

Without a doubt, the number one way to explore Costa Rica is in a rental car. We book rental cars on the Discover Cars website as we have had good experiences with them in the past.

One of the things you need to watch for when renting a car in Costa Rica is the mandatory insurance that the government requires you to have. There are a lot of very cheap rentals that don’t include this mandatory insurance (TPL) in the original booking price, but there are also ones that do. To avoid additional surprise charges when you pick up your rental car, be sure to rent a car that includes the mandatory insurance when you book.

Thankfully, on Discover Cars it’s easy to tell apart the companies that include the mandatory insurance and those that don’t. The trick is you can’t pick any car on their website. In the picture below, you can see this rental car, with pick up in Jaco, includes the TPL. That means the mandatory insurance is included in the price. Any cover you get above that is extra.

Of course, I still suggest getting the full coverage offered by Discover Cars, which covers you even more.

You can  browse cars on Discover Cars here .

TPL Cover Costa Rica

If renting a car isn’t in your budget, you don’t feel comfortable driving in Costa Rica , or you just don’t like driving, shuttles are the next best option. There are hundreds of shuttle routes available all over the country, and they are very affordable.

Shuttles in Costa Rica are specifically for tourists and often include pick up and drop off at your selected hotels and airports. The drivers also speak some English, and the vehicles have air conditioning. You’ll also be guaranteed a seat when you book a shuttle (which isn’t the case with the public bus system.)

To get the best price, use the website  Bookaway . They compare all the offers and prices of shuttle companies in Costa Rica so you get the best price! Honestly, we have saved so much money using Bookaway! 

You can search for shuttles online on Bookaway here.

Lastly, you can use the public bus system. On short journeys, such as from San Jose to La Fortuna or Uvita to Manuel Antonio, this system is great. However, the longer the journey the more hassle and time spent on a bus. It’s undoubtedly best to save the public bus in Costa Rica for short and straightforward trips!  

The public buses are definitely the cheapest way to get around Costa Rica, but they are not always very reliable and schedules often change without notice and delays are to be expected. The buses can also be very crowded and hot – so just be prepared!

It’s also good to speak some Spanish if you plan on riding the public bus since most drivers and ticket booth operators don’t speak English.

La Fortuna is the perfect launch point for outdoor exploration! It’s full of natural beauty with volcanoes, waterfalls, and wildlife plus adrenaline-pumping activities like whitewater rafting, ziplining, and canyoning. This makes La Fortuna the ideal destination for adventurous travelers, and tours are the best way to see it all. I know that we fell in love with this part of Costa Rica, so I can’t recommend visiting here enough! 

I hope you found this blog helpful as you plan your next tour out of La Fortuna. But don’t let this be the only part of Costa Rica you visit! Check out some of our guides to our favorite areas and activities:
