See one of the natural treasures of Alajuela Province with a visit to La Fortuna Waterfall. Travel by car from your La Fortuna hotel to the spectacular cascade, where you can observe from a viewpoint or hike down a trail for a closer look and swim in the river. A guide accompanies you to point out surrounding highlights and ensure a seamless experience.
  • See the tropical cascade that drops 230 feet (70 meters) from a jungle cliff
  • Watch from an observation deck or hike down a steep trail to the bottom of the falls
  • Learn about area highlights from a guide
  • Cool off with a swim in the Arenal River
  • Choice of morning or afternoon departure
Choose from a morning or afternoon tour, and meet your driver and guide during pickup at your La Fortuna hotel. Travel in a shared vehicle about 3.5 miles (5.5 km) to reach La Fortuna Waterfall — a magnificent cascade fed by the Arenal River. The surrounding rainforest and tributaries of Arenal-Monteverde play an important role in area conservation and deliver clean drinking water to local communities.

The sight of the white jet of water streaming out of the lush jungle and falling from a height of about 230 feet (70 meters) is one of Arenal’s chief natural attractions. Watch from an observation deck or, if you like, climb down a steep and rocky 985-foot (300-meter) trail to reach the bottom of the falls. Here, you can get an up-close look at the splash zone and take a refreshing swim in the river.

Your guide will show you around the area and make sure your visit to the waterfall is safe and stress-free. The tour concludes with drop-off back at your hotel.
