It's been a long time since I've visited La Fortuna. Obviously I have a bias for the place (my name is Kevin Fortuna), and I've been meaning to get back there. Can anyone recommend a decent hotel that is nice, clean, but not too expensive? Thanks!
In the village of La Fortuna, I recommend Hotel San Bosco. The rooms are neat and clean, the grounds well kept, and they have a pool and hot tub. Centrally located in Fortuna, you can walk to restaurants and shops. The third floor has an observation deck too. There are hotels closer to the volcano but naturally they are higher priced. Hope this helps! Lisa in Manuel Antonio
Just some quick advice as to where not to stay! We stayed at a place called Hostal Las Palmas, which though clean, was run by a bit of a psycho. He does tours himself but he thought we had organised tours with a different tour operator so he went a bit crazy about that and when we came to pay he demanded a mental dollar - colones exchange rate and got physically agressive when we refused to pay it. If you can avoid it, don´t go there!
