La Fortuna de San Carlos, Arenal Volcano National Park, Province of Alajuela
The first thing people usually say after arriving at the Posada Colonial is that 'The pictures don't do it justice'. We are confident from our reviews that you, your family and your friends will feel the same way.

We are central, yet secluded, with patios, balconies and grounds looking on to the world famous Arenal Volcano. This Almendro home has a wrap-around balcony, is gated and very private. We have WI-fi, cable and Sky TV, indoor and outdoor dining with flowers, birds and butterflies everywhere. It is a natural paradise.

We are near the charming town of La Fortuna, and our area is famous for its diversity of interests. These include bird watching, river rafting, jungle cruises, jungle canopy tours, butterfly farms, horseback riding, world famous spas and hot springs or relaxing and enjoying the best views of the spect...

Grant is superb to work with. Great communication beforehand and afterward. We ordered wonderful Tico fare breakfast (included). Great chef, I think her name was Maria? YUM!
Great location, close to Arenal and LaFortuna. The place has huge wrap around porches on two levels. Great for the morning bird shows, Maria puts out fruit which lures them in. A tad rustic, but we loved it. Don't forget to hike down to the creek, it's a slice of rainforest heaven!

Management response:

Thanks so much for your kind words, Michael. We've relied exclusively on our reviews over the years and being new to TripAdvisor we hope to accumulate many more here so future guests are aware of what we have to offer. Miriam had become quite well known for her breakfasts and now, with her dinner offerings, especially given the location and...

About the neighbourhood
Because of its natural surroundings of waterfalls, birds, monkeys, lakes, etc. the Arenal Volcano area has become the most popular tourist destination in Costa Rica. Arenal Volcano and the toucan, both of which are regularly viewed from the patio and property, have become symbols for Costa Rican tourism. The days are easily filled with water rafting, hiking, nature tours, horseback riding, zipline tours, quiet river tours, and so on. Because of the cooler climate in La Palma we have far more varieties of birds, flowers, butterflies, etc.
Getting around
I usually advise tourists to rent an automobile if possible ( a 4x4 is not necessary) but buses, taxis, shuttles, etc. are readily available.
