Traditional Tic@ Hospitality
We had a wonderful time. We visited La Fortuna years ago and since we’ve been back, many things have changed. We liked Cascada because it gave us the experience we had before; a modest and humble place where you see true Tic@ hospitality

Like staying with family...The ones you like.
My son and I were staying in La Fortuna in April, and they are now my favorite inn to stay at. The rooms were spic-n-span and very convenient. It's right across the way from the city park which has a really gorgeous view. The owner Marvin and his family were phenomenal with their service and were very friendly to us. If I were to recommend any hotel in La Fortuna, it would be this one. Great prices, delightful crew, and a welcoming atmosphere. From their environmentally conscience practices to their smiling faces, they sure do know how to make a guest feel right at home. Pura Vida mi amigos!
