Great Little Find in La Fortuna!This is a lovely little hotel in La Fortuna, within an easy walk of restaurants and Costa Rican “Sodas”. An easy drive to Cataracts Rio Fortuna and Mistico. The hotel provides free access to the thermal hot springs at their “sister” hotel, Volcano Lodge. A great find at an amazing price!
