Can anyone tell me where the bus station is in La Fortuna where I can catch a bus to Alajuela? I will be leaving La Fortuna on Sunday morning. Approximately how long is the bus ride?

It's about 3.5 hours from La Fortuna to Alajuela. You will change in San Carlos. It's best to just get the bus for San Jose and get off in Alajuela.

Take a look at this map: http://www.arenal.net/la-fortuna-map.htm and you can see where the bus station is located.
