We stopped here as part of our Mambo Combo tour package. We had no idea this was to be included and were pleasantly surprised with the experience. We signed up for the Lost Canyon Jungle course and the Arenal Rio Balso River rafting. Desafio (the company who conducted the tours) told us a meal would be provided. They took us to Casona Rio Fortuna to have an authentic Costa Rican meal and we were not disappointed. The hosts: Eli and Milton were very welcoming. The food was delicious (some of the best authentic food we had on our trip) and the view was spectacular. We were shown how they make their own brown sugar and rum. This ended up being the highlight of our day!
