When I booked this trip, I was hoping to have an awesome vacation, I didn't realize I had signed up for a week in paradise. La Fortuna is one of the most amazing places I have ever visited. Steve and Kat, who own La Fortuna are fabulous people. They have designed an amazing slice of heaven with four bungalows, a wood-fired hot tub and the friendliest staff. The food, which they cook themselves is amazing and delicious. You are always greeted with smiles by everyone. If you know any spanish, the staff is so friendly and eager to chat with you. Steve and Kat think of everything you could need before you even need it. Oh and their accommodating of my gluten-free needs was outstanding!
Highlights - hammocks on the front porch that you can read in for hours, delicious hot coffee, friendly staff, kayaks, beautiful grounds, most comfortable bedding.
I can't recommend La Fortuna enough!
