Wonderful park on church grounds.
Jul 2021 • Family
We didn’t get a chance to go to mass however the park beside and around the church is very nice. We enjoyed sitting on benches while deciding what to do next.

Great spot for photos
May 2021
This is a lovely small park with the church in the backdrop. Work is being done on the church so no real impressive photos.

While walking in downtown La Fortuna, you cannot miss this great landmark. It's doors were open and lends itself for an opportunity to reflect and be thankful for all the blessing one has. Its a must see.

An interesting and typical Catholic church for this geographical area
Mar 2019
Church in La Fortuna de San Carlos is one of La Fortuna's tourist attractions. An interesting and typical Catholic church for this geographical area. It is interesting that there is no crucified Christ like most temples, but the image of the risen Christ ascending to heaven. Next to the park in the center of La Fortuna, you should stop to see that building and take a photo with the Arenal volcano.

A small church with no distinguishing characteristics
Dec 2019
A nice enough small chapel with an imposing tower in somewhat poor condition. Photo op from park across the street to see the church in front of the volcano. They did have a lovely nativity scene and a talkative docent.

Fine Nativity scene otherwise nothing special
Dec 2019 • Family
A modern Catholic church of no significance. Big Nativity scenes put up during Christmas time. There is also a class coffin with a lifesize effigy of a dead saint.

Pretty church with an impressive flower ceremony.
Jun 2019 • Couples
We have visited La Fortuna twice, both times in June, and have been able to witness an impressive flower ceremony on the four streets surrounding the church. The streets were closed off and massive artwork was formed on the streets using many bushels of flower petals. Some of the designs were several feet across and several inches deep -- all made with piles of petals. After the church service, the priest walked all the way around the block, over the flower designs, carrying a cross, followed by his congregation. We found no one in town (or on the internet) who could tell us the meaning of this ceremony.

Even without the ceremony, it is a pretty church surrounded by a full block of well-kept grounds facing a one-block city park.

Spectacular Catholic church downtown La Fortuna with a volcano view
Apr 2019
I was jogging the town in the morning when I spotted this gem. Open space - the surrounding park is nice, and the church itself has a wide entrance leaving it free for visitors to peak into without barriers. It was around 7 am and people were sitting in the church or just on the stairs having coffee. Nice and calm. Good for those having meditation / prayer in the morning.
