We spent three nights at La Catarata. The rooms were a little small but perfectly adequate for a couple or a couple with one young child. The hotel rooms are grouped in pairs around a beautiful garden; two rooms to a cabin. Outside each door is a veranda and hammock. The garden was very peaceful and a wonderful place to... More

Catarata Eco-Lodge was clean, with beautiful flowering bushes, trees, & colorful birds everywhere. We really enjoyed the peace & quiet there. Everyone at the hotel was very accommodating. Victor was especially helpful, made suggestions on activities and was very patient to answer all our questions regarding the area. The hotel is located just a few minutes from downtown La Fortuna...

This lodge is for the rustic lovers. It is located a few minutes drive from the town and is surrounded by the animals. We the landscape is very natural. The rooms are very small and basic with a double bed and single bed, but clean. What makes this place stand out in my mind was the service from the young... More

Catarata Eco-Lodge is a set of apartment-style rooms set in a beautiful garden full of flowers, birds, and a lovely pool. It was to be the first stop of our itinerary, and we were attracted by the promise of a quiet location and pool, and the fact that it is Costa Rican owned and run, with an ecological ethos. The...

The lodge is located a couple of miles outside of La Fortuna, close enough if you have a car like we did, but it might be somewhat inconvenient if you don't. It has a very beautiful setting in a rural area, fairly close to the La Fortuna Waterfall. The service was friendly upon check-in and the rest of our stay.... More

We absolutely enjoyed our stay at Catarata Eco-Lodge (not to be confused with the much larger Las Cataratas Resort nearby). According to our guidebook, it is run by a local sustainable development association. - Walking Distance (2 km uphill) to the Cataratas Waterfall - a must see (and must swim in!) in Fortuna. - Views of Arenal Volcano - Nestled...

This is a nice, simple little lodge a few minutes outside of La Fortuna in the Arenal area of Costa Rica. The host is very nice, and the whole place has a gentle, peaceful mood. This is a basic accommodation--nothing fancy, but simple and clean. Very tasty typico breakfast. You can see Arenal and Cerro Chato from the property, and... More
