One of the most incredible places we've ever stayed, stunning views across Lake Atitlan, a delicious and varied menu, beautifully appointed bungalows and there's simply no better place to unwind than their wood heated hot tub overlooking the lake. Kat and Steve have created a real gem and we can't wait to go back!

My mom, my sister and I spent six nights at La Fortuna and had the most wonderful time there! Even though we had made plans in advance to visit a lot of places around the lake, we ended up spending most of our time at La Fortuna. It really felt like paradise!! The bungalows and the main reception building are...

Magical place. Best food. Best owners. Best doggies. Best hike. Best look. We are obsessed! Every detail at La Fortuna is thoughtful - from the beautiful bungalows and the magical outdoor showers, to the absolutely delicious options on the menu. Some days during our trip, we never left the premises. We hung out on the hammock, in the hot tub,...

I was looking for a place to take my wife on a surprise trip for her 40th birthday and chose La Fortuna on a rapturous recommendation from a friend. It seemed impossible that the place could live up to the rhetoric, but...
