re: Taxis from airport to hotels

Hola- Is it less expensive to get a taxi from La Fortuna airport (Nature Air) to Lost Iguana than the hotel picking us up? They quote $40 to pick us up.

It is quite a distance, the airport is not truly in La Fortuna. I would ask Nature Air if they provide or recommend a service, and the last time I was by the airport, I did see 3-4 taxis rojos out front with the drivers all chatting about something...must have been a slow day. If $40US is your baseline, make the drivers an offer, after all they want to go back to town.

Have a safe flight.

Most of the time the Hotels charge more for any transportaion...maybe in your case is better to try to deal with a taxi once at arrival...some people hang around El Tanque Airport at each flight the ride to La Fortuna is about 25 minutes to Lost Iguana can be about 40 minutes...is not a short distance!
