My boyfriend and I got in late to La Fortuna and just stayed at a hotel in the center of town for the night. We woke up wanting to switch locations.. to something that would really capture the Costa Rican experience. Hotel Cerro Azul was perfect! The little cabanas were clean, quaint and I loved relaxing on the hammock (which was located on the back porch facing out to a lovely garden). Hearing the rain and birds chirping in the morning was very peaceful - and we slept like a rock! Albero, the owner, was awesome and directed us to a local food joint downtown that was delicious. He let us and our friends keep belongings at the hotel after we checked out so that we could go on a hike to the waterfall and Cerro Chato (the trail heads about a 40-min walk or short cab ride away).. Also a cool swimming hole/rope swing a short walk away! The only bad thing was that we only were able to stay here for one night due to our minimal time left in Costa Rica! This place is ideal for anyone who doesn't need all the bells and whistles, but just a relaxing time in some beautiful surroundings.
