We enjoyed amazing views of this impressive man-made lake via the SkyTrek SkyTram! It was absolutely beautiful! Highly recommend!

The lake and its views of the volcano are beautiful. There are not many people that use the lake, which makes it nice and peaceful. We booked an all day fishing trip on the lake which was great. We had a lot of fun, caught a bunch of fish and have some great photos.

Beautiful man-made lake. We drove around it from Fortuna. Worth the drive. Stop at Toad Hall. It is a hoot!

For a trip to La Fortuna, there are many other attractions which would be better to spend your time at. If you do happen to do the drive around the lake, it is pretty neat all of the different climates and types of vegetation you get to see.

Driving from la Fortuna to the beach was amazing. The views along this road were spectacular. There were many opportunities to take post card photos. Really made the drive worth it
