We stayed at Gringo Pete's Too for only one night, but I was very impressed by it. For only $6 a night per person (with a private bath) it was perfect for our group of 5 twenty-something backpackers. The rooms were clean, if modest, and the provided kitchen was nice and wonderful to have in La Fortuna. The best part of our stay here was Carlos--or Mr. Lava Lava--who took us up to the volcano for lava viewing and a stay at a hot springs. We didn't see any lava, but we did see a sloth and the volcano erupt! Carlos was awesome, friendly, funny, and a really good time! He also got us an AWESOME deal to Monteverde. We were planning on taking the jeep-boat-jeep transport to Monteverde (est.$35) from La Fortuna and then zipling (est. $49) once we got there. Carlos had a deal for $50 for both zipling at Extreme Zipline in Monteverde and the jeep-boat-jeep transport. We saved a bundle!!
