“Solid Food”
Reviewed March 25, 2013

A ever changing menu with daily specials, we had ceviche which was good but more fruity as opposed to the lemon/onion/vinegar tang I was used to. Also, we had the sesame tuna (average) and red curry shrimp (average to above average). entrees ran aprox 10-12 and drinks were cheap.

“Great for Dinning in, not for takeout”
Reviewed March 25, 2013

I went to La Fortuna for a sit down dinner and was impressed. Service was great, the food was good. Had the steak kabob, would recommend. It was a successful trip.

I returned a few days later to order a few pizzas carry out (about 3:30-4pm), was told they would be ready 30 minutes. An hour and 15 minutes later, I finally received my pizzas. The pizzas were thickly lain in cheese 1 cm thick. I would have been OK if they said the pizzas would be ready in an hour, it would have given me time to explore the town, but instead i had to sit and wait for 45 minutes as i expected the pizzas to be ready 'any minute'.

“Sparks will fly!”
Reviewed March 15, 2013

This town is at the base of the volcano and at night you can take a tour to see sparks of lava glowing in the night sky. There is an awesome hike called Cherro Chato, the locals may warn you against it, but if you are in good shape and looking for a fairly challenging hike, it is worth the trip. At the same place, there is a waterfall walk that can accomadate most accessibilty needs. Be sure to stop at the hot spring while you are there! you can get day-passes for reasonalbe rates, but it is well worth the splurge if you are on a backpackers budget (especially after a long hike). If you want an extremely colorful tour guide (who can score some good deals on hot-springs rates) ask for Mr. Lava Lava. Probably not family friendly, but definately one of the most memorable people I met in La Fortuna.

“Lively Little Town”
Reviewed February 23, 2013

Many great restaurants, nice hotels/hostels with reasonable rates. Close to adventure. Close to free fun like the river, free hot springs and a quick jaunt to the national park.
