This place was a gem in this town. Just slightly removed from the noise of the city. Clean, neat, and super friendly. They offered FREE internet and FREE calls to the US. It was cool. The pool is really nice and the folks were great. I suggest you take a look at this if you want to see the volcano...

Malania and her family were so kind to us during our first two nights in Costa Rica, and that hospitality followed us around the entire country. The room was perfect, with a great view of the volcano! We did not have a rental car in La Fortuna, but Malania's husband drive us to his favorite restaurant for dinner our first...

From the moment we arrived at Vista Del Cerro, we knew we had made the right choice of accomodations in Fortuna. The owner's son, Jonathan, knew who we were, before we even said anything. He brought us to our room, which is simple in design...but very cozy and IMMACULATELY clean. Instantly our 6 year old son, had made a new...

This is a great place to stay in La Fortuna - it's motel style and on the highway about 1 mile from La Fortuna. The lady who runs it is a sensation. It is very clean, new, good air conditioning and good TV. You won't be troubled by the traffic and at $40 per night the value is exceptional. Great...

This place is right outside La Fortuna, so although you need a car, it's easy to get there. It's on the main road, but there were no noise issues. It's right across from a grocery store too, in case you need some supplies or beer. Rooms were well-kept and large, and the bestt part was that when you open the...
