Located in Arenal, La Fortuna waterfall lies at the base of the dormant Cerro Chato volcano. The 70 metre waterfall is surrounded by a lush green jungle where you can hear the sounds of tropical animals in their habitat. For any adventure seekers, you can visit La Fortuna Waterfall and Cerro Chato in one day. But it definitely takes a lot of stamina, especially in the rain.
Let's get started!
Since the entrance is accessible by road, we took a taxi to La Fortuna waterfall. When you get there you'll have to pay a US$10 fee to get in, but you're free to stay until it closes. Luckily, the trail to the bottom of the falls is pretty well laid out so you won't get lost. I noticed that some parts can get slippery, so be careful on your hike.
You'll pretty much be heading down stairs until you reach the bottom. From here, you can check out the falls or head over to the water hole to go swimming. It takes about a 10 minutes to hike down and 20 minutes to hike back up.
Stretch out those legs because they're definitely going to be getting a workout!
