Activities/Attractions: La Fortuna is a small town located next to the Arenal Volcano. In La Fortuna you can find services such as clinics, pharmacies, banks and ATMs, super markets, bakeries, restaurants, and a 24-hour gas station. The town has spectacular views of the volcano.
Arenál Volcano is an active andesitic strato-volcano in north-western Costa Rica (10.5N, 84.7 W), around 90 km north-west of San José, in the province of Alajuela, canton of San Carlos, and district of La Fortuna. It is the most active and youngest volcano in Costa Rica. Recognized as a volcano since the 19th century, it was known by foreign investigators as Volcán Costa Rica, Rio frio, Canastos Volcano and Cerro de los Guatusos. Scientists have been able to date it back to more that 4000 years ago. The area remained largely unexplored until 1937 when a documented expedition took place to reach the summit.
Hummingbird Cottage is set in a 22-acre property which was bought by the present owners in 1997 and converted into a privately funded ecological restoration and conservation project. If you are interested, we invite you to explore the project using our hiking trails, either on your own or simply accompany us on our daily routine.
"The Hummingbird Cottage is the ideal place to start exploring the natural attractions of our 22-acre rainforest reserve together with the owner's art studio set in lush tropical gardens".
