Crowned by the majestic Arenal Volcano, La Fortuna is one of Costa Rica's top destinations for both adventure and relaxation.  It is the perfect spot for a short Costa Rican adventure. Here, supersized zipline courses and hanging bridges crisscross the lush rainforest, meaning there are plenty of things to do in La Fortuna for thrillseekers and wildlife watchers alike. After a day in the treetops—or a hike to the stunning La Fortuna Waterfall—travelers can soak in the area's mineral rich hot springs.
