La Casona Rio Fortuna

This 100-year old wooden country estate is a historic landmark near Arenal Volcano and is well worth a visit during your Costa Rican holiday.

Surrounded by lush green farmland and offering spectacular views of the volcano and lake, La Casona Rio Fortuna preserves traditions and customs of the local people for an authentic Costa Rican day out. Enjoy horseback riding across the estate, take a trip in an oxcart to see the local school perform folk dances or take a cooking class with the friendly locals. You can also feast on a typical local lunch, prepared on a traditional wood stove, stroll through the surrounding orchards and flower gardens, and take a tractor excursion to the fruit plantations to see fresh pineapple, papaya, plantain and cassava.

Explore rural Costa Rican lifestyle and soak up the warm hospitality on this trip that offers a touch of authenticity.
