TravelPod Member ReviewsArenal Lodge La Fortuna
Property location has a great view. Received an upgrade on checkin to the honeymoon suite. Not impressive at all. Beds very uncomfortable, room drafty (windows did not all close). Other furniture in room in need of replacement. Much deferred maintenance on rooms. Lodge o.k., small gym, restaurant expensive for the mediocre quality it was, except for the breakfast which was excellent. You need a car here. Staff was helpful., but for the price I Would stay elsewhere if I returned to Arenal again.

Encouraged by the fresh climate we decided to walk back to town and after an hour made it to a craft-work shop, where after perusing local wares for some time we discovered that a tree outside had become occupied by a large group of black howler monkeys. We stood and watched as a baby howler cautiously teetered on the high branches and the alpha male aggressively howled at any passing vehicles larger than an SUV. Once back in town we enjoyed American quality Mexican ...
... we finished, we had a bunch of baskets full of food that we carried along with us to all the animal cages. We started off with the spider monkeys, Jessica and Hercules. We each got to hold a piece of fruit in our hand, right outside the cage, and then Jessica and Hercules would reach out and take them from us. It was very cool. And they were very hungry. Although they much preferred the bananas.
We next got to feed the parrots and macaws. That meant we actually got to ...
