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.

So if a rescued peccary was released in the wild, he would smell different than the existing families and would not be accepted. Instead, the sanctuaries provide a place for the peccaries to live out their lives.
Our next stop was to visit a blue macaw. Carlos had a lot of funny stories about how the macaws are monogomous and find a mate to spend their entire life ...
... places. Apparently the lakeside, pretty as it is, has been overtaken by expats from various countries. For the record we chose Moya's Place and had a great meal. As we neared La Fortuna we saw Arenal Volcano - the premier attraction here. Well, we saw the base of it. The top was in the clouds. It's been named as one of the ten most active volcanoes in the world but it has been pretty quiet the last couple of years. We also saw plenty of thermal ...
I stayed at the Hotel Casa Rio Blanco Eco Friendly B&B in Rio Blanco. This place was a great
little find. The lodge was set on the edge of the rain forest, the lodges were well kept, clean and had hot showers. Food was supplied ...
