La Fortuna - Costa Rica

La Fortuna is a rural city located in the province of Alajuela, Costa Rica. La Fortuna received its name after the eruption of the Arenal Volcano in 1968. La Fortuna was originally called "El Borio" before the day of the eruption. In 1968, the Arenal Volcano erupted to the west, killing all in its path, including two villages. El Borio (La Fortuna) was located on the east side of the volcano and was untouched. After the eruption of the volcano, El Borio was renamed "La Fortuna", which means "the fortunate", referring to the towns luckiness during the eruption. Other than the volcano, La Fortuna has tourist attractions such as La Fortuna Waterfall, which falls from a height of 70 meters, several resorts with natural hot springs temperate enough to bathe in, other day spa services, and day-trips which involve horseback riding, whitewater rafting, hanging bridges, a "sky tram," zip-lines, mountain biking, kayaking, stand-up paddle boarding, ATV or dirt bike rentals, butterfly gardens, Venado Cavern tours, canyoneering and much more! see more see less
