La Fortuna travel tips

Which neighborhoods in La Fortuna should I stay in if I want access to public transport?

La Fortuna does not currently have an extensive public transport system. The town is small and walkable, but you’ll need a set of wheels to get to attractions in the surrounding area. There are plenty of public transport options for getting into and out of La Fortuna, but within the town the buses are infrequent. The bus leaves twice a day from the La Fortuna bus station near the central park and goes around Lake Arenal. It stops at many points of interest along the way. The bus is also fairly cheap. If the bus isn’t for you, then opt for a rental car. For easy access to the public bus, though, choose hotels downtown like Secreto La Fortuna.
