Quiet rural area, 6 km away from Cerro Arenal’s site. La Fortuna is a quiet farming place. Arenal volcano demolished the small villages of Pueblo Nuevo, San Luís, and Tabacón in 1968 after almost 400 years of dormance. Visitors from all over the world began to converge massively searching for fiery night skys and the inevitable fluttering shot of lava. La Fortuna remains one of Costa Rica’s top tourist attractions, despite the fact that the broad mountain ceased its molten discharge in 2010.
