We arrived at the lodge after driving straight from the airport in San Jose. The Clerk who greeted us was named Miguel and he did speak English. He seemed a little off from the beginning and annoyed. During registration we asked if they had WiFi and if any other people were staying at the compound since it was during the off season and we did not see any other vehicles parked. He immediately became belligerent and called us drunken swine in Spanish. We had a Hispanic person in our party.

Carro chato is a must stay if you are visiting la Fortuna. The owner is extremely helpful and knowledgable and the site is clean and safe. Location is great as it's far enough from the downtown noise but its in walking distance to the falls.


Great place and the owner was really helpful.
