Whether you are traveling as a couple, group, or family, and desire an unencumbered connection with nature, a stay at the Cabanitas Resort may just fit the bill. Located outside the small, yet charming town of La Fortuna in the northern region of Costa Rica, the rustic cabins create a quaint retreat experience. Removed from any conveniences of city life, and with an unhindered view of Arenal Volcano, this accommodation can be a nature seeker’s dream come true. Cabinitas Resort isn’t considered posh in any sense of the word, but it does provide an enjoyable and quiet stay that offers a pool, restaurant, complimentary breakfast, laundry service and parking.
The magnitude of Arenal Volcano cannot go unnoticed as you unwind and dip your toes into the area’s soothing hot springs, explore the waterfalls, discover native wildlife, and hike the rainforest trails surrounding this epic landmark. Here, you can capture awe-inspiring photos to take home as souvenirs. La Fortuna and the Arenal area are often and suitably referred to as the Adventure Capital of Central America because of their expansive list of activities and gorgeous sites.
The rainforest alone will capture your breath and is bursting with opportunities to see iguanas, monkeys, and beautifully colored birds. Zipline through the sprawling tropical forest, try your hand at canyoning, visit a butterfly house or brave a Serpentarium. For those who appreciate a more leisurely vacation approach, book a peaceful jungle cruise.
The resort’s complimentary breakfast will get you started out with plenty of energy to explore the day’s activities. Then, after a full day of adventuring, you might like to take advantage of the hotel’s onsite laundry service, available for an additional charge. Wi-Fi is offered but only accessible in the reception area. A 15 to 20-minute walk will have you in La Fortuna’s town center sampling the local dish of Gallo Pinto and discovering the warmth of Costa Rican culture. And if you are in the mood for a cold cocktail or cerveza, a trip into town is necessary, as there is no alcohol served on the property.
Cabanitas Resort has 42 rustic cabin style rooms that can easily accommodate couples or families. Each room includes air conditioning, a coffee maker, and a phone. A stay at Cabanitas Resort isn’t going to be an immersion in luxury, but its simple charm and reasonably priced rooms afford you the extra pocket change to fully enjoy the natural beauty and all of the local activities that the La Fortuna area has to offer.
