About the Property
Cabin, Studio & Loft, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)
La Fortuna, like it's name suggests, is a treasure and a must see for any Costa Rican vacation. Surrounded by lush rainforest, the majestic Arenal Volcano and Lake Arenal this small town and surrounding area have much to offer, and something for everyone. The area is considered the adventure capital of Costa Rica where you can experience a wide variety of tours and activities geared towards all levels of excitement and/or leisure, including but not limited to Canopy, Rafting, Safari float trips, SUP, sea kayaking, fishing, ATV, Horseback, Waterfall Rappel, Nature and Birdwatching Guided tours of the Rainforest and Arenal Nation Park, Hanging bridges and of course a number of world class Thermal Hot Springs and Spas.
Cabina Los Tucanes is a quaint and comfortable retreat built of sustainably farmed Chilean Pine. This simple, private, quiet Shangra-La offers a full kitchen with dining for four, a king bed, a closet and full bath with hot water, a loft with two single beds and a screened terrace overlooking the babbling brook, primary rainforest and mountains. This is an open floor plan, there are no dividing walls, just the glass sliders dividing the interior and exterior spaces. The cabin is approximately 650+ square feet large, with a separate covered parking area, on approximately 1.5 acres with 140 meters of creekfront bordering the Dendrobates Nature Reserve, one of the largest conglomerates of protected areas in the country extending all the way to Monteverde. The cabin offers basic Internet and local telephone service at no extra cost.
If you are looking for a more authentic peek into the Costa Rican countryside, off of the beaten path of the large hotels in the area, you're sure to experience it here amongst our private gardens surrounded by the soothing sounds of the babbling brook and the calls of the tropical rainforest.
The property boast ample green spaces, with a small pond and a swimming hole in the creek for a refreshing dip in the pure mountain waters that come out of the protected rainforest. If you wake up early you're liable to spot tucanes, oropendulas, aracaries and other exotic birds and wildlife species munching on the wide variety of endemic fruit trees, including guayabas or peach palms.
Maid service is provided on the day of check-in and after check-out, unless arranged prior to check-in, for which there is an additional cost of $ 20- per cleaning. There is basic Internet and local phone service (506 2479-0198).
Cabina Los Tucanes is a great location and value. with You may find other rental homes in the area for less money, however most of them are about 45 minutes from La Fortuna proper in the lakeside village of El Castillo.
If you are interested in visiting the white sand beaches of Costa Rica's Pacific coast, please take a moment to view my Award Wining beachfront property in Playa Santa Teresa where I will be happy to offer you a discounted rate (vrbo listings # 159161, 101202, 181810)

Unlike the vast majority of VRBO listings in the area we re located less than 10 minutes to downtown Fortuna and a 15-20 minute scenic drive to Arenal Volcano National Park, Lake Arenal and Numerous Natural Hot Springs, lush primary rain forests. There is a wide variety of tours available here in the Fortuna Arenal area. This is the ADVENTURE CAPITAL of COSTA RICA geared towards family fun !
Year Purchased: 2006
About: I moved to CR from Aspen Colo in 2002. I live here at the Cabin from May 1 to Nov 30. It is absolutely gorgeous ! It's a charming, real life doll house made of Chilean pine backing up to a nature reserve on the Rio El Cacao. I love the soothing sounds of the babbling brook and temperate tropical mountain climate, and all the activities that this area has to offer. There town is very friendly and geared towards eco-tourism. I also have three beachfront rental homes in Playa Santa Teresa and encourage all of my groups (up to 4-5 guests) to spend a few nights here in Fortuna whenever possible. This is the real Costa Rica ! If you are looking for an authentic rainforest experience with easy access to the Volcano, hot springs and town with all of the privacy and tranquility you can imagine... You've come to the right place ! I also have a beautiful Award Winning, property on the beach in the Pacific Coastal town of Santa Teresa and am happy to offer package deals for stays in both locations. My Concierge and I have over 35 years combined knowledge of the country and we are more that happy to assist you as much or as little as you like in planning your CR holiday. Our goal is not to simply sell you a night or two at the Cabin (although I can do that as well), but to assist you in making this the trip/family vacation of a lifetime. Finally, for those of you who can't live without Internet, please feel free to bring your laptop. We have a solid connection in both locations and laptop safes.
Why San Ramón, Costa Rica:
I fell in love with the Fortuna area in the late 1990's exploring the Pena Blancas river in kayak by day and watching the lava flow down the Arenal Volcano every night ! The place is magical ! The Hot Springs and Spas are world class and there is an abundance of wildlife and activities to enjoy here year round.
The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
Cabina Los Tucanes is a unique spot to relax and enjoy, away from the crowd. It is conveniently located with close proximity to most of the major tourist attractions in the area, yet distinguishes itself apart from virtually all the hotels in the area as a private home with ample privacy, peace and quiet. You will not find anything else like it anywhere else in this area. This private home is available on a limited basis (from Dec 1 to April 30). If you are looking for an authentic CR experience, be it a rainforest, canopy, river rafting, volcano adventure or simply a relaxing in harmony with nature here or at the local hot springs, you'll find the best of both worlds here at Cabina Los Tucanes. Again, I also have a beautiful Award Winning, beachfront property in the Pacific Coastal town of Santa Teresa and am happy to offer package deals for stays in both locations. My Concierge and I have over 35 years combined knowledge of the country and we are more that happy to assist you as much or as little as you like in planning your CR holiday. Our goal is not to simply sell you a night or two at the Cabin (although I can do that as well), but to assist you in making this the trip of a lifetime. Finally, for those of you who can't live without Internet, please bring your laptop. We have a solid connection in both locations and laptop safes.
