Getting Here

Arenal Volcano Hotel Location

Our Arenal Lodge hotel is located in the La Fortuna area of Costa Rica, 200 meters NW of the dam at Arenal Lake.  There are two International airports that service Costa Rica as well as a regional airport in La Fortuna.


  • San Jose – (SJO) Juan Santamaría International Airport is located in the capital city of San Jose, Costa Rica. San Jose services most International Airlines.
  • Liberia – (LIR) Daniel Oduber Quirós International Airport is located in the Guanacaste region of Costa Rica in the city of Liberia.  Liberia services most International airlines.
  • Fortuna – (FON) La Fortuna Domestic Airport, Alajuela - Nature Air flies exclusively to La Fortuna on a daily basis from the Tobías Bolaños International Airport in Pavas just outside of Downtown San Jose. A roughly 30 minute trip, Nature Air flights are pretty affordable and great to get a glimpse of the Arenal in the distance.  Taxis are easily available outside the airport which is pretty basic in itself. The La Fortuna Airport has a simple office and an open air roof with some tables nearby. If you are boarding a plane from here a US$ 5 local fee is charged at the airport.


There are many transportation companies based at both San Jose International Airport and Liberia International Airport.  Additionally our on-site travel company can pre-arrange transfers. For more information and accurate pricing please email Jacamar Tours at or call toll free 1-800-719-6377 or local at 506-2479-9767.

One way taxi fare from San Jose is approximately $180-$200 for 1-4 people (flat rate). Jacamar Tours will charge approximately $162.00 one way.
