La Fortuna to Monteverde
Travel from town to town can always be a bit confusing. There seems to be so many different ways, bus, flight, shuttle, taxi, what’s the right way to go? Should you book prior or just see what you find? I decided to leave our travel from La Fortuna to Monteverde unbooked, to me that is the only way to get the best pricing and decide what options are available. La Fortuna to Monteverde by car would require you to go all the way around both volcanos and lake Arenal, travelling way west before you head South down to Monteverde. Probably taking over 4 hours.
We found an option they call ‘Jeep-Boat-Jeep’, where a shuttle bus picks you up at your accomodations and drives to lake Arenal. You then take a boat across the lake and another shuttle is waiting for you on the other side which takes you to your accomodations in Monteverde. The trip across the lake was really nice and I always find bus trips an amazing way to see the landscape. I would highly recommend this option if travelling from La Fortuna to Monteverde, or vice versa. The cost was $20US per person and we set it up through our accomodations but there was many options to book in town as well.
