La Fortuna (meaning lucky!)… a good name for a village lying around a well awaken Volcano. You can’t miss … it dominates all the surroundings from wherever you are. Majestic and apparently quiet, but if you look closer (a binocular will be very useful) you’ll see him breading… a small line of smoke coming out the top.
I visited Costa Rica in April 2019, staying for 2 happy and adventurous weeks, searching for hidden places beyond the hot spots highlighted in most guides!
If you are looking for paradise, you might want to start here!
Koh Kood has all you can ask for: white-sand beaches, warm and crystal-clear sea, waterfalls, good food, and breath-taking landscapes. A low populated small island not (yet) in the touristic intensive circuits, keeping its genuineness. Coconut drop might be your only worry 😉
