Off to Costa Rica in search of cool volcanoes, canyoning and chocolate or coffee tours? Check into Selina La Fortuna, where chilled-out vibes run free. 10 minutes' drive from Arenal Volcano, this natural nest in La Fortuna in Alajuela sits in a lively agricultural town… make base and set out for treks through lava fields, dips in hot springs and wildlife spotting in the rainforest, with the knowledge you'll get to always return to a sweet hideaway where you can bask in volcano views.
Rise and shine with a vegan breakfast or super smoothie, as this family-friendly and dog-friendly wildlife haven will let you take on the outdoors at your own pace. Nearby, rent a canoe, go horseback riding through the forest or find adrenaline-induced adventures at several activity centres within five minutes’ drive. And if you’re in need of some relaxing and rejuvenating, you can try the Kalambu Hot Springs hot springs within five minutes' drive.
Carefree is the word back on site, as the laidback co-working space will help you keep on top of your emails (there’s wifi available on site and a café to top up your energy supplies). Try out a communal cooking class in the kitchen, lounge beside the outdoor pool with a cocktail from the on-site bar or perhaps divulge the tales of the day around the communal firepit.
As the sun sets, you can jig to live folkloric music in the outdoor common area and meet travellers from all over the world. If you feel like venturing off the site, there are also plenty of hidey-holes within walking distance, including restaurants, cafés and bars (and shops for snacks on the go).

If you need a hand spotting the wildlife, there’s the Sloth Watching Trail La Fortuna (two minutes' drive) and the Rainforest Chocolate Tour (five minutes) And North Fields Coffee Tour (five minutes) for more caffeine-powered educational tours. Adrenaline fans will surely want to stop by the photograph-friendly El Salto rope swing (five minutes) too.
Really dig deep into the local rainforests with a hike past frogs and crocodiles at Arenal Natura Ecological Park (10 minutes). Then, visit Catarata Río Fortuna (10 minutes), a 70-metre waterfall among packed treetops. The volcano-based hanging bridges also stack up for a teeth-gritting show at Mistico Arenal Hanging Bridges Park (25 minutes).
As for lava trails, observation decks and hot springs, there are all sorts spread over Arenal Volcano (10 minutes) and its national park. Meanwhile, Chato Volcano (35 minutes) has a lagoon, lake and seemingly endless hiking paths too. For water-based activities, it's also just 20 minutes to Lake Arenal if you fancy swimming or boat rentals.
