If you go to Fortuna you must see the Arenal Volcano. The town was made around the volcano, and almost everything dealing with tourist revolves around the volcano. It is very active and at night be sure to look up and some red lava chunks falling out of the rim, looks like fireworks. During the day head over to the Volcan Arenal Parque National and take a hike around the base of the volcano. Be sure to be very quiet and you can hear the rumbeling of the volcano. Also about every three minutes a car-sized chunk of lava falls from the rim and tumbels down the side of the volcano, it appears like a falling cloud down the volcano during the day and a firework at night. Really awesome!
