2/28.- Arenal National Park, the Arenal Lake
The Arenal Volcano is located very near the town of La Fortuna de San Carlos. This town is three and a half hours north of the capital of Costa Rica, San Jose.
La Fortuna is the place to stay if you want to visit the Arenal Volcano.
To get to La Fortuna you can rent a car, join an organized tour, or take one of the local buses. La Fortuna is only accessible by road and by boat (from Monteverde). The area has no train station or airport. Roads, as everywhere else in Costa Rica, are not in very good condition. If you want to rent a car, I can only recommend a four- wheel drive vehicle.
