Activities

Attractions and Tours information



Poas Volcano: It is one of the most spectacular volcanoes in Costa Rica. Fabulous view of the central valley, featuring the third largest crater in the world. Appx: 30 minutes from La Catalina Resort and 3 hours from the Copacabana in Jaco.

La Paz Waterfall: Is a wonder to see and one of the more natural beauties visited in Costa Rica. Features a butterfly farm, humming bird area and orchids which are rich in flora and fauna. Only 30 minutes from La Catalina, and approximately 3 hours from The Copacabana in Jaco.

Irazu Volcano: One of the most beautiful places to visit with pleasant weather. From one of the trams you can enjoy and experience all this volcano has to offer. Only 1 to 1 and half hours from La Catalina Hotel & Suites.

Arenal Volcano: In Arenal you will marvel at the rich biodiversity of the rain forest, discover a 40 mile lake and watch an active volcano at night. Take advantage of the hot springs in the area, great for your health. Only a two hour drive from La Catalina.

Canopy Tours: Costa Rica is mostly covered in rainforest and one of the most loved ways to explore it, is through a canopy tour. It is a great way to see the whole forest without disturbing the nature and wildlife within it. The tour is experienced through zipping across a zip line between two platforms high in the forest. If zipping is not for you then most tours also feature a hanging bridge walk through the jungle. Definitily one of the most thrilling experiences in Costa Rica.

Tortuga Island Tour: Departing from the Port of Puntarenas to Tortuga Island, you will enjoy live music of the Island. Once there you find white sandy beach, clear water, snorkeling, canoeing or just relax under the palms. 1.5 hours from La Catalina and the Copacabana

Butterfly Farm: Butterflies have approximately 20,000 species worldwide, with 5 % found in Costa Rica. Seeing the butterfly farm on a sunny day is the best option when all of the species are out. Butterfly farms are found all over Costa Rica including at Lapaz Waterfall.

More Tours: Coffee Plantation Tours, ATV Tours, Horseback Riding, White Water Rafting, Wildlife Park Tours, Museums.

This time we stay in a new Presidente Jacuzzi,clean, nice and good decorated. But this time we took the all inclusive program, that you can buy onsite. We enjoy the food and the drinks.

"Where do I start with this resort and hotel, there is so much to talk about, with the great views and service featured, I had such a great time. Being from the city I never get views like from what I got at LaCatalina. LaCatalina looks over the valley where you get to look down at the whole city, and at night its simply breathtaking seeing the lights from the whole city. The rooms were very spacey and everything was very comfortable inside. The grounds were very beautiful with a lot of flowers around. We enjoyed everything that was available there from the workout facility, tennis court and the two swimming pools.

would Love to go back next year"
