New Year at the Arenal

I will be at the Arenal La Fortuna hotel for the New Year. Can anyone tell me where you can enjoy the new year night. I am 64 years old, well traveled, love the latino/spanish music and I do understand very well the language. Traveling alone, any suggestion. I was told the are some discos around but I think is more for the younger.

Any suggestion, I thank you

Hello for the new year eve there are many activities in La Fortuna like (volcan look discoteque now Academia de musica and Herradura discoteque and most of the hotels offers special activities like dinners and fireworks.

But if you want a real tico exprience go to the Surrouding towns like EL TANQUE 10 minutes driving from La Fortuna, CHACHAGUA 20 minutes driving from La Fortuna or the others small village normally they organized parties for the community with real live latino music during all night and is for all ages.

Happy new year...

You'll find plenty to do in La Fortuna so don't worry! Just go to the main park and chat with the locals...you'll have a great time! And yes, the discos (El Establo & the Sound Academy) are a very young crowd (I'm 41 and I felt like a grandma there)! :-) If you want something mellow like having a nice dinner then you'd need to make a reservation (like for Don Rufino's for example) but other than that just have fun! :-) Just be careful of all the fireworks!!! :-)

Gingerbread in Neuvo Arenal has the best parties and food bar none!
