Since La Fortuna is the largest town in this region, it offers all the necessities of daily life. Unlike many tourist destinations, most of the businesses here are owned by Ticos, which helps keep the town’s identity intact. La Fortuna offers well-equipped medical and dental clinics, as well as emergency care. There is an incredible farmer’s market called Sarchesenos, as well as two Super Christian supermarkets and a Mega Super and Super Rovil grocery stores. In addition to laundry services, dry cleaning, banking, salons and barber shops, and other day-to-day services, you’ll also find galleries offering hand-thrown pottery, hand-woven textiles, intricate wood carvings, and framed rainforest scenes.
