If you don’t have a car, you’ll need to either take a cab or go on an organized tour if you want to visit the hot springs or view the volcano. La Fortuna has tons of taxis (you can flag one down practically anywhere, or dial tel. 2479-9605), and a line of them is always ready and waiting along the main road beside the central park. Another alternative is to rent a car when you get here. Alamo (tel. 2479-9090) has an office in downtown La Fortuna.
Sorry there's no Uber of Lyft yet in this part of Costa Rica.
