La Fortuna is a rural city located in San Carlos, in the province of Alajuela, Costa Rica. La Fortuna received its name after the eruption of the Arenal Volcano Tour in 1968. La Fortuna was originally called "El Borio" before the day of the eruption. In 1968, the Arenal Volcano erupted to the east, killing all in its path, including two villages. El Borio (La Fortuna) was located on the west side of the volcano and was untouched. After the eruption of the volcano, El Borio was renamed "La Fortuna", which means "the fortunate", referring to the towns luckiness during the eruption.
Arenal is often cited by scientists as being in the top ten or top 20 of the world's most active volcanoes.
