This 34,595 acres national park is a volcanic massif of which the burnt-out Santa Maria (6,255 ft.) and the gently active Rincón de la Vieja (6,220 ft.) that last erupted in November 1995, are the highest volcanoes. Experience the fascinating fauna and flora that changes from wet and dry to cloud forest; geysers, boiling mud pools, fumaroles and hot sulfur springs will take you into the magic world of Rincón de la Vieja!

Your Itinerary:

Day 1:
In the morning you leave San José northbound on the Interamericana to Cañas. During a 2 hours scenic raft trip on Rio Corobicí, you will be able to observe lots of birds, monkeys and iguanas in the bordering forests. There will be refreshments during the trip. In the afternoon you continue to Liberia, from there you take a gravel road to a rustic mountain lodge at the slopes of the volcano. Overnight stay at Hacienda Lodge Guachipelin***.

Day 2:
After breakfast, you begin a hike in the national park for about 2 hours through wet forest where you will cross several times different mountain rivers, over dry and hot plateaus with little vegetation (páramo) finally reaching the „Blue Lake" whose natural basin is nourished by a beautiful waterfall, the turquoise-blue water is most inviting for a refreshing swim. After a picnic lunch we continue our hike down to the park's main attractions: bubbling mud pools, pits of boiling hot water, vapor geysers and fumaroles (deep holes that emit sulfurous vapor) giving us a very impressive idea of a volcano's natural power. We then return in time to the lodge for our dinner. Overnight stay at Hacienda Lodge Guachipelin***.

Day 3:
After breakfast start your ride back to San José or to your next destination.

Optional: Exciting Canopy Tour through the Kazm Cañon, about 2 hours US $ 45 p.p.
