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. 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 – Arrival:

Pick up at your city hotel in San José and transfer northbound on the Interamericana arriving in the early afternoon at a rustic mountain lodge at the foot of the volcano hills. Overnight stay at Hacienda Guachipelin***.

Day 2 - Kazm Cañon Canopy Tour:

Today you start your first adventure: an exciting tour "flying" through the Kazm Cañon that has several platforms and traverse cables suspended inside. The tour itself starts from a boardwalk built along the edge of the cliff walls and includes 3 boardwalks, 10 platforms, a "Tarzan Swing", several wall climbs and 5 traverses. You will slide off the diving board and into the great abyss of the Rio Blanco, a tributary of the Rio Colorado Canyon. The afternoon is at your disposal: Relax at the lodge's swimming pool or visit the nearby National Park for optional excursions. Overnight stay at Hacienda Guachipelin***.

Day 3 - Hike to the Crater:

Ascent to Rincón de la Vieja's crater (about 6 hours); 3,940 ft. of height are to be covered. The highlight of this strenuous full day hike is not the crater itself but the different life zones resulting from the changes in altitude that we cross. On our way we will have a picnic lunch. Overnight stay at Hacienda Guachipelin***.

Day 4 – Departure:

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