What You Can Expect
Prepare for an active morning in the cool climate of a Costa Rican mountain rainforest.
You will be picked up from your hotel in the Guanacaste area at 7 am approx.
First, see for yourself the amazing dynamic of the Rincon de la Vieja Volcano. This National Park is home to one of the most active volcanoes with fumaroles activity, that is the largest in the Guanacaste mountain range. On this 2-hour hike, you’ll see the energy that this sleeping giant liberates. You will hike down a short trail that takes you towards the steamy sulfurous water ponds, a smaller volcano, little mud pots, then the bubbling water lagoons that are naturally heated.
Then you will visit the Vida Aventura Park, where you will?enjoy a typical Costa Rican lunch, choosing from a variety of dishes such as chicken, rice, beans, and salad.
After lunch, you will choose between two adventure activities: zipline or horseback riding.
For the ziplining option, your experienced guide will provide training on how to ride the zip line. Then, secure your harness and take off through the canyon, gliding easily around the treetops along seven cables.
For the horseback riding your guide will help you?mount a horse for a trail-riding experience along a tropical forest drive, learning about the diverse flora and fauna as you cross streams and grass pastures. Keep an eye out for two active volcanoes, Rincon de la Vieja and Miravalles, and admire the spectacular panoramic views along the way.
When you?ve completed the zip lining or horseback ride activity,? head to the soothing part of your tour ? a thermal mud bath and hot springs spa in gorgeous natural surroundings.
Wearing a bathing suit, lather the soft volcanic mud on your skin and face, making a natural mineral mask, and layout comfortably until it dries in the sun. Finally, dip into a geothermal pool, washing away the clay and soothing any sore muscles as you relax more deeply into the thermal pools.
After this, is back to your hotel.
