The Rincon de la Vieja National Park is a must-see for any traveler visiting Costa Rica! With its experience largely centered on the volcano and volcanic activity located there, it is as educational as it is beautiful, and fun for the whole family. Over 34000 acres of mountainous forest trails and waterfalls await you on this protected forest in Guanacaste filled with all the exotic wildlife and impossibly lush flora you´ve come to expect in Costa Rica. White-faced monkeys, kinkajou, sloths, and even jaguars and pumas call this protected land home; so keep your eyes peeled for some once-in-a-lifetime wild animal sightings!
What is more important is that you experience Rincon de la Vieja with a knowledgeable naturalist guide who will ensure you get the most bang for your buck. During our Rincon de la Vieja Volcano hike we will also see hot springs, steam vents, smelly sulfur springs and fumaroles. Our friendly and knowledgeable guide will be happy to talk more about how the volcanic activity creates these changes in the earth´s surface, and what that means to the ecosystem as a whole.
Before heading back to your hotel, our guides will stop off in Liberia, Guanacaste´s most historically famous colonial town more fondly referred to as "La Ciudad Blanca" due to white construction materials used to construct the buildings and streets. Even the people in Liberia are known for wearing all white clothing as a means to deflect the heat. You will learn a bit about its important history as well as get a chance to do a little souvenir shopping in the city famous for its indigenous pottery before heading back to your resort.
A lovely break from the heat of Guanacaste´s beaches, the cool mountain air and higher elevation of Rincon de la Vieja National Park is a great way to experience another side to Costa Rica´s diverse and beautiful landscape, while giving your vacation a change of pace. This family-friendly tour is popular and it fills up fast, so be sure to reserve your Rincon de la Vieja National Park tour before it is too late!
