Hacienda Guachipelín has been hosting visitors from all over the world since 1985, letting them enjoy the natural beauty of the ranch and the bordering Rincón de la Vieja National Park.
The Rincón de la Vieja crater has had at least eight periods of intense volcanic activity, and still bubbles and steams.
This all-day adventure is considered by many to be one of the best tours the province of Guanacaste has to offer.
This action-packed tour delivers four exhilarating activities in just one day! Get ready for a zipline canopy tour, scenic horseback ride, river tubing excursion, and volcanic mud bath. You will also see beautiful waterfalls.
Start with an adrenaline-fueled canopy tour. After a safety briefing, strap on your harness and fly through the treetops and over a turbulent river. You will go down 12 zipline cables, 24 platforms and 2 climbing walls. You will have a Via Ferrata (cable) rappel to tackle, as well as hanging bridges and a Tarzan swing.
Next up is a 45-minute rain forest horseback riding adventure through the rain forest.
Arrive at the Victoria Waterfall where yet another adventure awaits, river tubing. Hop into your tube and set sail down the crystal clear Rio Negro for about three miles (five kilometers). The guides will be riding down with you to ensure your safety.
On dry land, savor a freshly-prepared buffet lunch before relaxing at the Río Negro Hot Springs, where mineral-rich waters are naturally heated by the Rincón de la Vieja Volcano. Bask in multiple pools and allow the crystal clear, all natural, soothing mineral waters to rejuvenate your body. Relax and try the volcanic “mud bath.” Savor the serenity brought on by the hot spring water.
