Immerse yourself in the natural beauty of Costa Rica exploring one of the hiking trails in the Rincón de la Vieja Volcano National Park: enjoy a trek surrounded by lush rainforest, waterfalls and volcanoes!

Hiking in Rincón de la Vieja National Park

On the morning of your hike, you'll be picked up from your hotel ready for a day of adventure. From there, you'll be taken to one of the most beautiful areas of Guanacaste: delving deep into the tropical rainforest that covers Costa Rica, you'll feel like you've entered another world.

Your destination for the day is the Rincón de la Vieja Volcano National Park, a nature reserve and World Heritage Site spread over 34,000 acres, and home to two volcanoes and more than thirty rivers and streams. What better place to experience this country's magical natural landscapes

Embark on your hike along one of the park's trails, from which you'll have the unique opportunity to see the plumes of smoke emitted by the rocks in this volcanic region. Do you know how hot it can get in areas of the national park? Your guide will reveal all during the trek!

During your hike, you'll reach a spectacular waterfall hidden in the rainforest, and in this mystical spot your guide will tell you the story of how this park got its name...  Rincón de la Vieja, the name of the volcano, means "The Old Woman's Corner", and it comes from a local legend about a girl whose lover was thrown into the volcanic crater by her father and who spent the rest of her days living on the mountain! 

At the end of your trek, you'll be treated to a well-deserved lunch and a delicious coffee surrounded by the beautiful jungle, before making the return journey to your hotel.
