Rincon de la Vieja Volcano Hike

Rincon de la Vieja Volcano Hike is the perfect adventure in Guanacaste to discover an active volcano. Here, you will be able to observe sulfur steam, boiling mud, acid lagoons, and hot springs. Also, waterfalls, fantastic flora, and wildlife such as monkeys, toucans, tapirs, and others can be found at the Rincon de la Vieja National Park.

Rincon de la Vieja Volcano Hike will take you through easy forest trails and visit the boiling mud, sulfur, steam vents, and fumaroles. Also, visit lagoons and impressive waterfalls where you can swim and relax after the hike. Rincón de la Vieja Volcano stands 1,916 meters (6,286 ft) above sea level.

You can find abundant flora and fauna like toucans, howler and white-faced monkeys, coatimundis, raccoons, and more. The Rincón de la Vieja Volcano is set within the Rincón de la Vieja National Park, which spans over 34,000 acres (12,759 ha) and helps protect both montane forests and dwarf cloud forests.

Later, you will be able to refresh yourself by visiting the amazing Oropendola Waterfall, located just a few meters out of the park, where you can enjoy the pristine waters that start running on the slopes of the volcano. The access to the main crater is closed because of the risk of dying because of the vapors and pyroclastic eruptions that have occurred at any moment since 2011.

Rincon de la Vieja Volcano Hike Tour also offers you the option of enjoying the natural hot springs, taking a mud bath, and relaxing in nature. This service is under request.
