Tenorio National Park, Buena Vista

Featuring four volcanic peaks and two craters, Tenorio National Park offers numerous hiking trails passing lagoons, waterfalls, and rivers. As you walk, keep your eyes peeled for tapirs, ocelots, and pumas. Observe the park's river, colored light blue thanks to the abundant emissions of volcanic sulfur. Stroll around geysers and thermal hot springs before you reach the peak with a panoramic view, or devote all your time to exploring some of 130 sq km (50 sq mi) of swimming areas and picnic spots. The park's amenities include first aid stations, restrooms, and access to clean drinking water.

  • A great journey, the trail is very nice, had some mud and the raging river that morning had been raining. But it was worth the grief porla view to the volcano and the sighting of a morpho butterfly. Very advisable to wear clothes and shoes that can stain.

  • An amazing ride. We did the trail that leads to the blue waterfall. We had difficult because it was fairly waterlogged but the place is worth. After the blue waterfall got to the place where the waters are stained and are well marked the two colors: Brown and blue. We also visited the Blue Lagoon, on whose shores are volcanic bubbles coming to the surface. As if this were not enough the path through the jungle fauna and flora can be observed. In our case we could see almost at the start of a sloth.
