Rincon de La Vieja National Park, Province of Guanacaste

4.1
#3 of 20 in Nature in Province of Guanacaste
Volcano National Park
Explore the volcanic geological features and tropical forests of Rincon de La Vieja National Park, a 14,084 hectare (34,800 acre) national park. Two active and one dormant volcano dominate the landscape here, and provide the main focal points for a range of hikes. The park protects areas of montane and dwarf cloud forest, as well as an extensive diversity of wildlife, including sloths, tapirs, pumas, jaguars, and howler and spider monkeys. Note that crater climbs on the two active volcanoes may not be allowed at the time of your visit; check in advance. In that case, surrounding fumaroles and hot springs add more than enough excitement to the adventure.

  • Loved this tour. It was one of the best during our 9 day trip to Costa Rica. The area was beautiful and the volcanic activity was breath taking.  more »
  • We didn't have loads of time but we did get to hike to four waterfalls (free) and do the hot springs/mud baths ($20). It was STUPID GORGEOUS out there.  more »
