Tour Description - Set out on horseback like a Sabanero (Costa Rica cowboy) or come by vehicle (your option). Only this side of the volcano, Rincon de la Vieja, is in the jungle rainforest, has the breathtaking blue volcanic river, Penjamo and natural mineral “green” hot springs.

You’ll take a step back into time, riding past locals, who are also on horse. View the homes, chickens and cows to witness a simple, wholesome way of life, living off the land. Travel along dirt paths, through pastures and plantations. At our destination, disembark at the gorgeous Grand Waterfall for a well earned dip in the pools and under the many falls.

Afterward, its time to commence your hike into lush rainforest parkland, along paths leading to more swimming opportunities, past many cascading waterfalls, a natural waterslide and finally, to the unique and breathtaking, blue volcanic river, Rio Penjamo.

Take dips into a series of incomparable waterfalls. See first-hand, where minerals leach through the river bottom and into the water, causing the water color to turn blue. While hiking, look out for colorful highland birds which are difficult to see elsewhere.

Upon exiting the park, your horses will be waiting, readied for the ride back to Blue River Resort & Hot Springs.
