Set out on horseback like a Sabanero (Costa Rica cowboy) / come by safari truck. In Guanacaste natural hot springs, blue rivers and rainforest can only be found here on the north side of the volcano, Rincon de la Vieja. The Grand Waterfalls are a sight to behold.
Riding past locals, on horse, moving their animals and working their farms, feels like having stepped back in time. Their homes, chickens and cows offer a glimpse into a wholesome way of life, living off the land. We’ll ride along dirt roads, through pastures and plantations and disembark at the gorgeous Grand Waterfalls for a well-earned dip in the pools with time to explore.
Afterward we’ll hike into rainforest jungle, 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 Pénjamo.
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, be on the lookout for colorful highland birds which are difficult to see elsewhere.
