Full description
Experience the natural beauty of Costa Rica on a one-day nature tour in Rincon de la Vieja National Park. Hike the Las Pailas Trail in the park to discover the raw nature and amazing wildlife. With a bilingual naturalist guide, walk the 3.5-kilometer, circular path through the tropical forest to enjoy the best views of the volcano. Walk to the mirador to see the Rincón de la Vieja and Santa María Volcanoes, and beyond to the Pacific Ocean. Trek to a stunning waterfall that descends into a beautiful sky-blue pool. Stop here for a cooling swim, or to enjoy the lovely surroundings.  Afterwards, rejuvenate yourself in the Rio Negro Hot Springs and Mud Baths.

Rincon de la vieja is superior than Manuel Antonio. During our stay there was say toucans, dozens of monkeys, many iguanas and we were lucky enough to see a boa constrictor suffocating an iguana just a few feet from one of the watch points. Some comments here say that they didn't need a guide to see what they wanted to see but we were happy to have paid for one. We were lucky to have Edouard. He is passionate and very knowlagable. The guide knew where to take us according to what we wanted to see and saw everything way before us and was always able to point us in the right direction. He took good care of us and always wanted to show us more. The tour and the day spent there was by far our best investment of our whole trip to Costa-Rica.
