What to expect
  • After morning pickup at your Guanacaste coast hotel, travel by van roughly 1 hour to reach Rincon de la Vieja National Park, located 10 miles (16 km) northeast of Liberia. Notice the landscape and vegetation change as you approach the slopes of the park’s active volcano. Lace up your hiking shoes and venture into the tropical dry forest and primary forest that make up the park’s ecosystem, learning about the unique features of each from your guide. Throughout the 2-hour hike, see evidence of the area’s volcanic activity as you pass steaming fumaroles, bubbling mud pits, and sulphuric ponds. Keep an eye out also for the many wild residents that call the park home, such as toucans, agoutis, white-nosed coatis, spider and howler monkeys, and butterflies. When you complete the hiking circuit, travel back to Liberia and reward your efforts with a hearty casado lunch plate featuring rice, beans, plantains, and meat or vegetarian fare at a city restaurant. Enjoy a bit of free time to browse local markets for souvenirs or stop for a coffee break (own expense) before returning to your hotel in the afternoon.
