Tubing, zip line in the canyon, horseback ride and lunch are part of the One Day Adventure Pass. Canyoning is an extra on the package or it can be done as another tour.

Are you staying at a hotel in Liberia? If so, you might want to take a tour including shuttle. I think a taxi is about $50 one way.

You may take a Taxi from Liberia... It is not that far east from downtown. There might by a public transportation to Rincon de la Vieja... I saw some going there. There are plenty of small towns and hamlets just before the park. Also the electrical power company has a Geothermal generation station that employs many people. Hacienda Guachipelin is separate and independent of the national parkBeing that it is a national park, there is an entrance fee. Which is very reasonable. If you are 55 or over fee is waived. Mine was. There is a snack store at the entrance.
