Take a look at this link for a map showing the 2 entrances to the park.
Thank you thank you. This is very helpful.
My pleasure-you can hire the services of a guide at the ranger station and it is well worth it. You will see so much more!
Have a great trip.
Rincon de la vieja National Park has differente entrances, being the most popular and with more things to see, the Pailas Entrance or the Pailas Sector, in this entrance you can walk and see the hot mud bubbling, fumaroles, different waterfalls and you can hike to the crater, this last one is long and requires a good condition, also it may be closed by the park ranges due to bad weather or excesive wind. If you like what I just said, then, the closest hotels to this entrance are Hacienda Guachipelín and Rincón de la Vieja Lodge, at Hacienda Guachipelin you can hire a naturalist guide to walk with you. Many other adventure activities are found in the area. One of the nicest areas of Costa Rica
