beautiful park! the fun begins when you take the dirt road to get to the park (you really need a 4WD), the surroundings are gorgeous and you drive right through the rainforest. The park is awsome, cause it's pretty wild, with dirt tracks and some cool wild animals around. It's a tough hike, but truly worth it. The Lago Azul is one of the most beautiful things I've ever seen.

My husband and I had a rental car and decided to take this trip- we stayed at the Riu in Guanacaste. On maps, you would think this ride would be about 1.5 hours. It was easy to find however the last 6 miles of this trip is up a extremely rough dirt/rock/boulder road. This one part of the ride alone took us over an hour to get through. We had a 2-wheel drive rental and we did make it, but would not try this again unless you are in an SUV. I stress that. Once you arrive, all employees/rangers did not speak much English at all. The hike and attractions were beautiful and made the ride worth it. There are not herds of tourists at this park- it made it feel more remote and really felt like a true rainforest. It was very nice to get into the natural hot springs! Rio Celeste was beautiful, and the waterfall was breath-taking! Our rental car will never be the same again after this ride, but thankfully the rental agency didn't notice anything wrong so not extra charges were inflicted :)

White water river rafting down Rio Tenorio was thrilling and fun for our whole family! We booked our trip through Anywhere Costa Rica -- an excellent excursions firm. Enjoy!

It was a very good hiking, it was bit harder than usually as in low season they are doing some maintenance in the stairs that go to the waterfalls. They built an alternative route, harder but funny, almost no one around and it was greatrelaxing for a while next to the great cascade. The "Rio Celeste" hike was easier and very nice too, the water wasn't so blue as in most of the picture (I hate photoshop, sure they use it), but it was still very interesting to see.
3 or 4 hours are enough for this trail, absolutely worth

One of the Best Things we have Seen in costa rica !! Take the entrance near by Upola. There is a short way over stones. you can see everything. Hot springs. Waterfall. Blue water etc. If it was raining before rent boots! We dit it and it was perfect. Don't miss the big tree which is on the way maybe 1 1/2 km away from the antrance. Also the Sodo in front of the entrance is very good. Nearby you can rent rooms. like 4 km from the parc (casita)Just wonderful. They make excellent breakfast!! And it is clean. Price is 30dollars! We stayed there two nights so we could enter the parc early. We will definitely come again!! Don't forget to ask for fresh pineapple !!!ask the owner for a tour! He knows everything!
