Rio Negro Hot Springs

Includes: Admission Lunch and local guide.
Difficulty Level: Easy
What to bring: Swimsuit, towel and change of clothes.


Mineral-rich hot springs have rejuvenating and therapeutic properties treasured for centuries by people all over the world. When you visit Hotel Hacienda Guachipelin and Rincon de la Vieja, you must experience the incredible hot springs. Surrounded by thick forest, the crystal clear river flows through 10 man-made pools we have created to capture the steaming mineral-rich water. You access pools (of varying temperatures) on both sides of the river by two hanging bridges. Heated volcanic clay is available to smooth all over like a “spa body masque”.

After it dries, wash it off with a cool shower or jump in the river before soaking again in the hot pools. The complete relaxation is pure bliss. Beautiful and relaxing, the volcanic hot springs at Hacienda Guachipelin bubble up in the Rio Negro (“Black River”), heated naturally by the Rincon de la Vieja Volcano, is the largest and most active volcano in Guanacaste, Costa Rica.

Duration: Half Day
Includes: Transportation from Hacienda Guachipelin, entrance fee, box lunch and bilingual guide.
Difficulty Level: Hard
What to bring: Comfortable clothes, closed toed shoes or hiking boots.


The only way to get to this waterfall is by hiking 3 miles (5 km) into the national park. Along the trail you might see wildlife like white-faced, howler or spider monkeys, white-nosed coatis, armadillos, Central American agoutis, iguanas, and birds like the Blue-crowned Motmot or Emerald Toucanet.

Spilling 130 feet (40 meters) in a white ribbon of water out of the green forest, the Cangreja Waterfall forms a clear blue pool at its base. Dissolved copper minerals from the volcano give the water its celestial blue color. Our bilingual naturalist guide will bring along a picnic lunch for you to enjoy by the waterfall.
