Rincón de La Vieja National Park

This 34,800 acre (14,084 ha) national park is home to an intriguing combination of volcanic geological wonders and untouched tropical forests that span six life zones. Rincon de la Vieja (6217 ft, 1895 m), is the main attraction of this tour and  is a smooth cinder cone volcano, comprised of nine adjoining craters, one being the Santa Maria.

Volcano Santa Maria (Volcan Santa Maria), with the highest peak at 6,385 feet (1916 m), is a collection of volcanic peaks that are the most active in the Guanacaste Mountains (Cordillera de Guanacaste).  The majority of the volcanic activity occurred during the latter half of the 1960's, however, the Von Seebach Crater is still currently active, continuously venting steam.
You will also experience seeing the beautiful waterfall, fumaroles, hot stones, crystallized sulfur, and other scenic beauties.  

We recommend a poncho, bug spray, sunscreen, a hat, hiking shoes or tennis shoes, pants, and good health condition.
This tour includes air conditioned transportation, a bilingual tour guide, a driver, the national park entrance fee, hiking trails, a volcanic area trail, a waterfall trail, and lunch.
