About Hacienda Guachipelin Hotel

Adventure beckons at Hotel Hacienda Guachipelín, positioned at the foot of the Rincón de la Vieja Volcano in Guanacaste, Costa Rica. We are an eco-tourism hotel and an actual working horse and cattle ranch, celebrating the Guanacaste region’s cowboy heritage in the heart of the savanna.

The Adventure Park in Rincon de la Vieja Volcano. Natural hot springs, jungle forests, pristine waterfalls, and bubbling volcanic mud pools are just some of the many attractions you can enjoy during a stay with us. Hacienda Guachipelín Hotel is the ideal place where to stay in Rincon de la Vieja for an active vacation. Adventurers will thrill to swinging like Tarzan on the many cables and rappel ropes of the Canyon Canopy Tour, or bouncing down the rapids of Rio Negro on a Tubing Adventure. Ride Costa Rican ranch horses to natural volcanic thermal springs or spectacular waterfall pools. Transform yourself on our “cowboy for a day” tour. Have fun bird watching, hiking trails, and hiking to the active craters of the Rincón de la Vieja Volcano.

Since 1985, Hacienda Guachipelín has been hosting visitors from all over the world, while they enjoy the natural beauty of our ranch and the bordering Rincón de la Vieja National Park.

Rincon del Vieja Volcano National Park, Guanacaste Costa Rica

Rincón de la Vieja National Park surrounds two impressive volcanoes – the active Rincón de la Vieja and the dormant Santa María. Located 15.5 miles (25 km) northeast of Liberia in Guanacaste, Rincón de la Vieja is the largest volcano in the country’s northwest, and features a 15-kilometer-wide (9 miles) caldera. The park’s 24,800 acres are split into two sections, Las Pailas and Santa María. Las Pailas (“The Cauldrons”) includes the active volcano whose name means “Corner of the Old Woman”, along with fumaroles, mud pots, steam vents, and a number of waterfalls.

How to get here:

From Liberia: From the main intersection on the Pan-American Highway in Liberia (you'll notice three gas stations and Burger King / McDonald’s), drive 3 miles (5 km) north, toward the Nicaraguan border. Turn right at the entrance to Curubande / Rincón de la Vieja National Park – Las Pailas sector. It is 8.6 miles (14 km) to the village of Curubande, and another 1 mile (1.7 km) to the gate at Hacienda Guachipelín.(See Map)
