Despite all challenges, Jessica Gallant was able to hike Rincon de la Vieja. Not to the top, since there has been serious activity on the top, but to pristine waterfalls and through trails.
According to The Edmonton Journal 29 Team Diabetes members had raised more than $228,000. That is a lot of money. We are really happy for the Canadian Diabetes Association.
According to the article, Jessica mentioned “It didn’t matter. I had no idea I could hike six hours on rugged trails with two new hips and a wonky knee.”
Rincon de la Vieja Volcano is a magic place. We are proud that Jessica chose this destination for her challenge.

Instead of ziplining through the trees and crossing swing bridges on the Caribbean/rainforesty side of the country, however, we were able to go whole hog on the Pacific/dry forest side in the Rincón de la Vieja Volcano National Park of the Guanacaste region, where canopying combines with ziplining, rappeling, rock climbing, canyoneering and…….. as it was mentioned by haunted.com
This is one of the most popular tours at the Hacienda since it has a bit on everything, traversing on trees, traversing in the canyon, up and down, on ropes, on the wall………
This tour is open every day from 8 AM to 5 PM. Rincon de la Vieja is a and active volcano close to the beaches in Guanacaste.
Book your next trip with Jet Blue from NYC directo to Liberia. Liberia is the main city in Guanacaste, Costa Rica’s province where the coast meets the jungle and the volcanoes.
Jet Blue added this new location with 4 new direct flights per week. Liberia is home to the new Daniel Oduber Quiros International Airport (LIR) in the country’s Guanacaste region, a growing haven for ecotourists and surfers. In fact, during the first month of service, JetBlue will waive baggage fees for travelers who check surfboards.
Some people like to fly around the country, specially if the travel plan is not to do stops along the way. Flying makes it more convenient, since it takes only 45 minutes from San José international airport Juan Santa Maria (SJO) to Daniel Oduber International Airport in Liberia (LIR).
As you fly into Guanacaste, one of the nice things to see is the view of the Central Volcanic range, and the Guanacaste Volcanic range. Majestic volcanoes like Poas, Miravalles and Rincon de la Vieja can be seen on the west. As passengers get close to Liberia, they can also observe the Nicoya Gulf on the east.
Before coming to Hacienda Guachipelin I had only heard about zip lining and Canopy. So I didn’t really know what I was getting myself into when the guides started giving us information about the technique. Since I’m a little bit scared of heights this was really going to be a challenge for me and I could feel the excitement in my stomach.
To my surprise I was not scared at all, the guides treated us very well during the entire tour and I felt very secure. I was the last one of the people in the tour and I could hear a woman in front of me giving a shout of excitement, when I got there I understood why. I was going to go down a slide and then continue straight in to the forest. The feeling of relief when you leave the platform is indescribable and the fact that you do this surrounded by rich vegetation, various birds and reptiles is just amazing.
We continued to the canyon where you can choose if you want to go rock climbing or not. The next cable was going to take us thru the canyon with the wild river underneath us. This is where I did something I never in a million years thought I would do, the guide convinced me to go upside down! When I reached the next platform I could breathe again, and I was so proud of myself. Then it was time to do a Tarzan swing over the river, another great experience.
When I reached the last platform and we walked back to the Adventure centre all I could think about was – when can I do this again?
