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.

Es muy agradable poder contar con un volcan activo en la zona que hasta la fecha no representa un peligro para la zona. El Volcan Rincon de la Vieja ha entrado en una fase activa despues de 12 años de casi ninguna actividad.
El volcan Rincon de la Vieja es el único volcan activo en la cordillera volcanica de Guanacaste. Este volcan se ubica a 25 kilometros de la ciudad de Liberia . Ha tenido periodos de actividad fuerte registrados entre 1966 y 1967, en 1983, en 1991 y en 1995.
Como prevención, el Ovsicori instaló tres nuevos sismógrafos en los alrededores del macizo para el monitoreo más detallado de la actividad sísmica-volcánica. Esto según salio publicado en el Diario La Nación.
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?

This is a very special week in Costa Rica. We celebrate the 2nd of August the day of our Saint Patron “La Virgen de los Angeles“.
Costa Rica is very Catholic. As a matter of fact, Costa Rica is declared Catholic by its constitution.
The leyend about the Virgin say that on August 2 of 1635, a small stone sculpture was found on top of a stone by Juana Pereira. She was a poor mestizo lady that every morning woke up to collect fire wood. With great joy Juana picked up the treasure, never imagining that five times more would be found in the same place. The image disappeared from drawers, chests, and even the parish tabernacle, to return to the rock where she had been found. Then everyone understood that the Virgin wanted a place of prayer there where he could give his love to the humble and the poor.
In August, the Basilica is subject of an extensive pilgrimage and visitation. About 1.5 million believers throughout the country and many from out of the country join the celebration. Lots of them do a 22 kilometer walk to the basilica during the Romeria.
La Virgen de los Angeles was declared patroness of the Americas by Pope John Paul II. The Sanctuary is located in the community of Los Angeles in Cartago.
Many miracles have occurred through the intercession of the Virgin. Read this article that illustrates
