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.

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.

This is my favorite place in the area. This big 40 meter high waterfall can be found in Rincon de la vieja National park, the name of it is Cangreja Waterfall. To get here you have to spend about two hours walking. In some places the track is a little bit difficult but it is definitely worth the effort. On the way you can see both forest and more open areas and you also get some good views. On this track it is definitely possible to see some animals such as monkeys, snakes and many birds. Before I went to this waterfall people kept telling me about this place and when I finally got there I was not disappointed. I did the hike alone and I had no problems finding the way, the path is very easy to follow. This is really the perfect place for a swim, the water is clear blue and not cold at all. Please, don’t forget to bring your bathing suit, you will need it!
After a couple of great months in the hotel it’s time for me to go back to Sweden. My internship is now coming to an end so this is my last article. I hope you enjoyed reading about the Hacienda and my time here.
Pura Vida, Camilla

Just a quick note to explain about Rincon de la Vieja National Park, it is the most visited national park in Guanacaste, Costa Rica’s northern province. It’s main attraction is Las Pailas Trail, with lots of volcanic activity, similar to what you would see in Yellowstone.
Just a short hike away from the hotel you will find Las Chorreras waterfall. This is a place that I recommend for everyone who makes a trip to Rincon de la vieja. The trail to the waterfall is a very easy walk. If you are lucky you may see some animals on your way down there such as snakes, birds and the blue morpho, the blue butterfly. Normally I don’t want to be around snakes at all but this day I would have given anything to catch a big wild boa on a photo. That would have been a really good story to tell my friends about. On the other hand I got to see the morpho, probably the prettiest butterfly I have ever seen with its bright blue colors.
Las Chorreras waterfall meets the Rio Blanco (the white river) and the visibility of the water here is just amazing. They tell me that the special blue and green color of the water comes from minerals from the volcano. From a big rock you have a great view over the waterfall and this is a perfect spot for photos. Next time I go to this waterfall I will bring lunch with me for a picnic outside and the most important thing, I will bring my bikini for a swim next to the waterfall.
