Hiking in Rincon de la Vieja National Park, Las Pailas Trail

Hiking in the Rincon de la Vieja National Park is a must-do activity while you are staying at Hotel Hacienda Guachipelin. See our Hiking in Rincon de la Vieja National Park & Oropendula Waterfall tour, and the Horseback riding tour to Rincon de la Vieja National Park for more fun options.

The Las Pailas section of the Rincon de la Vieja National Park is located very near Hacienda Guachipelin’s ranch. From the hotel, we will walk 45 minutes on a picturesque forest trail to the national park entrance. 

The Las Pailas area, which means “the Cauldrons” in Spanish, spectacularly shows off the awesome power of the Rincón de la Vieja Volcano, the largest and most active volcano in Guanacaste, Costa Rica. Steam and sulfur pour out of yellow and rust-colored ground at natural fumaroles. Clay and coffee-colored pools boil with hot volcanic water. Smooth gray volcanic mud bubbles and explodes in large pits. It’s an experience like no other volcano in Costa Rica.

With our bilingual naturalist guide, you will hike the Las Pailas loop trail 2.5 miles (3.5 km) through dry tropical forest to see the best views of the volcano, incredible nature, volcanic activity and wildlife. The park is home to more than 300 bird species, and other animals like armadillos, collared peccaries, iguanas, snakes, white-nosed coatis, and white-faced, howler and spider monkeys. When we finish in the park, our day tour in Guanacaste ends with the walk back to Hacienda Guachipelin.
