On days like these in the sizzling Costa Rica summer, the best way to cool off is on a water adventure at Hacienda Guachipelin.

From river tubing to waterfall rappelling and swimming in refreshing waterfall pools, Hacienda Guachipelin has plenty of fun water activities to enjoy on your Costa Rica vacation.

After your adventure, you can relax in the mineral rich, volcanic hot springs of Rio Negro, or enjoy luxury spa services at the Simbiosis Spa beside the bubbling Colorado River. The hotel’s swimming pool, filled with natural spring water, is another cool place to hang out.

Here’s a preview of the fun water adventures available at Hacienda Guachipelin, a favorite hotel in Guanacaste at the foot of the Rincon de la Vieja Volcano. It’s time to enjoy Costa Rica summer!

River Tubing

You’ll enjoy non-stop excitement riding the watery rollercoaster of the Rio Negro (Black River) on the river tubing adventure. In your individual inner tube raft, you’ll splash down 5 km (3 miles) of small rapids and quiet pools in this crystal-clear river.

Special river tube rafts are designed with handles and protective bottoms, and you will wear rafting helmets and lifejackets. Guides ensure your safety along the trip. The Rio Negro Tubing Adventure is included in Hacienda Guachipelin’s One Day Adventure Pass.

Experienced guides assist you with professional equipment and safety gear.

Swim in Waterfall Pools

There’s nothing quite so emblematic of visiting the tropics – and, for sure, Costa Rica – as swimming in a beautiful jade green or turquoise-colored pool at the base of a waterfall amid lush tropical plants.

Hacienda Guachipelin offers hiking and horseback riding tours to four tropical waterfalls located on the hotel’s ranch or nearby at the Rincon de la Vieja National Park: the Oropendula WaterfallChorreras WaterfallsVictoria Waterfall and the Cangreja Waterfall.

Beautiful and relaxing in a natural setting, the volcanic hot springs at Rio Negro flow through 10 man-made pools surrounded by thick tropical forest. A visit to the Rio Negro Hot Springs is included in both the One Day Adventure Pass and the One Day Nature Pass combo tours.
