Get Out of Your Comfort Zone at Hacienda Guachipelin in Costa Rica


Get out of your comfort zone on one-of-a-kind Costa Rica adventure tours at Hacienda Guachipelin by the Rincon de la Vieja Volcano.

When was the last time you felt the thrill of not knowing what was going to happen next?

If you never leave your comfort zone, maybe it’s been a while.

There’s some fun excitement in that mix of anticipation and anxiety that flips your stomach and makes your heart race. Maybe it’s time to bring that feeling back into your life.

On vacation in Costa Rica, you’re guaranteed to revive the thrill of your life on any one of dozens of adventure tours at Hacienda Guachipelin by Rincon de la Vieja Volcano.

Stand on the edge of a high platform looking out over tall treetops across a wide canyon, knowing that you are about to fly through the air connected only by a harness and pulley equipment to steel cables (even if the cables can support at least 5,000 lbs. of weight), and I dare you to not have an adrenaline rush.

The Canyon Canopy Tour at Hacienda Guachipelin will have your heart racing as you speed down zip lines, pretend to be Tarzan on rope swings, cross hanging rope bridges high above a rushing river, and rappel down (then climb back up) a 65-foot rock wall.

Let go of all control splashing through wild river rapids sitting in a big inflatable doughnut-like tube, and I promise you that you’ll be giddy with exhilaration. The watery rollercoaster of the Rio Negro Tubing Adventure at Hacienda Guachipelin is full of excitement. And, actually, the adventure guides make sure the experience stays safe.

Tell anyone to jump off a cliff and they’ll think twice. Especially if that cliff involves a powerful, gushing waterfall. That’s the gripping adventure of Hacienda Guachipelin’s Waterfalls Canyoning Tour, where you rappel down majestic waterfalls and finish with a splash into the pool below.

The electrifying excitement continues with challenging mountain biking around a live volcano, swimming under a rainforest waterfall, horseback riding in unique dry tropical forest, and hiking near boiling mud pits and steaming geysers in the Rincon de la Vieja National Park. Go for the ultimate rush combining several of the best Costa Rica adventure tours on the One Day Adventure Pass at Hacienda Guachipelin.

The Hacienda Guachipelin Adventure Center, home to the best adventure tours in Guanacaste, Costa Rica, is open daily for both hotel guests and day visitors.
