Starting the new year of 2017 off right, Hotel Hacienda Guachipelin at Rincon de la Vieja Volcano in Costa Rica shows off new rooms and new improvements.

Celebrating the new year of 2017, new things are happening at Hotel Hacienda Guachipelin at Rincon de la Vieja Volcano in Costa Rica.

To keep up with the demand of tourists who love to visit Hacienda Guachipelin, the eco-adventure hotel has introduced 13 new guest rooms, called Legacy Suites. Now, the hotel offers 77 rooms in total, with 62 standard and superior rooms and 15 suites.

Inspired by hacienda ranching life in Guanacaste, Legacy Suites feature architecture and authentic handcrafted furniture using traditional woods of Costa Rica. Located away from the stable area and other rooms, spacious Legacy Suites are very private and quiet. Small patios behind the rooms allow you to sit and enjoy the gardens and bird watching.

Legacy Suites are all on the ground floor, and come in blocks of four and five rooms. Five of the suites have king-size beds, and eight have two queen beds. There are four accessible suites for disabled travelers.

New access to Oropendula Waterfall

Visiting the beautiful Oropendula Waterfall by Hacienda Guachipelin just got easier with big improvements to the river trail and entrance. Located next to the Las Pailas entrance of the Rincon de la Vieja National Park, the trail to the waterfall has been upgraded to make it easier to walk down to the river.

Where once visitors had to ford the rock-filled river to get to the waterfall, natural pool and observation area, now there is a secure hanging bridge spanning the river from the trail to a brand new observation deck. The spacious yet unobtrusive wooden deck provides you a safe place for excellent photos of the 82-foot (25-meter) waterfall and its bright turquoise pool in the picturesque lush canyon of the Rio Blanco (White River). To get down to the waterfall pool for swimming, you now simply climb down metal rung stairs for that refreshing swim.

Hacienda Guachipelin offers tours to Oropendula Waterfall hiking or by horseback riding.
