Enjoy a typical Costa Rican lunch, plus Entrance fee to Rio Negro Hot Springs and Oropendola Waterfall!
This is a self-guided tour where you can visit the Rio Negro Hot Springs and Mud baths plus the Oropendola Waterfall.
Beautiful and relaxing, the volcanic hot springs at Hacienda Guachipelín bubble up on the Rio Negro, naturally heated by the Rincon de la Vieja Volcano – the largest and most active volcano in Guanacaste, Costa Rica.
Surrounded by a dense dry tropical forest, the Río Negro Hot Springs are a beautiful and peaceful place. The crystal clear waters of the river flow near the 10 pools built on the riverbank and filled with thermal waters filled with minerals, naturally heated in the depths of the Rincon de la Vieja Volcano. You can access pools on both banks of the river thanks to two suspension bridges.
You can use hot volcanic mud, which allows you to have a spa-like treatment on your entire body. When the mud dries, you can wash it in the cold waters of the river before entering the thermal water pools again.
We have dressing rooms, bathrooms, and lockers at the entrance of the hot springs. From there, you can walk 350 meters along a beautiful path in the woods until you reach the thermal springs.
Then get ready for a refreshing dip in the La Oropendola Waterfall. It is a small walk along a path of varied terrain that leads to the river. You also walk a small distance inside the river until you reach the waterfall. La Oropendola waterfall, with its impressive 25 meters, falls into a bubbling turquoise pool in the exuberant canyon of the Blanco River, creating an incredible tropical oasis.
