Horseback Riding to la Cangreja National Park Waterfall
From Hotel Hacienda Guachipelin, we will ride our friendly ranch horses 45 minutes on a scenic forest trail to the entrance of the Rincon de la Vieja National Park.
At the entrance of the park the only way to get to this waterfall is by hiking 3 miles (5 km) into the national park. Along the trail you might see wildlife like white-faced, howler or spider monkeys, white-nosed coatis, armadillos, Central American agoutis, iguanas, and birds like the Blue-crowned Motmot or Emerald Toucanet.
Spilling 130 feet (40 meters) in a white ribbon of water out of the green forest, the Cangreja Waterfall forms a clear blue pool at its base. Dissolved copper minerals from the volcano give the water its celestial blue color. Our bilingual naturalist guide will bring along a picnic lunch for you to enjoy by the waterfall.
ENTRANCE FEE TO THE PARK IS NOT INCLUDED ON THE RATE
All tours are arranged at Hacienda Guachipelin’s Adventure Center; open daily from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. for hotel guests and day visitors.
