The walk to the Red Pond is a self-guided nature tour by Hacienda Guachipelin. The area on the Rio Blanco (White River) features a very interesting lava rock formation in red and white colors, made from volcanic minerals.

The trail begins across from the lower parking area by our Rooms & Suites. It is an easy 3/4 mile walk through the shady forest to the pretty Red Pond, where you can swim (safety precautions on your own). You can often see white-faced monkeys and other wildlife along the trail.

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.
