Outdoor Activities

Flung far into the northwestern part of Costa Rica, Rincon de la Vieja National Volcano Park is essentially characterized by dramatic volcanic landscapes. Delightful and disarming, the park is permeated with unabashed enchantment, thanks to its vivid tapestry of fuming vents, bubbling mud pits, rumbling grasslands and mist-wreathed hills. The park predominantly lies nestled under the watchful shadows of the Rincon de la Vieja mount, while Santa Maria and Cerro Van Seebach - its volcanic comrades - also circumscribe the park’s verdant topography with great fervor. An integral part of the Guanacaste Conservation Area, this park is also the playground of wild and vivacious mammals such as jaguars, cougars and kinkajous, which rove nonchalantly across its sylvan scope. Hundreds and hundreds of birds including eagles, quetzals and emerald toucanets twitter and hover through the park, filling it with an ambient, mellifluous atmosphere. A canvas of unhindered enigma and natural pageantry, Rincon de la Vieja Volcano National Park is one of the most enigmatic natural possessions of Guanacaste.
