1. Rincón de la Vieja Volcano 8-Hour Tour from Guanacaste

On this 2-hour hike, you will visit the amazing Rincón de la Vieja Volcano and see the energy that this sleeping giant liberates. Bubbling water lagoons, steamy sulfur water ponds, little mud volcanoes, gases, and more are enough to understand that this is an active volcano. This National Park is home to one of the most active volcanoes with fumaroles activity. Sights include an extraordinary amount of interesting flora and fauna, as well as plenty of hot bubbling sulfurous mud pits and a little "mini-volcano." Rincón de la Vieja National Park is home to more than 300 species of birds, including the quetzal, as well as numerous reptiles, amphibians, and mammals, including kinkajous, tapits, monkeys, and jaguars. Mammals found here include peccaries, coatis, skunks, and of course monkeys (white-faced and howler), 2-toed sloths, armadillos, and anteaters. The park also has probably one of the largest populations of the national flower of Costa Rica, the orchid "Guaria Morada."
