Hacienda Guachipelin is a bit out of the way bet well worth the side trip. For the number of things you get to do - mud baths, hot springs, horseback riding, zip lining, rappelling, and lunch - it's a pretty good value. It is a bit regimented so this probably isn't the best place for someone wanting to venture out... More

Thank you Alex L for sharing your your opinion on TA . Sorry that you found a "bit regimented" . About the beer, we try to keep our prices competitive since many tourists feel that Costa Rica is not so inexpensive. March is a busy month, but normally you will not experience this, Our place is usually more quiet. There... More

I've done this trip twice and would do it again. A great deal at $89.00 which includes lunch. That is of course it you get there yourself. Many of the hotels within a few hours of Rincon Will offer shuttle service which obviously will cost more. I recommend the four pack. You horse back ride, zip line (it’s a real... More

Thanks for visiting Guachipelin for a second time Jeffrey K and we hope to see you a third time. You are right, many people prefer to drive on their own up to Rincon de la Vieja Volcano. We are not that far from the beach, just 60 Km from Playa Panama. The four pack that you mention is what we... More

We had a wonderful day here. The staff was kind and attentive. We did not have a reservation but they fit us in and made sure we were part of a small group since we did not travel with a tour group.

One of the best days of my trip to Costa Rica! My husband and I were on our way to the beaches but we wanted to see Rincon de la Vieja Volcano.

My husband and I recently did the all-day adventure tour with Hacienda Guachipelin. Overall, it was an awesome experience. Our day consisted of horse back riding to a bus, bus to the river, floating/rafting down the river, bus back to buffet lunch at the hotel, zip-lining/rock climbing/tarzan swinging, drive to hot springs. We both could have done without the horse... More

This was an outstanding all around fun day in Rincon de la Vieja NP. The tubing on the Colorado River was definitely our favorite. There were sections of fast water (Class II), the guides were very competent and experienced, the group was a good size, not too large. The buffet lunch was delicious, the zip line was located in a... More
