    Miravalles Volcano
    Stop: 7 hours - Admission excluded
    During this day trip you will be able to see the smoke, hot stones and crystallized sulfur among other scenic beauties of the Miravalles Volcano. An untamed mountain covered in rainforest will let us safely visit the only walk-able crater in Costa Rica. The first stop on the drive to the volcano, will be to visit one of the country's most beautiful waterfalls Llanos del Cortez see picture profile  (Additional charge $7 cash adult- $4 cash children) and if you would like to, you can bring your swimsuits and swim under the majestic water curtain. Next stop will be the crater at Miravalles, where you will see lots of geothermal activity and sense the mighty power from below us. You will have a volcanic mud bath and relax in the hot springs before lunch and then you will experience the tropical rainforest on a moderate hike along some breathtaking hanging-bridges and three more waterfalls ( Included on the package). This is a day full of waterfalls and volcano experience. Bubbling mud pools: The bubbling mud pools are holes that contain clay mud. These mud pools, which also have sulfured thermal waters, all have different temperatures:176º, 212º and 392º F (80º, 100º and 200ºC). This mud is odorless and can be found in three different colors: gray, brown and yellow. The coloration indicates how deep the pool is: The brown mud indicates a depth of two meters, the gray mud a depth of one meter and the yellow mud indicates the mud is from the surface and is full of sulfur. You can select the clay in which you want to bath and then obtain it from the bubbling mud pool. Whilst waiting 15 or 20 minutes for the clay to cool you down, you can enjoy one of the greatest marvels in the world. After bathing in this volcanic mud your skin will be left feeling fresh and smooth. What to bring? Don't forget your swimming suit, hiking shoes, sandals, change of clothing, binoculars, camera, sunblock, money and a hat.

We were traveling with another couple and had decided to book an adventure the four of us could participate in together. The Miravalles tour fit the bill. Carlos was a personable guide, generous with his knowledge and funny as well. Our group did consist of one person who is afraid of heights, so the rope bridge was challenging, but we all made it across, and back! As it turned out, we had the locations pretty much to ourselves the morning we were there, which was great, and the weather held out until we had finished our activities and then the skies opened up. We would highly recommend both the tour (some endurance and cardio is helpful) and Carlos!

We booked this last minute and were extremely happy with the tour. Carlos, our guide, contacted us the night before arriving at our resort to make sure we knew what to expect and tell us what to bring with us for the tour the next morning. He was very polite and spoke very fluent English. The sites were amazing. My kids were thoroughly entertained the entire time. We never felt rushed in any way. Carlos just let us relax at every stop and take our time. He really knew his way around the rain forest and hot springs. He was even nice enough to arrange a zip line canopy tour and transportation for us later on that evening. Carlos went above and beyond the entire trip. This was by far our best day in Costa Rica.

We had just finished our ATV tour when we learned that Carlos (our ATV tour guide) was also going to be our tour guide to Miravalles and we couldn't be more pleased! Had a lovely trip to the volcano from Playas del Coco and a great adventure from there! Hiking, waterfalls , mud baths, hot springs, hanging bridges, and more! Carlos was also our very our personal photographer and we were able to capture incredible pictures every step of the way. Would recommend this tour and him as a tour guide to anyone visiting the area. You won't be disappointed!!

My husband and I went on two tours through this company.. The Palo Verde River Safari and the Miravalles with Carlos as our tour guide. Carlos and his teams were great!! Carlos is so knowledgeable and was accommodating throughout!! He ensured that everyone was happy, comfortable and enjoyed themselves. The different teams he worked with were also very caring and accommodating. The lunches provided were great and the rides to and from the locations were comfortable. With all of the information I learned from Carlos, I feel like Costa Ricas model could save the WORLD!!! These are experiences I will never forget. Thank you so much for a wonder experience.

We were picked up from Playa Flamingo, and drove about about 1.5 hrs, driving past Liberia. The drive was beautiful, especially the last bit which was done on a tractor. Scenic walk through the forest - lush green vegetation everywhere, and so many waterfalls. Water was so clean I refilled my bottle! Was really breathtakingly beautiful.

The volcanic crater was also great. All natural mud bath...if youre interested in that thing. The naturally heated hot springs and saunas are quite unique.

The guide was extremely knowledgeable, and spoke great English.Highly recommend.

The tour itself takes most of the day, Miravalles waterfalls was the first stop. It was an awakening moment with lots of features surrounding it. The water demands your attention when you first get in it, then it becomes therapeutic.

We booked a tour with Pininos from seeing their recommendation from another reviewer and were not disappointed! The communication was excellent. The arrived on time to pick us up at our resort. our guide, Rainor, was top excellent. He knew the area very well. He was friendly and informative and spoke great english. He allowed us to take our time at each stop and even took a detour to get us some coffee and pastries from a local store. We would use Pininos again when in the area.
