We took our daughter (in her forties) and 2 grandchildren (ages 10 and 11) to Hacienda Guachipelin and spent three nights and fabulous days there.
The best vacation our daughter and grandchildren ever had. They spent every possible minute on tours - everything from tubing the river, riding the zip lines, and their biggest love - riding horses. The tour guides and the Hacienda personnel were completely qualified and very safety minded. At the same time friendly and made sure that the guests had a wonderful experience.
The Hacienda was a little more than an hour from Liberia. There was about 15 kilometers of dirt road which could easily by navigated by a regular automobile.
The meals were all buffet style. Many of the items were repeated during our stay. But the food was good and the fruit drinks were delicious. If you want alcoholic drinks, there were 2 for 1 cocktails each night we were there.
We highly recommend Hacienda Guachipelin for everyone who wants an active and fun Costa Rican experience. The kids are already talking about going back....they say "Better than Disneyworld.
