  • Located on the Guanacaste mountain range, provinces of Guanacaste and Alajuela, in the massif of the same name, Rincón de la Vieja Volcano, 27 Km northeast of the city of Liberia. This park is a must-visit destination when you are in the Guanacaste province. At over 34,000 acres, Rincón de la Vieja has room for two volcanoes, 32 rivers and streams, and an incredible variety of flora and fauna. With its location and sheer size, this national park allows you to experience both the Caribbean and Pacific sides of the Cordillera de Guanacaste. The west side of the park on the slope of the volcano that fronts the Pacific Ocean is more arid than the eastern Caribbean-facing side,  which means that it has a dry season from February through April. During your visit to the volcano you will know from a dry forest to a cloudy one in the middle of a volcanic environment in a short journey. Emanations of boiling mud, boiling water and vapors that resonate in the environment… you can witness all this volcanic activity and, in addition, you can visit a dry forest, a wet one, a very humid one and a cloudy one in just two hours. A number of activities can be enjoyed at the park such as hiking, horseback riding, enjoying hot springs, swimming, picnicking, and camping.
