Select tour language
    What to Expect
    Your tour starts with pick up from your hotel or vacation rental in the area if you choose the guided option. Self-drive option is also available, minus hotel pickup. From there, you will drive to Vandara which takes approximately 1.5 hours.

    Once you reach Vandara, you will begin your adventure combo with a 30-minute horseback ride passing the organic garden, orchards. You will then pass through jungle trails admiring the beautiful views of the scenic landscape of the mountains and volcano. For non-riders, an alternate option to reach the canopy is via vehicle. Your ride ends at the first platform of the canopy tour where you will zip through the jungle traversing 10 cables and 11 platforms.

    After this, you'll have an amazing gourmet lunch and then change clothes. For the adventurous, there is a 520 meter water slide down the hillside with twists and turns ending in a warm pool. To finish off your day, you'll spread rejuvenating, warm, volcanic mud on yourselves and then soak in the hot springs.

    Your tour ends with hotel drop-off.
