Overview

Rincon de la Vieja Tours offers amazing nature adventures along the base of Rincon de la Vieja – about an hour from Liberia. Tours include transportation from Guanacaste beaches and Liberia. Only the north side of the Rincon is in the rainforest and has blue volcanic rivers, the “emerald green” natural mineral hot springs and abundant tropical wildlife. You’ll be entering a ”paradise on earth” and will have an adventure of a lifetime.Rincon de la Vieja is based out of Blue River Resort & Hot Springs and offers three tours. Two are combo-tours that feature either an adventure to the incomparable blue volcanic rivers and majestic waterfalls by horse or car. Or choose the canopy tour, through rainforest, waterfalls and ending with a Tarzan Swing. These combine with a visit to Blue River Resort & Hot Springs. The third tour option is to spend the day at Blue River Resort & Spa to experience the the hot springs pools, botanical gardens, butterfly gardens, mud bath and natural sauna, the Spa, gym and more. We pick up early morning and deliver you home in time for dinner.

Hi Doris, it's nice casual, but it's a laid back atmosphere so many had board shorts and t shirts. It's dark enough at night where it's not extremely noticeable.
