Had a great time. Felt secure all the time. The food was okay for a tradicional hacienda style. The place is blessed and the beds weren’t great. But not bad at all. Discrete , close to Liberia, good roads, nice spa, nice adventure tours, thermal water. saw a few animals

Really enjoyed our time there. Friendly, helpful staff. Great breakfast. Waterfalls, thermal baths were great. Good food at reasonable price in restaurant. We didn't visit park because it closed pretty early, but we understand the entrance is very close.

The hotel is very close to the National Park, one of the main attractions of the area. The waterfalls and the hot springs are part of the important attractions too. We are glad to know that you enjoyed the service at the restaurant. Pura Vida !!!!

The hotel was very clean and well maintained, great for the price. It is located in miles of guarded area which includes an Adventure Center, hiking to 3 beautiful waterfalls, river, hot springs, pond, pool, nice landscaping and more. We did the Adventure day pass, which highly recommend some or all of it. The guides were very great, making the trips safe and much more fun. The hotel and restaurant staff were very courteous and helpful. We were able to leave our bags after check out to continue with the adventures.

The property is a private reserve next to the national park that works as a buffer zone for this magnificent ecosystem. Adventure activities surrounded by a natural environment is part of the attractions of the area. We are glad that you had a great time at the Rincon de la Vieja Volcano.

We live in Costa Rica. This was my first time here. I will be back again soon. I have the luxury to go where I want when I want. I really had no expectations as I’ve been let down by many places. This is not one of them. A must see, take a few days and just immerse yourself in the beauty of Mother Nature. Facility’s are very nice, food is good, cost is reasonable. Most of the Staff speak English and are happy to see you. (Not like the majority of other places you will visit)

Rincon de la Vieja volcano is really a place full of nature, tropical forest, waterfalls, birds and animals, plus the volcanic activity in the national park. Most people think that Guanacaste is a dry place, but the volcanic mountains is a different story. We are glad that you enjoyed your time at Hacienda Guachipelin. Pura Vida !!!!
