What to expect

Nourished by the River Tempisque, the fertile lands of Palo Verde National Park provide sanctuary to a mind-boggling array of exotic birds and other wildlife. And this excursion provides unique access to the reserve, which is world-renowned for its biodiversity and natural beauty.

We have the only boat on the river at this time of day and you will enjoy exclusive views of the multitude of nesting birds – there's a vast array of heron species – hollering monkeys, iguanas and even crocodiles basking on the riverbanks.

Next, you'll witness and partake in a trapiche – the centuries-old sugarcane processing method. You'll prepare your own local snacks such as tortilla, washed down with a cup of world-famous Costa Rican coffee. Then, it's off to tour the Casa de Sabaneros. Known as the ‘cowboys of Guanacaste' – thanks to their sun-leathered skin and wide-brimmed hats – sabaneros evoke the Old West.

Adrenaline Adventure

You'll feel just like Tarzan as you spend the day swinging through the jungle, splashing around in waterfalls and scrambling up rocks. This full-day trip takes you to Hotel Hacienda Guachipelin, a working horse and cattle ranch right at the foot of the Rincon de la Vieja volcano. You'll zip line, abseil, climb and leap your way around the rugged canyon, only slowing to tackle the hanging bridges. With your feet safely back on the ground, you'll jump on a horse for a ride through the tropical forest, heading to the Black River rapids. Here, the adrenaline will really kick in, as you spin and bounce your way down the river in your individual raft.
