Guachipelin Adventure Tour: Horseback Riding
Guachipelin Adventure Tour: Horseback Riding

Get ready for an adrenaline-stoked series of fun adventures and for memories that will last a lifetime!

Riding on Horseback
Imagine riding on horseback through the Costa Rican forest and doing so in an area known for its riding trails. This ride takes around 45 minutes and you will be able to see native plants and flowers around the Rincón de la Vieja Volcano. The volcano, the name meaning "The Old Woman's Corner", is the largest in Northwest Costa Rica. Take in the national flower, the orchid, and perhaps you will be able to view a variety of birds and monkeys that inhabit the area around the volcano.

Ziplining
Ziplining is an exciting way to experience your surroundings. Not only will you zipline from platform to platform through the jungle, but you will also walk across hanging bridges, climb up rocks, rappel and take your turn on Tarzan swings. This fun course will take you over canyons and through the canopy of trees. You will experience the rush of ziplining down eight different cables, with one taking you over a fast-moving river.

White Water Tubing Down the River
Change out of your riding clothes and into your river tubing attire. This water adventure takes you for about a three mile ride along the Río Negro. You will start at the bottom of the Victoria Waterfall and meander along the clear river, at times going through fun rapids. Guides will be along for the ride to make sure everyone stays safe.

Lunch
After all the activities you will have worked up an appetite. Lunch is served buffet-style and consists of a variety of entrees, side dishes, sweets, tea, coffee and fruit juices. There are also gluten-free, vegetarian and vegan options.

Mud Bath and Hot Springs
After a filling and delicious lunch, you will be taken to the Hot Springs located in a tropical forest. The waters are heated by the Rincón de la Vieja Volcano, and there are ten different pools made up of crystal clear mineral waters. For a spa-like experience, spread volcanic clay mud over your skin and allow it to dry. Wash it off with a shower made from the river water and then soak relaxingly in the hot springs.

" I truly enjoyed the tour. This was the first tour of its kind that I have ever taken. All of the activities included things that I have never done before, yet I felt safe and that all precautions were taken and the equipment was in good shape for everything, the zip-lining and tubing as well as the horseback riding.
Even with the horseback riding, my guide Julio Gomez extended me the courtesy of taking my reins and guiding my horse after I mentioned that I was a little afraid because I had never been on a horse before.
Additionally he and another co-worker ( Herman) took it upon themselves to correct a mistake in which we got a blank cd which we had purchased of the tour, by making sure to get one that had our pictures on it. The tour photographer also took many beautiful pictures of every facet of the adventure which memorialized it for us for time to come.
Our trip even included transportation to and from the facility via Arenas adventures and Jacomar. It was definitely worth the money, I would so do it again. I believe this tour is found on tripadvisor as well. Take this tour!!!

"The guides were great, patient and extremely helpful! Climbing blocks would be helpful for shorter guests trying to get on and off of the zip lines. The tubing on the river was amzing. I highly recommend this tour group. This was one of the most unique tours of this kind I have done."

"This is one of the best tours that I have been on in Costa Rica. The White Water tubing tour is very beautiful and fun and the canopy tour is one of the most unique as it is over a canyon with a river below it. I highly recommend this tour for all ages."
