Hike/Watwrfall/Hot Spring oh my!
Karina_H
, Oct 2021
We were picked up from our resort by a guy in a small Susuki. It was a little sketchy at first because we weren’t told we were getting picked up by a car. There was another tourist in the car, so we decided to trust and get in the car. We were taken to El Jardín, which is a souvenir/restaurant stop to meet the rest of out tour group. We had a little bit of time to get some breakfast and look at the souvenirs. Be warned that the food at the restaurant isn’t good. Save yourself some money and just drink coffee at your hotel. Once we were on the road, it took about an hour to get to the base of the volcano. We went on a 2 hour walk/hike around the volcano crater and stopped at various points. Our tour guide, Gustavo, was very knowledgeable about the ecology and volcano. A short walk after the hike from the tour van was the waterfall. You have to walk about 10 minutes to the waterfall and pass a hanging bridge. The water at the waterfall is cold, but we’ll worth it. It a bit rocky at the bottom so if you have water shoes, keep them on. There’s a point in the waterfall where you can jump from, excellent pictures. Lunch was after, we went to a restaurant that’s part of the National Park. Food is served buffet style, but food was pretty good. They served fresh watermelon juice which was excellent. Last part of the tour is to drive down to the hot spring, you also walk about 5-10 minutes to the spot. The tour guide will it explain that each hot spring is at different temperatures, there’s about 9 different pools. After you’ve relaxed in the hot spring for about 40 minutes, you can do some mudding. There’s some showers there to wash it off. Overall, very good experience. Because we went during this time of year, nothing was crowded and we didn’t have to wait for anything.

Had great tour guide & driver Hector & Pablo. Very knowledgeable, answered all of our questions. The pathway for the hike is mostly concrete & it's doable. I'm not a hiker, just take your time. For the waterfalls you do have to cross a hanging brige ( i skipped, lol). Hot springs is a MUST.

The Wonder, History and Beauty of Costa Rica

The most incredible thing of the experience was how attentive and knowledgeable our guide was. Throughout the forest, we all learned the history and legends that survived time. Meeting nature and watching the harmony all around. The waterfall was simply miraculous and the hot springs were the best way to dissolve the aches that come from such an incredible hike. If anyone is searching for a full experience of wonder, history and beauty, look no further.

Good time, beautiful views of nature, and just the right length.

The mud bath and hot springs were unique. The waterfall portion of the experience was beautiful and jumping off the rocks was fun (be prepared, the water is cold). We saw some white-faced monkeys and several different types of pretty birds, along with fantastic scenery and cool features of the volcano. Also, it is an easy hike - not demanding but good exercise. Our family had a great time.

Our driver and tour guide Paulo and Ronnie were great! They made sure we got the most out of our day. We got to swim in waterfalls, take a mud bath, bathe in hot springs, and hike around the volcano. This was an amazing experience.

This excursion was full of surprises! My favorite part was watching the spider monkeys swing from the trees and the mud bath & soaking in the hot springs. A lot of beautiful & amazing sites to see and our tour guide was very knowledgeable and pleasant. It was a good workout if you like to exercise. I highly recommend!

Great tour! Hector was a fantastic guide, very friendly and knowledgeable. The initial walk was fun and a good introduction to the park but for me the highlights were the waterfall and the hot springs. I’d highly recommend this day trip.
