Create an itinerary including Parque Nacional Rincon de la Vieja
Explore the volcanic geological features and tropical forests of Parque Nacional Rincon de la Vieja, a 14,084 hectare (34,800 acre) national park. Two active and one dormant volcano dominate the landscape here, and provide the main focal points for a range of hikes. The park protects areas of montane and dwarf cloud forest, as well as an extensive diversity of wildlife, including sloths, tapirs, pumas, jaguars, and howler and spider monkeys. Note that crater climbs on the two active volcanoes may not be allowed at the time of your visit; check in advance. In that case, surrounding fumaroles and hot springs add more than enough excitement to the adventure.

  • The park is not too crowdy despite Guachipelin hotel. You can have a quiet walk in the middle of the trees. The waterfall La Cangreja is very nice, you can swim, it is a sunny place most of the day...

  • We had a beautiful hike to the Cangreja waterfall. We did not see much wildlife though, I guess we were unlucky. It was very, very hot. Make sure to bring more water than you think you'll need.
