Only 35 kilometers north from Liberia city, the National Park Rincon de la Vieja is a protected area of 142km2 mainly to protect 32 rivers and streams that conform the most important watershed of the area. This area is also composed of nine separated but contiguous craters that make up the largest of the five volcanoes in the Guanacaste Mountain Range. Due to its proximity to the Caribbean foothills and middle elevations it creates a natural passage way for the exchange of species from different zones of life creating a major diversity. From the 300 birds present in this area families of the motmots, trogons, tanagers, vireos, saltadors, jays, toucans, manakins, and falcons are one of the most abundant in this habitat. Other than bird life, plant and mammal life are also abundant from cougars, panthers, ocelots, peccaries, and the highest number of the Costa Rican national flower the purple orchid (cattaleya skinneri). Trails through the park are easy accessible and takes you to the geysers, mud pools, waterfall, and hot springs. Hikes will be conditional to the client’s physical condition.
