Hiking in the National Park and Oropéndola Waterfall
Hiking in the National Park and Oropéndola Waterfall. You will walk 45 minutes on a scenic forest trail to the Las Pailas entrance of the Rincón de la Vieja National Park.
The Las Pailas area which means “cauldrons” in Spanish spectacularly shows off the awesome power of the Rincón de la Vieja Volcano, the largest and most active volcano in Guanacaste.
Steaming fumaroles, mini-geysers and bubbling volcanic mud pits give you an incredible experience like no other volcano in Costa Rica.
When you finish your hike, you will be ready for a refreshing swim in the Oropendula Waterfall. It is a short walk from the national park entrance on a trail with varying terrain to get down to the river bottom. You also will walk a short distance in the river to reach the falls.
The Oropendula Waterfall spills an impressive 82 feet (25 meters) down to a bright turquoise pool in the picturesque lush canyon of the Río Blanco (White River). After a relaxing time at the waterfall your day tour in Guanacaste finishes.
