Meet your driver at your hotel in Tamarindo in the morning and begin your drive to Miravalles Volcano. Groups of four people will receive private tours for a highly personalized experience, while groups of fewer than four people will join another small group for an equally intimate excursion.

Take a stretch break to swim in the pool beneath a waterfall en route to the volcano, before drying off and continuing to the crater of Miravalles, the only walkable crater in Costa Rica. Upon arrival, pamper yourself in nature’s spa with mineral-rich volcanic mud and lounge in geothermal hot springs.

Eat a fresh lunch onsite, and then embark on a moderate hike through a tropical rain forest. Get close to the canopy as you walk across hanging bridges and pass by three waterfalls before returning to your car and transferring back to your hotel.
Itinerary
Stop At:  
Miravalles Volcano
This trip is still almost a secret and takes us to one of Guanacaste's most active volcanoes: The Miravalles! An untamed mountain covered in rainforest and letting us safely visit the only walkable crater in Costa Rica. Our day on this trip is very diverse. Along our drive to the volcano we will visit one of the country's most beautiful waterfalls and if you liked to, you can bring your swimsuits and swim under the majestic water curtain. Our next stop will be the crater at Miravalles where we will see lots of geothermal activity and sense the mighty power from below us. We will have a volcanic mud bath and relax in the hot springs before lunch and then we will experience the tropical rainforest on a moderate hike along some breathtaking hanging-bridges and three more waterfalls! This is a day of waterfalls and volcano and is already one of our favorites! VISIT LLANOS DEL CORTEZ WATERFALLS IS NOT INCLUDED ON THE PACKAGE ( Extra charge of $7 adults and $4 kids)

This is a nice little day tour for anyone wanting some adventure but nothing to strenuous. The most recent hurricane caused some significant changes to the first waterfall as per our tour guide. The area used to be great for swimming but now is flooded with murky water - still some beautiful photos. I found the hike to be nice and on the easier side. At some points the hike was a bit steep or hand unsteady ground but otherwise it was trekked out pretty good. One of the suspension bridges was very slippery! I recommend wearing waterproof hiking boots but a couple did the hike in flip flops I wouldn't recommend this, their toes looked pretty bad by the end of it. Also wear layers, it is chillier on the hike but later on at the crater it is really hot! The crater is surfer so be warned that it smells horribly and the smell does not come out of clothing well. We have washed our clothes with scented soap and fabric softener and can still smell the rotten eggs. It also will stain white/light coloured bathing suits/clothing orange. I would recommend wearing old swimwear that you don't mind throwing out afterwards. Taking the mud bath was nice. Only one shower had hot water. The hot springs were very nice and relaxing. The food on the tour is a traditional Costa Rican meal of rice, beans, meat of your choice and a sweet plantain. We also were served a really refreshing fruit juice. The meal was amazing.

Carlos was our guide, and he was fantastic. We saw multiple beautiful waterfalls, hiked on some forest slopes, and walked inside the crater of a dormant volcano, with bubbling hot springs. We had a delicious healthy lunch, and finished off with mudbath and warm spring cleansing. Carlos and driver were excellent. Highly recommend.
