Buena Vista Adventure Park in Costa Rica is one of the pioneers of the adventure combos. Of course, Buena Vista combo has all the prerequisites of a good combo tour: ziplines, horseback riding, & hot springs. But Buena Vista adds in the rush of flying down a 450 meter water slide, the longest water slide in Costa Rica! Oh, and did we mention the Rincon de la Vieja Volcano is the backdrop to all this fun? That makes for one amazing one day trip in Guanacaste!!
Buena Vista Ziplines - Las Pavas Canopy Tour
The adventure begins the moment you arrive to the Buena Vista Resort. After a short 15 min hike, you will begin your descent on the Las Pavas canopy tour. Not to worry, your expert canopy guides will gear you up with all the best safety equipment and give you all the instructions to have fun safely. Once you are ready to go, you will zipline through a circuit of 10 cables and cross over a couple of hanging bridges along the way. And for those with a flair for adventure, the guides may even let you zipline backwards or upside down!
Buena Vista Water Slide - La Selva
While your adrenaline is still pumping, we will move on to the next adventure, a 450-meter-long water slide!! That's right, the longest natural water slide in Costa Rica!! It is a ten-minute walk to the top, but the thrilling ride as you swoosh your way down makes it all worth it. And if you are willing to make the trek back up, you can do the water slide up to 3 times!! The guides can regulate the water to go faster or slower depending on how much of an adrenaline rush you are looking for.
After all that adrenaline pumping action, it will be time to rest and refuel with traditional Costa Rican cuisine and fresh fruit juices before saddling up and moving on to our next adventure.
Horseback Riding Buena Vista Nature Trails
After filling up it is time to saddle up on one the majestic horses at the Buena Vista ranch. Your equestrian guides will pair you up with the perfect horse according to your previous riding skills. No worry, first timers are welcome too. Our horseback ride will take us through the preserved nature trails adjacent to the Rincon de la Vieja National Park. Your guide will point out the diverse amount of vegetation, and the abundance of wildlife that makes the rainforests of Costa Rica so special.
If you are not fond of riding horses, you can opt to hike the trails yourself and maybe make a visit to the stunning Salitral Waterfall. Or skip it altogether and take a truck. All rails lead to the best part of the day, the hot springs!!
Buena Vista Hot Springs, Mud Baths & Sauna
After all that action, it is time for us to wind down. Your guides will guide you to first to the sauna to open up your pores. Then it is time to lather up with the mineral rich volcanic ash from the Rincon de la Vieja volcano. Once you rinse off the mud, you will already feel the difference in your skin. Finally, it’s time to really relax and let the soothing waters of the various hot springs do their heeling magic on your strained muscles. Oh yeah...now that is one amazing day in Costa Rica!
After we have had the chance to recuperate, relax, and soak up all the beauty Rincon de la Vieja has to offer, we will take a tractor pulled covered wagon ride back up to the base camp.
