Relaxing Combo : Oropendula Waterfall and Natural Hot Springs

Relaxing Combo

Oropendola Waterfall & Natural Hot Springs

Discovery is also about relaxing and taking your time!

As the climate in Guanacaste is predominantly dry and hot, you’ll be happy to head to Chute Oropendula for a refreshing swim. You’ll walk for 10 minutes along a natural trail before arriving at the site descending to the river.

You’ll discover one of the region’s most beautiful waterfalls, with its emerald waters! Take time to recharge your batteries in this enchanting setting, surrounded by vegetation and lulled by the sound of water splashing at the foot of the falls in the natural pool!

The ultimate relaxation in natural hot springs with therapeutic properties!

Heavenly and relaxing, these volcanic hot springs are naturally heated by the Rincon de la Vieja volcano, considered Costa Rica’s largest in diameter. It reaches an altitude of over 1,916 metres.

Surrounded by a rich ecosystem, the crystal-clear river flows through astonishing natural stone pools created to capture these mineral-rich springs. You can access these pools – of varying temperatures, linked by two suspension bridges offering magnificent views of the flora and fauna.

Don’t miss the chance to cover yourself in volcanic mud to complete the relaxing experience!
