Guanacaste is where some of Costa Rica's finest beaches are found, as well as volcanoes, hot springs, cloud forests, jungles, rivers and waterfalls. With several nearby National Parks and such a varied landscape, Guanacaste offers a plethora of outdoor activities including snorkeling and diving, fishing, water sports, trekking, rock climbing, mountain biking, horseback riding, tubing and whitewater rafting, ATV/off-road tours, canopy/zip line tours, and golf

DAY 2, Wednesday - Full Day in Guanacaste
Today, spend the day relaxing or consider a visit Rincon De La Vieja Volcano National Park on a dynamic action-packed full day tour which could include a canopy (zip line) tour, rock climbing, rappelling through the Rio Blanco Canyon, a tubing adventure on the Rio Negro River with class III rapids, a horseback riding expedition to nearby waterfalls, and lastly a chance to relax at a rustic spa featuring volcano heated thermal waters and mud bath. Or, you could choose to take a tour on the gorgeous and gentle Corobici River where you will be surrounded by nature and wildlife as you float on a raft down the river

DAY 3, Thursday - Full Day in Guanacaste
