Read on for some of the most outlandish, exciting adventures available in Guanacaste and prepare for memories that will last a lifetime.

Fan of sightseeing but not sure where to start? We’ve got you covered. Start with Tenorio Volcano National Park and Rio Celeste Waterfall for otherworldly sights that will shock and inspire you to be one with nature. The bright turquoise appearance of the water is something you’ve likely only seen in travel magazines, but in exchange for a two-hour hike each way, you’ll get to see it for yourself. Strap on your hiking boots and bug spray, and get out there! You can also go white-water rafting on the Tenorio River for a thrill you will never forget.

If surfing is more your jam, you’ll love exploring the beach town of Tamarindo and hitting the waves. This place has everything, from beach-front hotels to shopping, restaurants, and of course — surfing. Grab your board shorts and take the easy-breezy drive there from wherever you’re staying — even just to spend the day. 

Looking for something a bit more relaxed to do? One of our favorite more laid-back activities is bird watching in Palo Verde National Park. Here, you can sit back and listen to the delightful birdsongs of 280 species of new feathered friends while being a part of the local flora and fauna. Don’t forget to bring a guidebook to tell your friends about what you saw like a bird-watching expert!
