Miravalles – Yellowstone of Costa Rica

We drive for about one hour thru the Guanacaste mountain range and majestic views of the Miravalles volcano. This colossus is one of the most active volcanoes in Costa Rica; its main activity is composed of gas emanations and geysers which are used by the government in a geothermal project to produce electricity. We continue our trip with a visit to “Las Hornillas”, a place situated at the foot of the volcano, where we can find some geysers all over the project.

At this place, we will be able to horseback ride or to be carried by a horse-drawn, to get to the forest and hike thru it for about 40 minutes to observe several waterfalls and some animals and plants. To relax after the hike we can get covered by volcanic mud and enjoy the natural hot springs that emerge from the volcano getting a beauty treatment from Mother Nature. We finish our trip with a delicious lunch to get back to the hotel.
