What You Can Expect

Vida Aventura Park in Guanacaste: Zipline Tour, Horseback Ride and Hot Springs

Enjoy a mineral mud bath!

Prepare for an active morning in the cool climate of a Costa Rican mountain rainforest. When you arrive at Vida Aventura Park, your experienced guide will provide training on how to ride the zipline. Then, secure your harness and take off through the canyon, gliding easily around the treetops along seven cables.

Once you’ve landed and caught your breath, mount a horse for a trail-riding experience along a tropical forest drive, learning about the diverse flora and fauna as you cross streams and grass pastures. Keep an eye out for two active volcanoes, Rincon de la Vieja and Miravalles, and admire the spectacular panoramic views along the way.

When you’ve completed the horseback ride, enjoy a typical Costa Rican lunch, choosing from a variety of dishes such as chicken and rice. Then, head to the soothing part of your tour – a thermal mud bath and hot springs spa in gorgeous natural surroundings.

Wearing a bathing suit, lather the soft volcanic mud on your skin and face, making a natural mineral mask, and lay out comfortably until it dries in the sun. Finally, dip into a geothermal pool, washing away the clay and soothing any sore muscles as you relax more deeply into the thermal pools.

This tour was amazing! We had a blast. The tour guide Ray was awesome and very knowledgeable. The owners were very hospitable and the lunch was fantastic! Had a blast zip lining and even went upside down on one line. horseback rode through a river. Would definitely book again!

Vida Aventura is extremely difficult to find! It took us over 3.5 hours to get here from La Fortuna, but when we got here it was such a beautiful place that we instantly forgot about how frustrating it was to get here. I highly recommend you getting picked up from your hotel!

The grounds are very picturesque - there seems to be an endless amount of land on this property. We first had a horseback ride through much different terrain compared to the ones near Arenal Volcano. There was so much space available that we galloped through the countryside before entering an area where there were more trees and a stream where the horses drank water from. I lost my hat through all the galloping, so just be careful and make sure yours is tightly on.

We then did the zip lining. It was my first time, and I was very appreciative of the fact that the guides were very patient and polite to us. The tour includes a lunch, which was their typical meal of rice, beans, plantains, chicken, a salad, and a drink. After lunch, we went on our own to the Hot Springs and to do the mud bath. I think for the tour they would stay with you until the end, but we didn't really get a real tour for the hot springs and mud bath since we were basically the only ones here that day. They let us roam off and enjoy the area ourselves. All in all, I really enjoyed this package!

It was so much fun! Honestly I have absolutely no complaint about this excursion. You'll have all the adventure with zip lining and the horse back riding, and then relax in the Hot Springs w/ complimentary facial! . The guides were funny and very nice.

This tour was so much fun! We started with zip lining in which the staff was super helpful. We then went horseback riding--fun! Afterwards we had lunch which was delicious. Lastly, we did the mud bath.(not actual bath) and thermal pool. Remember to pack sneakers, bathing suit, towel, flip flops!
