What You Can Expect

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

Enjoy a mineral mud bath!

Guanacaste’s Vida Aventura Nature Park is an ideal base for a full day of Costa Rican adventure and relaxation. Your morning begins with a scenic drive to the park, nestled among the region’s verdant landscape. If you selected the tour option with hotel pickup, a driver will meet you at your Guanacaste hotel. If you choose to provide your own transport, you will meet your tour guide at the park. 

The excitement kicks off with a zipline adventure through the mountain rain forest. After a safety briefing from your expert guide, you’ll don a harness and helmet and launch onto one of seven zipline cables that crisscross a forested canyon. Take in amazing aerial views as you fly through the lush canopy.

Back on solid ground, head to the park stables and meet the horse that will take you on the next phase of your journey. From atop your trusty mount, enjoy a beautiful trail ride through the tropical forest and rolling hillside. Take in stellar views of the region’s two active volcanoes, Rincon de la Vieja and Miravalles. Your guide will point out interesting native plant species and help you spot local wildlife along the way. After your ride, refuel with a lunch of traditional Costa Rican cuisine at the park’s on-site restaurant. 

Next, it’s time to relax with a skin-nourishing mud bath. After changing into a swimsuit, you’ll cover yourself with a soft lather of mineral-rich volcanic mud, and then bask in the sun until your natural face and body mask dries. Wash it all away in a nearby hot spring, and enjoy soaking in the restorative geothermal waters. At the end of your tour, you’ll be driven back to your Guanacaste hotel if you selected the hotel transport option.

Amazing tour! Zipline was so fun and our group of 14 were the only ones at the park! The horseback riding was great and definitely worth the trip! Perfect length and not too difficult but still cool The hot springs were more like a warm pool but still great and you get to do a natural volcanic mud.

This tour was the highlight of my trip to Costa Rica!!!!!! We started out by being picked up from our hotel. Which I would HIGHLY recommend, just make sure you have breakfast before you go. The ride was about an hour or so from Guanacaste. The guide who picked us up was very kind and told us part of the road was going to be very bumpy which It was for about 25 minutes. Once at the Park, we began suiting up for Zip lining. I am terrified of heights, but the guide assured us we would be fine. After the 1st line, I was hyped. There are 7 lines in total and one you can do upside down if you want to. Suzie was the real MVP. She is the dog who is also on the trail and she finds her way around the trail before we get to the other side. Zip lining was amazing, definitely an adrenaline rush!

Horseback riding, I did not enjoy as much. The horse I had went crazy, and I winded up falling off of the horse, but I broke my fall by falling on the side of my body. I did not let that ruin my excursion. The tour guides made sure I was ok, I continued on the trail, and switched horses. The trail is very dense, and high too. You will get dirty, I recommend long pants, and lots of bug spray. After the trail, we headed off to get lunch which was a yummy typical Costa Rican lunch. To end the day, we went into the Hot Springs, and had a mud bath to relaxed for the last 2 hours. This excursion is worth every dime! I would highly recommend it!!!

Hard to get to as you travel on a rocky road for 45-60 minutes but well worth it. You traverse 7 ziplines which will take a few hours, go on a horseback ride with incredible views and the mud bath and water spring was also an experience. We travelled there ourselves by car which is a little daunting since there are very little signs and google maps doesn't help but because we arrived their ourselves, we had more of a private horseback and mudbath/spring tour since the boatload of people in the shuttlebus had to stay together.

My friends and I had a great time on this tour. The zip-lining was perfect because we were provided cover from the sun by the trees. I was nice to be so high up and see the rain forest below us. The horse back riding was exciting, I had a horse by the name of Tequila, and he was calm the entire time, and made me feel very comfortable. It's crazy to see how strong and intelligent the horses are. We then had a traditional Costa Rican lunch, which was absolutely delicious!! Next up was the hot springs. They were a little smelly, however, after rinsing the mud off, my skin felt extremely soft, so the exfoliating properties of the mud are worth smelling like sulfur for a little bit. The tour guide Giovanni was very knowledgeable of Costa Rican history, and he was nice to hear his stories while riding out to the park. Travel van was comfortable with air conditioning and very clean. I would recommend this tour to any Costa Rican travelers. It was nice to knock out and experience multiple activities in one day.
