Miravalles Crater and Waterfalls from Tamarindo


Meet your driver at your hotel in Tamarindo in the morning and begin your drive to Miravalles Volcano. Groups of four people will receive private tours for a highly personalized experience, while groups of fewer than four people will join another small group for an equally intimate excursion. Take a stretch break to swim in the pool beneath a waterfall en route to the volcano, before drying off and continuing to the crater of Miravalles, the only walkable crater in Costa Rica. Upon arrival, pamper yourself in nature’s spa with mineral-rich volcanic mud and lounge in geothermal hot springs. Eat a fresh lunch onsite, and then embark on a moderate hike through a tropical rain forest. Get close to the canopy as you walk across hanging bridges and pass by three waterfalls before returning to your car and transferring back to your hotel.
