Departure Time

7:00 AM
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.

A bit dissatisfied

Not as described at all like what is expected. Mud bath consisted of rubbing dirt on the body, the horse back consisted of looking at foliage and cows. The zip lining was a blast and the communication was great on resort

Best Combination Zip-Line, Horseback Riding, and Thermal Spa Tour in Guanacaste
Mark_B
, Feb 2020
Outstanding combination excursion. On a beautiful ranch, the zip line experience as thrilling, long runs (7 total) across a canopy of green dry forest with views of the volcanoes and rain forest in the distance. The horseback riding was the best I ever encountered since riding as a youth (had horses growing up) - we crossed meadows with bulls and cattle, through steep up/down trails in the woods, and across and through streams off the mountain. Galloped several times and stopped for exception photo opportunities. The hot spring, volcanic mud (great photos when covered and dry), water slide, and pools finished the day relaxed. Outstanding lunch, and exceptional lavatory to change, shower, etc. Weat shorts, bring long pants to change and ride, and then swimsuit to again change in and out of.

Best day ever! Our driver (Alexis) picked us up on time and gave us a bonus tour describing interesting sites along the way. Our zip lining was fabulous, long runs, beautiful scenery and encouagement and patience (by Jason and Leonard) for us 70 year old seniors who had no problems at all. The horse back riding was full of shifting terrains and elevations and just fabulous....we had a typical great tico lunch and then headed to relax. We had a mud bath and then soaked in thermal pools. All in all worth every penny. Thank. You!! Kevin and Fran (Boston).

Action-Packed Adventure Day

*wear deep woods bug spray!* We started with horse-back riding which wasn't your average trail ride...it was super interesting and not just a large trail the horse just walks on. There are hills and streams and windey turns (may be challenging for first-time riders). Our leaders were amazing and really looked out for everyone in the group. Suzie (the guide dog) came along the horseback ride as well and even met us at every point of the zip line (we still have no idea how she made it so quickly...she may have magical abilities but we'll never know!) The zip line was exhilarating and the views are breathtaking! They even allow you to do one of the zip lines upside-down! We then ate a delicious lunch of local food. Our day was finished by soaking in the hot springs, covering ourselves in mud and taking a cool dip in the fresh water pool. I would definitely do this tour again and recommend it to anyone who's in a time crunch and wants to do multiple activities!

We booked this excursion for 15 people and there was a bit of a confusion with the pick-up but Jorge was kind enough to discount our transportation cost and he was able to provide transportation to and from our resort. The guides were very knowledgeable, very patient with a large group. The horsebacking riding was amazing through the mountains and seeing the volcanoes. The zip lining was a very good experience as most of the group had never done that before. It was a easy transition. The Costa Rican lunch was delicious and just enough to fill our bellies. The hot springs and pool were a added plus. This excursion well worth the cost. You can actually go and spend a couple of nights there so its a mini getaway. We looked at the 2 and the 4 bedrooms with amazing views. We encourage all to do this excursion with Vida Aventura.

My 6 year old zip lined, rode her own horse and loved the waterslide. The guides were amazing and horses well kept, super healthy and happy to walk us in the jungle. Far away but a perfect family excursion. it was also private - literally just us and our guides and a dog named suzy.

Horseback riding and ziplining

The advertisement for our adventure is very misleading. We never seen hot springs. When ziplining was done we had 30 minutes before we left. Too many stops at local stores and grocery store before reaching our final destination, no reason to stop, it took time away from the adventure we paid for. Very disappointed in the tour and the misleading advertisements. We are do a full refund, as we did not get a full day of what we paid for.

I don’t have a single bad thing to say about this experience. Everything was quite lovely. I do recommend doing “with transport” as the road there is not the best and should be driven on by experienced drivers.

What an awesome tour! A must do when in Costa Rica. It was also family friendly which was important to me since I was traveling with my children (15, 12, 7). The 7 year old was able to do ziplining attached to one of the tour guides. It was great a great tour and I recommend it to anyone looking for a Costa Rican adventure! Lunch was yummy too.
