You arrive through a meandering country road, surrounded by a volcanic mountain range and a dwarf-forest, a rare habitat within the Costa Rican tropical dry forest.
Once within the 500+ acre private reserve, you are allured into a canyon where a thermo-mineral river flows strong and trees grow 10 times taller than those on the parched earth above. Upon arrival you will be received by the Rio Perdido Team with a refreshing beverage.
Next, we change into clothing more appropriate for the day´s activities at the Rio Perdido dressing rooms.
We will begin with a scenic hike on one of the main trails, guided by one of our guides. As part of the hike, visitors will have the opportunity to swim in different parts on the crystal-clear river.
At river´s edge multiple springs convert a cool stream into the soothing thermal river, with temperatures ranging from 90 to 115 degrees Fahrenheit.
After a visit to the springs, an authentic Guanacaste culinary experience awaits you at the restaurant.
You will find thermal pools with a private swim-up bar, hanging bridge, a panoramic view of the dry-forest and volcanic range.
This area is covered in gigantic tombstone-like volcanic rocks that tell of a cataclysmic eruption that occurred thousands of years ago, a scene unlike anything you will see elsewhere in Costa Rica or anywhere else in the world.
