Have you ever wanted to hike a gorgeous volcano, ride horseback in the tropical forest, and take a volcanic mud bath all in one day? On this tour, it's possible! This unique visit to Miravalles Volcano is more than you could ever imagine or ever dream of! This unbelievable tour is not just a visit to the volcano but 3 active adventures: a horseback ride, a forest hike, and a volcanic mud bath in the hot springs. You will start your tour at the bottom of Miravalles Volcano at Las Hornillas, the volcanic activity center at Miravalles. There, you will have an excellent view of the active geysers in the area. At this point, you will have the option to either go on a enchanting horseback ride or ride on a horse-drawn vehicle to the tropical wet forest. At the forest, hike through the diverse, colorful flora and fauna and observe several pristine waterfalls. You will have plenty of time to experience the nature of Costa Rica here with this amazing view and trek through the forest. Afterwards, have time to unwind with an all-natural beauty treatment from Mother Nature! Relax in the pure hot springs, which have emerged from the nearby volcano, with a soothing volcanic mud bath. Finally, finish off this adventurous day with a delicious traditional local Costa Rican meal.

I was born and raised in Costa Rica where I grew up in the rural area of Liberia. I was lucky to have grown up in Liberia, an area known for its vivid culture, zipline tours, and diverse natural wonders that only begin with its beautiful beaches, tropical dry forests, and volcanoes. In addition to the gorgeous environment I grew up in, I also constantly traveled to the far corners of Costa Rica with my family ever since I was a child. All of this has made me into the nature-loving person I am today! I love the outdoors, and even today I live near the Arenal Volcano and Monteverde. I love taking the time to observe nature, whether it is by birdwatching in the day or taking photos of frogs or snakes around my house in the evening. And of course, I love being able to explore nature with my job! My favorite part about being a tour guide is not only being immersed in nature but also being able to have the opportunity to meet new people and understand others’ ways of seeing the world.
