We stayed at Hacienda Guachipelin one night. Good value and nice place. We loved the Adventure Day Pass activities, even though we skipped the horseback riding and the hot springs. The white water tubing was an absolute blast (our favorite thing we've done in Costa Rica) and ziplining through the canyon was really cool. I had read a lot about...

We used the hot springs after a couple of days of hiking in the Rincon de la Vieja National Park. A few hours of soaking in the various pools and a mud treatment eased my sore muscles and recharged me.

My husband and I LOVED it here. We stayed 6 nights in Costa Rica the beginning of March, 3 here, and 3 elsewhere. Needless to say, we wish we would have spent the entire time at Hacienda Guachipelin. As soon as you get there the front desk staff greets you with enthusiasm and a refreshing drink. The rooms are nice,...

The hotel room was very nice but right up against the area where farm animals were kept so you get the real, ah, smell of the ranch. The restaurant was average. The property and surrounding area had loads to walk and explore which we really enjoyed. We did not do any of the tours but did explore much on our...

We stayed in Suite 2. It was a beautiful, spacious suite with floor to ceiling windows on two sides and a wrap around veranda looking out at nature. The bathroom is very spacious with a large walk-in shower.

Basic rooms on a farm estate but the beds were comfortable and the shower powerful. All you need for one night stop over. Waterfall, horse riding and river tubing all available within a mile or two of the hacienda. Food quite basic but ok.

We wanted to stay inland for a few days before we headed to the coast. This place was a nice hotel to spend a few days. It really isn't close to anything else other than the park and the adventure tours they offer but that is what we wanted. We hiked in the Rincon de la Viejo park the first...

Thank you for your comments deemarie25. The bugs are a situation of the wind, they come down from the mountain top, sorry about that. One of the main attractions in the area is the National Park with the volcanic activity and the waterfalls. We are glad to know that you had a good stay at Guachipelin. Pura Vida !!!!

This is a great choice. A large Costa Rican owned hotel. They offer horse rides, zip lines, river tubing, hot springs, National Park with fumaroles on the volcano. The food is very good, buffet style. There is a bar with other food options also. The short walk to the viewpoint is beautiful! Highly recommend! We did the zip line, rappel,...
