The Hacienda Guachipelin is a ranch full of history and close to the much overlooked Rincon de la Viejo National Park.
Located in the northern Guanacaste province, it has volcanoes, bubbling pools of volcanic mud and waterfalls.
The reception area is over a century old and the oldest part of the working ranch. You can still see the cowboys herding the cattle and visit the ranch’s where they grow their own farm-to-table vegetables and herbs to prepare healthy home-cooked meals.
The 77 ranch-style en suite rooms have views of the Rincon de la Vieja volcano and its extensive gardens. Whether you’re staying in a standard, family room or suite, other than the size, they all have A/C, safe and WiFi and free access to the Rio Negro Hot Springs as well as the hiking trails and waterfalls.
Staying at the ranch is the perfect base for activities like horse riding, a is also the ideal base for hiking, mountain biking and water sport activities like canyoning and wild water tubing. After a long day out you can soak in the mineral-rich hot springs or the swimming pool with natural spring water.
