We are delighted to introduce our newest addition to the adventure lineup: the mountain biking tour at Hotel Hacienda Guachipelin, situated in the heart of the Rincon de la Vieja National Park. Prepare to embark on an unforgettable journey along single track trails that cater to riders of all levels, from beginners to experts.
At Hotel Hacienda Guachipelin, we pride ourselves on maintaining an impressive network of 30 kilometers of trails and single track paths, all shaded and offering breathtaking views. These exclusive trails are found nowhere else in Costa Rica, as they traverse the slopes of an active volcano. Thanks to the higher altitude, the climate in this area is refreshingly cool, making your biking experience even more enjoyable compared to coastal trails.
You'll drive along a mesmerizing single track, surrounded by lush forests and a serene river. Starting at an altitude of 500 meters, you'll find these trails shaded and pleasantly cool. As you immerse yourself in nature's embrace, keep an eye out for encounters with fascinating wildlife such as monkeys, capuchin monkeys (also known as white-faced monkeys), coatis, armadillos, and peacocks.
Our route leads you to the enchanting La Oropendola waterfall, where you can take a refreshing dip in its inviting waters. From there, you'll continue your journey through the tropical forest, bordering the Rincon de la Vieja National Park. You'll traverse several bridges, some spanning rivers, before eventually returning to the comfort of Hotel Hacienda Guachipelin.
To ensure the best experience possible, we provide high-quality mountain bikes at Hacienda Guachipelin, including both front suspension and dual suspension options. You can rest assured that our equipment is designed to handle the demands of the terrain, allowing you to fully enjoy your biking adventure.
