Hiking in the Rincon de la Vieja National Park
is an adventure you must do while you are staying in Guanacaste
. The journey is even better when your destination is the magnificent Cangreja (Crab) Waterfall.
Spilling 130 feet (40 meters) in a white ribbon of water out of the green forest, the Cangreja Waterfall forms a clear blue pool at its base. Dissolved copper minerals from the volcano give the water its sky blue color.
The only way to get to this waterfall is by hiking 3 miles (5 km) into the national park. Your bilingual naturalist guide will point out any wildlife along the way, like monkeys, white-nosed coatis, armadillos, agoutis, iguanas, and birds such as the Blue-crowned Motmot or Emerald Toucanet. You will enjoy a picnic lunch by the waterfall, where you can swim.
