What to expect
On the north side of the Rincon de la Vieja Volcano in Guanacaste, dry rolling plains give way to lush, tall, green rainforest, home of the Sensoria private nature reserve. Welcome to Sensoria’s enchanted paradise of gushing waterfalls, sky blue streams, warm thermal springs, ornate orchids, and wild earth overflowing with dense rainforest where jaguars and tapirs roam.
On this extraordinary Guanacaste excursion, you will hike with a naturalist guide through the jungle to hidden waterfalls and pools where you can swim: the electric blue Aguilar Waterfall, the 20-meter-high bright blue Buenos Aires (“Good Winds”) Waterfall, beautiful La Jícara Waterfall, the warm natural thermal springs of Dantas Waterfall, and finally to the crystal-clear thermal Pilón Pool in the middle of the rainforest. Pilón pool is where you’ll want to stop and soak forever, listening to the relaxing murmur of warm water falling over stones.
Along your journey, hopefully you will see some of Costa Rica’s famed wildlife protected in this private reserve at the base of the Rincón de la Vieja Volcano. After a 3 to 4 hour walk learning about the rainforest’s mysteries and creatures, you’ll return to the dining hall for lunch made with fresh local ingredients.
