This is just one of the waterfalls in Rincon de la Vieja National Park. Rincon de la Vieja ecompasses an ecologically diverse and traditional area. It makes sense that there would be a lot of waterfalls in the park because it rises from coastal plains to volanic mountains, with cloud forests and lush vegetation in the higher altitudes. Those conditions have created 32 rivers cascading down the volcanic terrain.

Rincon de la Vieja has many hiking trails, and I have shown photos from some of those trails in the past. The photos can be accessed through the index of this blog site. The trails lead past lush vegetation, bubbling steam pots and volcanic geothermal activity, and waterfalls such as this one. Tour guides will pick up visitors in Tamarindo to drive them to the park and lead them on the hikes, for those who prefer to be accompanied by a guide.

Now here is something I truly remember. What a beautiful spot to visit. The horseback ride and hike in there was a fun adventure.
