My wife went to Hacienda Guachipelin with our friend Sharon (who does Phoenix Daily Photo) and I went there with my two sons. My wife and I did different activities, however, as she and Sharon hiked to a waterfall and the volcanic fumaroles and did a horseback ride. She did not do the canyon zip lines or the tubing trip that I have shown during the past several weeks, although she and Sharon did zip lines closer to Tamarindo.
Hacienda Guachipelin is next to Rincon de la Vieja National Park. Rincon de la Vieja has volcanoes with craters as high as 1,800 m. (6,250 ft), active bubbling volcanic activity, 32 rivers with many waterfalls, and abundant plant and animal life.
