What to expect
  • This is a full day adventure tour near Rincon de la Vieja National Park. Saddle up! Upon arrival at this adventure/nature park, the day begins with a horseback ride (or for non-riders, a tractor-drawn wagon ride). Your trusty steed will provide smooth transport through lush forested trails. Keep your eyes open for some of the local fauna such as deer, armadillos, raccoons, anteaters and tropical birds. Our destination is the forest canopy. Here you have the choice of continuing with the horseback ride back to the starting point or participating in the zip line canopy tour. If you choose the zip line, you’ll be fitted with all the essential equipment and safety gear and receive instruction from your knowledgeable guide. The canopy tour consists of 11 platforms of varying height, allowing for different vantage points as you glide over trees and the Tizate River. For the really adventurous, you’ll want to try the Tarzan Swing, located on the top of a cliff almost 80 feet above the forest. Time to get wet! Your guide will take you to the top of perhaps the longest water slide you have ever seen. For non-stop fun, climb into your inner tube, don your helmet and glide down this 1,300 foot water slide, leading to a pool where you’re sure to make a splash. After all this activity, it’s time to soothe those tired muscles in a rich volcanic mud bath or wade in the hot springs. Enjoy the 115 degree pool, guaranteed to melt your troubles away. We’re sure you’re more than ready for lunch and we provide a gourmet meal at the on-site restaurant, showcasing organic produce harvested from their garden. And finally, a tour of the organic farm that produced part of our lunch is in order. Practicing sustainable farming methods, the farm grows a wide variety of plants, including tomatoes, radishes, pineapple, mango and peanuts. We’ll see livestock raised here and learn how animals are used to assist the farmers with everyday tasks.

The Most Amazing
What an amazing day. Steven picked us up (12 of us including 8 kids) from Playa Flamingo and we spent a full day at Rincon de la Vieja doing it all.

River rapid float, zip lining, horse riding, waterfalls and more.

Steven is a blast to talk to (he knows everything about CR) and he escorted us through the park which was unexpected and amazing. Our own personal guide.

My advice: do it!!!

Adventure and Afternoon Pampering!
Nov. 2018 • Friends
El Coco Tours has worked hard to curate this!
Transport: Their vans are airconditioned and they even have wifi. Very safe drivers and secure vehicles.
Horseback Riding: When we arrived at Rincon de la Vieja we were treated with the utmost professionalism by the staff. The horseback riding was a one of a kind experience with spectacular views. The horses were well taken care of the guides were full of fun facts and information!
Zip Lining: WOW! We were given lots of time to ask questions and learn how to use the equipment. The lines are secure and the staff really know what they are doing. It was spectacular and so much fun!
Lunch: Huge buffet lunch. They were generous with drinks and the restaurant was clean.
Mud/Spa: After the adventures. It was so nice to relax in the heated pools. The mud was warm and it was so relaxing.
This trip is very well priced. Don't waste your time with other operators. This is a top notch operation.
