Thanks PhilH1 for your comment.
We are working of the WiFi issue and for some reason we can't seem to get it right in all rooms. Some rooms seem to work ok and others don't. The good thing is that the speed is pretty good...More

The hotel will provide transportation to the park, and you can hike all the trails on your own if you're so inclined. The trails are very well marked and you are given a map when you pay the entrance fee, so it's all well planned. You also have to sign in and indicate where you plan to hike, so the park people know you're there, and where you should be.
The volcano is not within hiking distance, and there are no trails to it (but there are plenty of things to see there instead--and there are several other volcanoes in CR you can go see).
Hello. It's not necessary. Guachipelin provides transportation to the national park, oropendula waterfalls and the hot springs. At the adventure office transportation is provided for the other activities.
