Our group of 23, ranging from 10 months to 63 years, spent a fun day at Vandara, horseback riding, ziplining, going on water slides, enjoying a mud treatment and finally relaxing in the warm mineral springs pool. We also enjoyed a typical Costa Rican snack and full lunch. The staff, the accommodations and the food was very enjoyable.

This was the most energetic tour I have ever done. We started off by seeing and swimming at a beautiful waterfall. Then got on horseback to ride up to the zipline. We had never ziplined before and we were very nervous. BUT, we did it. 10 different lines. Very scary to start. Difficult to try to look around as you... More

My husband, my parents-in-law and I had an incredible day! Horse back riding till the zip line with our guide. Zip line was first time for most of us and we all enjoyed it a lot.

When we signed up for this excursion we had no idea it was going to be so amazing. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and funny which made the trip that much more enjoyable. I would have to say that the zip lining was probably my favourite part and Im afraid of heights. The views from the 10 different lines... More

Vandara Hot Springs can be enjoyed by singles, couples and families With children who are old enough to do the activities but you should be somewhat active to enjoy the hires ride, the zip line and especially the water slide. There is quite a bit of up and down walking involved but well worth it to enjoy the hot springs... More

The Vandara hot springs are part of Rincon de la Vieja national park. Just up the road there is great hiking at all levels of difficulty with views of volcano, venting sulfur, and beautiful waterfalls. The hot springs are fed by the same geothermal heat. Beautiful pools ranging from just warm to hot-as-you-can-stand sit beside a cold rushing stream. Heated... More
