Feel the pure adrenaline of Guanacaste, Costa Rica

Your totally thrilling encounter with the natural world starts out early in the morning with pick-up from your Guanacaste resort aboard an air-conditioned vehicle. The ride takes about an hour and a half, so get comfortable as you travel through the roadways of Costa Rica. Be amazed as you rise higher into the dryer tropical forest while climbing up the mountains near Rincon de la Vieja National Park.

Soon enough, you’ll arrive to the adventure center at a hacienda, where your day of pure adrenaline will kick off. Your hosts and guides will welcome you into this incredible place tucked away in the mountains, with astounding greenery that will take your breath away at every turn. You’ll be briefed about your day ahead before you gear up and get ready for an excursion full of awe-inspiring adventures.

See the greenery of the countryside by horseback

Once you’re ready to go, the first portion of your Pure Adrenaline tour will consist of an unforgettable horseback ride through the Guanacaste countryside. Your bilingual guides will pair you up with the right horse according to your size and skills, and don’t be nervous if it’s your first time riding a horse — no previous riding experience is required for this outing.

As you ride your loyal steed, you'll gallop your way into the forest trail. You’ll be feeling completely inspired by the sights that bow down to the mighty Rincon de la Vieja Volcano. Additionally, watch for some of the 300 bird species that inhabit the area, as well as interesting fauna like iguanas, howler monkeys, spider monkeys and white-nosed coatis.

Go tubing down the river rapids of Rio Negro

Your journey continues through the forest until your horse takes you to the calmer currents of Rio Negro, one of the rivers that cut through the expansive natural area you’ve been exploring. Leave your trusted steed behind, change into your bathing suit and water shoes, then gear up with a helmet to experience the refreshment and excitement of white water rafting in Guanacaste.

Grab an inner tube and follow your expert guide for a glide down Rio Negro’s dynamic currents. You'll float over 3 miles of Class 1 and 2 rapids, which provide a variation of speed and jaggedness to make this an equally thrilling and soaking journey. Your guides will be on hand throughout your aquatic trek to ensure your total safety, and you’ll also pass through gentler pools that will help you admire nature and see why Costa Rica really is like the Garden of Eden in Central America.

Take your exhilaration to the air with a zip lining tour

After you’ve soaked yourself with the excitement of white water rapids, get ready for even more pure adrenaline by going above the legendary canopy of Costa Rica. You’ll go on a high-flying circuit that includes seven exhilarating zip lines that will transport you high above the forest and over the same river upon which you had just made a splash.

Feel the rush as the adrenaline pumps through your body and the wind gushes across your face. Experience a high amount of inspiration by soaring over the wondrous nature inside the mountain ranges that flank the Rincon de la Vieja Volcano, which you might get to view if weather conditions are just right.

More adrenaline with a Tarzan swing and a rock climbing wall

But the fun and elation are not over when you finish your zip line adventure, as there’s even more excitement with even more airborne thrills. Test your bravery by going on two Tarzan swings, which will give you a surge of adrenaline as you move like a pendulum with each round. Then keep your balance as you dare walk through a hanging bridge high above the river.

You can even harness all your energy by taking on a natural rock climbing wall, as well as ‘via ferrata’ climbing routes and traverses over the crags. And you can even descend down a cliff as you hold on to a controlled 65-foot (20-meter) rappel, an activity that will surely unleash the daredevil in you.

Enjoy a Costa Rican buffet lunch made from fresh ingredients

Once you finish your high-flying adventure, return to the ground and head back to the adventure center. To recover from the high doses of adrenaline you’ve felt during your outing, you’ll no doubt need to refuel your energy. Luckily, you’ll get to enjoy a buffet lunch that features traditional Costa Rican food, offering plenty of choices that highlight the flavor of this Central American paradise.

The menu is especially designed to feature farm-to-table meals, using only the freshest ingredients that mostly come from the restaurant’s own gardens. Plus, rest assured that there will be a selection of vegetarian, vegan, gluten-free and dairy-free options as well. When you finish your meal, say goodbye to your hosts and hop back on your vehicle for the ride back to your resort, giving you time to reflect on all the thrilling memories you’ve made on your unforgettable, high-adrenaline day.
