What To Expect

After morning pickup at your Liberia hotel, depart the dry coastal savannah for the lush rain forest on the north side of the Rincon de la Vieja volcano. Nestled among this tropical landscape is the Blue River Resort & Hot Springs, where you’ll be greeted with a welcome cocktail at the spa. Change into your suit the locker rooms, and then take another short drive and walk to a nearby farm and the suitably named Rio Azul (Blue River).

Climb into an inner tube and launch onto the river, floating through canyons and dense forested stretches echoing with the sounds of howler monkeys, birds, and insects. Soak up the tranquil atmosphere along calmer stretches, and hang on tight as you bump and spin down whitewater chutes. At the end of your tubing adventure, return to the resort for a sumptuous lunch.

In the afternoon, enjoy several hours of relaxation among the resort’s many offerings. Stroll through the beautiful botanical gardens featuring more than 700 plant species, see winged wonders at the butterfly and hummingbird gardens, spot reptiles at the caiman and turtle lagoons, or visit the resort’s resident miniature horses and donkeys.

Slip into Costa Rica's pura vida lifestyle with a soak in natural hot springs, a swim in a freshwater pool with a bullet water slide, or a mineral mud bath alongside a river. For an extra dose of pampering, you can purchase a treatment from the resort’s full-service spa. Around 4 pm, collect your belongings and relax on the return drive to your hotel.
