Miravalles Waterfalls Tour & Crater Volcano
This trip is still almost a secret and takes us to one of Guanacaste's most active volcanoes: The Miravalles! An untamed mountain covered in rainforest and letting us safely visit the only walkable crater in Costa Rica. Our day on this trip is very diverse. Along our drive to the volcano we will visit one of the country's most beautiful waterfalls and if you liked to, you can bring your swimsuits and swim under the majestic water curtain. Our next stop will be the crater at Miravalles where we will see lots of geothermal activity and sense the mighty power from below us. We will have a volcanic mud bath and relax in the hot springs before lunch and then we will experience the tropical rainforest on a moderate hike along some breathtaking hanging-bridges and three more waterfalls! This is a day of waterfalls and volcano and is already one of our favorites!

Bubbling mud pools: The bubbling mud pools are holes that contain clay mud. These mud pools, which also have sulfured thermal waters, all have different temperature
s:176º, 212º and 392º F (80º, 100º and 200ºC). This mud is odorless and can be found in three different colors: gray, brown and yellow. The coloration indicates how deep the pool is: The brown mud indicates a depth of two meters, the gray mud a depth of one meter and the yellow mud indicates the mud is from the surface and is full of sulfur.
You can select the clay in which you want to bath and then obtain it from the bubbling mud pool. Whilst waiting 15 or 20 minutes for the clay to cool you down, you can enjoy one of the greatest marvels in the world. After bathing in this volcanic mud your skin will be left feeling fresh and smooth.
