Authentically Costa Rican, and authentically Guanacasteco. Hacienda Guachipelin is a unique eco-tourism destination in Costa Rica.
Families, couples, groups and day visitors find an amazing selection of fun activities and adventure tours to enjoy at Hacienda Guachipelin. Our location is unparalleled at the foot of the towering, active Rincón de la Vieja Volcano in Guanacaste, Costa Rica. Owned by the Batalla family for more than 40 years, our 3,400-acre traditional ranch encompasses exotic dry tropical forest bordering the Rincón de la Vieja National Park and World Heritage Site, the Guanacaste Conservation Area.
Experience volcanic activity like no other volcano in Costa Rica at Rincón de la Vieja. Natural hot springs, bubbling volcanic mud pits, steaming fumaroles, mini-geysers, and jungle waterfalls put on the most spectacular show of any volcano in the country.
Each of our 64 down-to-earth ranch-style rooms feature beautiful handcrafted Guanacaste hardwood furniture and comfortable details that allow you to relax amid the sounds of nature. Our century-old ranch is outfitted with current amenities including Wi-Fi, fresh spring water flowing from all taps, an expansive restaurant serving authentic Costa Rican cuisine, and our on-site Adventure Center offering more than 20 adventure tours and nature tours right on our ranch and in the national park.
Our family is proud to give you an authentic experience of our Costa Rica and Guanacaste culture and traditions. Delight in seeing corn tortillas made the old-fashioned way by hand, or our traditional Costa Rican oxcart making its rounds daily at the noon hour, or our real Guanacaste cowboys tending to our horses and cattle along with our trusty ranch dogs. Be sure to take our archaeology tour, curated by a University of Costa Rica archaeologist, to learn about the discoveries of ancient peoples who lived on our land. Visit our Butterfly Garden and Serpentarium to see exotic native species.
For a real Costa Rica experience and an active vacation at the Rincón de la Vieja Volcano, Hotel Hacienda Guachipelin is your ideal place to stay. Located only 15.5 miles (25 km) northeast of Guanacaste’s main city of Liberia, we are easily accessible from the Liberia International Airport.
