Set off into this magical paradise for Eco-adventure tours into the jungle to discover grand waterfalls and the blue rivers by going zip lining, water tubing, horseback riding, white water rafting, hiking and more - all of it within close proximity.

Most visitors to Costa Rica will travel into and through Liberia (via the airport or by car), many staying at Guanacaste beach hotels or traveling to Nicaragua, which is a dry, hot savannah. Blue River Resort & Hot Springs offers an authentic Costa Rica experience located about an hour by car or shuttle from Liberia. The location is a lush cool green rainforest, with panoramic views of the volcano, jungles, grand waterfalls and blue volcanic rivers.
