You will have a volcanic mud bath and relax in the hot springs before lunch and then you will experience the tropical rainforest on a moderate hike along some breathtaking hanging-bridges and three more waterfalls
( Included on the package). This is a day full of waterfalls and volcano experience.
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 temperatures:176, 212 and 392 F (80, 100 and 200C). 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.

    We had a great day being guided by Ranier. He is very knowledgeable about the area and he went out of his way to make sure we had a great time.

    We were traveling with another couple and had decided to book an adventure the four of us could participate in together. The Miravalles tour fit the bill. Carlos was a personable guide, generous with his knowledge and funny as well. Our group did consist of one person who is afraid of heights, so the rope bridge was challenging, but we all made it across, and back! As it turned out, we had the locations pretty much to ourselves the morning we were there, which was great, and the weather held out until we had finished our activities and then the skies opened up. We would highly recommend both the tour (some endurance and cardio is helpful) and Carlos!

    My family and I definitely recommend you taking this tour. We lucked out and received Rainer as our guide. He was so knowledgeable, kind and accommodating to all of our needs. We all learned a lot, not only about The volcano Miravalles, but of the waterfalls, hot springs, and the surrounding towns and lands. We booked our trip last minute (the night before), and even though we received confirmation, we were not 100% it would still go through (do to our late registration). Rainer was at our condo (which we also requested (not listed as one of the main resorts)) promptly at 7:00 am and ready to go. We were the only ones who signed up, so we received a private tour. Again Rainer was so great to speak with, and learn from due to the pride and knowledge he has of his country. The tour itself was a bit more rugged than the other tours we had been on, which we all loved. They were shorter hikes, on a tiny bit more rugged terrain. My 10 year old and 8 year old truly enjoyed the hikes. My 8 year old, who seems to get winded quicker than the rest of us, even mentioned that she enjoyed the hike more than the others we had been on. We crossed suspension bridges, saw beautiful flora, and were overall floored that we were a part of this experience. Once we hiked both trails, we went to the hot springs/volcanic mud baths/water pots/craters. This in itself was its own magical experience, and again Rainer could not have been more accommodating and knowledgeable about the area. Finally we ended our tour with an incredibly delicious traditional Costa Rican lunch at the reception building. Again, my youngest (the pickiest eater of all of us) even enjoyed her chicken, pasta, and gallo pinto. What a beautiful experience from the pickup, to the tour, to the drop off! Do yourself a favor and book this tour.

    My husband and I went on two tours through this company.. The Palo Verde River Safari and the Miravalles with Carlos as our tour guide. Carlos and his teams were great!! Carlos is so knowledgeable and was accommodating throughout!! He ensured that everyone was happy, comfortable and enjoyed themselves. The different teams he worked with were also very caring and accommodating. The lunches provided were great and the rides to and from the locations were comfortable. With all of the information I learned from Carlos, I feel like Costa Ricas model could save the WORLD!!! These are experiences I will never forget. Thank you so much for a wonder experience.

    We had just finished our ATV tour when we learned that Carlos (our ATV tour guide) was also going to be our tour guide to Miravalles and we couldn't be more pleased! Had a lovely trip to the volcano from Playas del Coco and a great adventure from there! Hiking, waterfalls , mud baths, hot springs, hanging bridges, and more! Carlos was also our very our personal photographer and we were able to capture incredible pictures every step of the way. Would recommend this tour and him as a tour guide to anyone visiting the area. You won't be disappointed!!

    My husband & I really enjoyed this excursion! Our tour guide, Manrique was AMAZING! Shared so many things with us about Costa Rica & was great conversation the whole trip. We rode up to the rainforest/waterfall hike in a safari-like truck, which we really enjoyed! The hike was awesome with so many places to overlook many waterfalls & the beautiful rainforest. The hike was just long enough to get the full experience, but not too long that you’re exhausted afterwords. Our guide, Manrique, offered to take so many pictures for us - they turned out great! Once we finished the hike, we rode the Safari truck back to the place where there is a volcanic crater. This is where you take a mud bath & then refresh yourself in the hot springs afterwords. Our skin was actually soft after our mud bath! We finished off this wonderful trip with a delicious lunch that consisted of rice, beans, meat, salad, & plantains. Truly a once in a lifetime experience & would recommend this tour to anyone of all ages!

    Eduardo was a great driver, and the tour was excellent. We saw some beautiful waterfalls and got to walk across some incredible suspended bridges. The lunch was more authentic than our visit to Coco Beach! The mud bath and hot springs were a unique experience.

    The mud bath and sauna were very relaxing, as well as the beauty of the hike and waterfalls. Carlos was great.
