Rincón de La Vieja

Rincon de la Vieja National Park offers a heady mix of rolling green hills, gushing waterfalls and lush forests. The park attracts travellers year-round who come to explore its hot springs, bubbling muds and picture-perfect waterfalls.

Rincon de la Vieja means “The Old Woman’s Corner” and was named after a local legend, which tells of a girl’s lover who was thrown into the volcano by her father. It’s said the woman became a recluse and developed healing powers, living out her days on the slopes of Rincon de la Vieja.
