Vandará is your destination to enjoy authentic Costa Rican experiences. In the heart of the natural rainforest environment, dive into our biodiversity, rivers, and canyons teeming with incredible wildlife.

Located on the slopes of the Rincon de la Vieja Volcano and within the rainforest, Vandará allows you to experience nature, culture, and your sense of adventure.

In the modernized world, people tend to disconnect from nature; at Vandará, our goal is to “re-connect” our visitors with nature. Explore and experience authentic Costa Rica, where you will find a serene sense of well-being.

Explore it all with us: Thermal hot springs on the banks of the Tizate River, mineral mud baths, hanging bridges, a jungle water slide, horseback riding, canopy, tropical orchards, bird watching, butterfly gardens, hiking trails, a curated cultural experience, and an organic garden.

Awesome adventure!

Great experience from the hotel pickup until the very end. All the guides were super helpful and very patient with a few in our group that were nervous. I had an amazing time and would 100% recommend.

Great day at Vandara

Amazing place! Lunch was incredible! Horseback riding up the mountain! Zip lining 8 courses with fun and amazing guides! They made us laugh and kept it fun! The waterfalls, massage and hot springs were excellent as well! Definitely a place to visit!

Exciting adventure that won’t disappoint!!!

This was my husband’s and my second time here and the first time for the other two couples that joined us this time. It was just as fun as the first time and the other two couples, really had a blast! With 8 lines to zip down, you won’t be disappointed!!! The hot springs are nice and relaxing and the food is delicious. If you’re feeling adventurous you should slide down the concrete water slide-lots of fun but a bit scary at the same time (you feel like you’re going to get launched out! Lol).

All of the above

We had a wonderful time at your adventure park!! The staff are amazing! Antonio was amazing with our son, he was afraid to do the zip line so Antonio went with him! Our son had the time of his life and felt far more comfortable with Antonio by his side.

Awesome experience!

Great massage with incredible atmosphere in nature! The buffet lunch was incredible as well as the complimentary drinks! We enjoyed the mud body masks as we let it dry in the sun and rinse off in the cool river. The hot springs felt great after the river! The coffee was amazing, and everyone was so nice and welcoming! Thank you for a great experience!!
