Buena Vista is located near by Rincon de la Vieja National Park.
In the Buena Vista Canopy & Spa Tour you will delight in the primary forest on a different way: trails built up in the top of the trees (about 105 feet high). A small walk takes you to the first platform, from there you start swinging to the other 12 platforms, which are connected by 9 cables from 150 to 400 feet long.
During the Buena Vista canopy, that takes almost three hours, you will have the chance to observe the surrounding forest from a new perspective…. just like Tarzan!!
Cool off on the 1500 ft. long water slide, and then horseback ride to the hot springs, steam baths and natural spa, located at the slopes of Rincon de la Vieja Volcano.
You might be getting hot by now because of the canopy, so it is time to cool off on the 1200 ft. long water slide.
After having lunch at the Lodge, we begin the third part of the tour: Horseback riding to the thermal waters, steam bath and natural spa, located at the foot of Rincon de la Vieja Volcano. Here, you will enjoy the rejuvenating treatments with volcanic mud and mineral waters.
On your way there you will appreciate the wildlife of a transitional forest ( between dry and rain forest), where you might be able to spot monkeys, squirrels and a variety of butterflies and birds such as woodpeckers and toucans.

Do I need experience to do the horseback ride?
No, the horses are very used to the routes and the tourists and they are very well tamed.
