The Hacienda Guachipelin is a great destination for nature lovers. Can be very active with hikes and horseback riding, and can also find peace and relaxation. My son and I arrived w/o a vehicle; the Hacienda provides transportation to various parts of the park for hikes as well as to their own hot springs on the Rio Negro, and to the Symbiosis Spa. Massages are available at the hot springs and the Spa and can be arranged in your room, too. Bring US cash with you - you'll need it for Park admission (kids pay less) and if you want a massage or to get into the Symbiosis Spa. Wish we could have stayed longer and taken advantage of their guided hikes/horseback rides. Enjoyed the all-day 'adventure' deal - TONS of fun, with time for getting changed as needed (horseback riding to tubing, for ex) and free lockers. Grounds and rooms are lovely. With all the windows (with screens!) we never needed the AC, just the ceiling fan. The buffet was good, but rather forces you to pay more than most places - but then again, the level of staffing required for everything to be as lovely and as well-maintained as it is does take $$. Don't miss seeing the volcanic 'action' in the Park!!
