Resident animals and birds offer additional photo opportunities.
Now it’s time to kick back in thermal pools with warm mud

Miravalles, standing at 6,653 feet (2,028 m), the highest peak in the Guanacaste Mountains (Cordillera de Guanacaste). Although a dormant volcano, Miravalles has earned protective status due to its surrounding tropical vegetation and geological activity: steam spewing fishers, sulfur springs, and bubbling mud pools. An underground reservoir is the site of a geothermal energy plant at Las Hornillas that converts resident steam to electricity. The project is run by the Institute of Electricity, which accepts inquiring minds interested in visiting the project at the base of Miravalles.
