Day 2: Rio Perdido

The centrepiece of the 600-acre private reserve is the Rio Perdido, which means “lost river”. This 150-foot, thermo-mineral gorge that draws energy from deep magma flows, will cast its spell on anyone that descends to its magical waters for the first time. It’s a completely natural and inspiring setting, unlike any other place on the planet.

Along the riverbed, there are 8 registered springs, from which over 4000 gallons of hot water emanate every minute. At these points, the water is a bit too hot for more than a dip of the foot. But as a result of the spring water mixing with the river’s flow, we have been blessed with dozens of soothing pools, of varying temperatures, that are absolutely perfect for prolonged bathing. And, just upstream from the springs zone, you can actually swim in cool water. In this unique area, you can literally jump between hot and cold mineral water.

Along the Rio Perdido, grows a beautiful forest of Ron Ron, Ojoche, Nispero, Jobo, Ceibo, and Espavel trees that boast canopy heights upwards of 160 feet. This scene makes for a strong contrast with the dwarf forest that grows outside and above the canyon. So there are two very distinct ecosystems occurring adjacent to eachother. The canyons behave like long oases, cutting through the arid forest. This has given way to a very interesting mix of local fauna. You are guaranteed to see all sorts of birds, mammals, reptiles, amphibians and insects.

The trail circuit and a series of bridges, including a 200ft hanging bridge that connects the hotel to the reserve, allow visitors with a sense of exploration to taylor their own unique adventure, each day. There are dozens of destinations within The Reserve. You can opt for a short and easy walk to the Yurro Waterfall or you can challenge yourself with a hike up to Las Tumbas.
