Bagaces is a town in Guanacaste, located off the Panamerican highway. It’s between two of the major nature preserves in Guanacaste, El Rincón and Parque Nacional Palo Verde. Although the town is quite small, it is near some striking natural attractions, making it well worth a visit. These attractions are (for now) off the beaten path, so it’s unlikely you’ll have to compete with crowds.
Take a bumpy road to the Bagaces Waterfall (also known as Llanos de Cortés), just a few minutes away from Bagaces by car or bus. This enormous waterfall is 50-feet (15-m) wide. You’ll be asked to make a small donation to the local school as an entrance fee. Bring a swimming suit so you can swim around the clear water near the waterfall. After your swim, sunbathe on the nearby rocks as you take in the roar of the falling water.
Río Perdido is Bagace’s number one attraction for adventure travelers. White water rafting is a popular activity here. On the grounds surrounding the river, you’ll find trails that wind through dense forest. There are canyons near the trails that are ripe for an afternoon of exploration. Visitors can bike and hike through the trails, and zip-line through the forest’s canopy.
