Rincon de la Vieja, Liberia, Costa Rica

The basics

Guides lead visitors on an exploration of the park's private rain forest reserve, offering historical trivia on robotic residents like a Triceratops, Velociraptor, and the king of them all—a towering Tyrannosaurus rex. Guests are welcome to pose in front of the robots for playful, Instagram-worthy photos. The park is part of the popular Blue River Resort, featuring spas, mineral hot springs, mud baths, and adventures like zipline and horseback riding tours.

Day trips to Dino Park depart from cities around Costa Rica and usually include a tour of the park, a hot springs soak, and other activities like a hike along the nearby Penjamo River.
