This is not only a hotel, it is a hacienda. Let me help you with a definition of a hacienda from wikipedia:
Hacienda ... is a Spanish word for an estate. Some haciendas were plantations, mines or factories. Many haciendas combined these productive activities.
The area of hacienda guachipelin is really huge. As you can see on the lower map you can do a lot of different activities like a canopy tour, zip-lining, canoying tour, visit a waterfall or hot springs and of course visit the Rincon de la Vieja national park. You can stay at this hotel for a few days and never get bored.
The hotel rooms are really big and equiped with air condition, a private bath and a fan. The hotel is split into several small buildings gathered in the center of the huge hacienda area. Even if there are many tourists at the area it does not feal like filled up with people.
They even have a great bar with good cocktails and drinks. Try the "guaro sour".

Rincon de la Vieja national park

While still on the hacienda you can use your car to drive the the ranger station of the national park. From the main building this will take like 10 minutes. On the sides of the road you can see some geothermal energy systems they are doing experiments with.

Entrance to the park is 10 dollars. You can walk on some trails through the forrest untill you find some of the hot springs, steam fountains and mud volcanos. A very bizarre area! Keep distance from the small volcanos and steam fountains. This is very hot and should not be underestimated.
