Overnight Hike under stars to watch Perseid Meteor Shower!

We have the privilege of celebrating one of the best showers of shooting stars of the year with #ticosmontañeando.

As every year in August, the star shower illuminates the sky with the dance of thousands of tiny particles coming from the 109P / Swift-Tuttle comet, these are the famous PERSEIDES or LÁGRIMAS DE SAN LORENZO.

The height of the shower occurs on Protected content , with ideal conditions of total absence of the moon, as it will be just starting the new phase. In addition we will be able to see the planets JUPITER, SATURN and MARS which will accompany us throughout the night, standing out in the sky as bright "stars".

The tour group will start the activity with a small talk about The "Perseids" what they are, where they come from, how to observe them, why they always occur at the same time. The main objective of our visit is to observe, learn to identify and recognize some of the main constellations and their stars, then we will use telescopes to observe the planets (weather permitting).

Join us on a night of astronomical observation in one of the places with the best views of Costa Rica, Cerro Pelado Cañas Guanacaste (Extinct Volcano) We will learn a little about the stars, planets, galaxies and nebulas and then contemplate a sunrise with breathtaking views in " the pampa "Guanacaste.

What do you expect to learn about this beautiful place? COME WITH YOUR FRIENDS, FAMILY OR COUPLE 👨👩👧👧💑 and if you are a lover of adventure and you like traveling alone, get ready to meet new friends and enjoy these beautiful spaces that nature gives us.🦂⛰️

The activity is outdoors, we recommend including in your packages: Repellent focus, sleeping or cloth to sit on the floor to see the stars, raincoat, comfortable shoes, water, something to nibble and share. Adequate astronomical observation should be done as comfortably as possible and keeping this warm will make us much more comfortable. In addition, during an astronomical observation it is still so the body hardly generates heat is not like walking or walking in the forest, circumstances in which we are in continuous movement and therefore generate much body heat.
