This tour combines four awesome activities in the Arenal area: the Hanging Bridges, the La Fortuna Waterfall, hiking at the Arenal Volcano, and the Baldí Hot Springs.
The tour begins with a 3 kilometer hike (~1.8 miles) at the Hanging Bridges, followed by a hike in the jungle, ending at the La Fortuna Waterfall, where you will have a chance to swim in the pristine pool at the base of the falls. After a lunch in La Fortuna, you will hike through the Arenal Volcano rainforest, which includes a lookout from which you can see lava! Finally, you will visit the Baldi Hot Springs to relax in the natural pools. You will also enjoy a buffet dinner at the hot springs. (Note that you can visit other hot springs as well, instead of Baldi, but this may affect the price; some of the other hot springs options are described below).
Baldi Hot Springs (included in this tour package)
This is a collection of 25 thermal pools, filled by crystal clear waterfalls. With clear, pure water, birds singing, and a deep green natural surrounding, you will immediately relax and rejuvenate in these world class hot springs.
Landscaped pools with incredible views of the Arenal Volcano. Some of the springs are accessed via trails through lush forest, including walking among different species of Heliconias (which look similar to birds of paradise). The springs range in temperature from 83 F to 104 F (28 C to 40 C).
Tabacon Hot Springs
These springs are 97% rain-based and 3% magma-based. The rainwater flows through the earth’s fissures, gets heated by magma in the core, then rises to the surface, bringing earth’s minerals with it to create a natural spring. There are five such springs at Tabacon, completely naturally fed (i.e. no pumps or drills), with temperatures from 77 F to 122 F (25 C to 50 C).
Eco Termales Hot Springs
These naturally-fed volcanic hot springs have five pools, with temperatures ranging from 99° to 106° F (37° to 41° C). Admission to the springs is limited per day and divided into time slots, so it is guaranteed not to be too crowded. The property also has multiple paved and lit trails into the surrounding rainforest, which are perfect for romantic and relaxing strolls in nature.
