Hot Springs Options

Eco Termales Hot Springs (included in this tour package)

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.

Baldi Hot Springs 

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.

The 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).
