Enjoy world class hot springs and lush jungle scenery at the Tabacon Hot Springs. And did I mention that its locate right in front of the iconic Arenal Volcano?
At around 5:30 you will be picked up from your La Fortuna area hotel and brought to the famous hot springs resort. After checking in for the evening pass, you will have access to the hot springs and facilities. The resort offers clean locker rooms and changing areas, so bring along a little extra cash for a locker. Its well worth the money.
The Tabacon hot springs originate in the depths below Arenal Volcano. As rainwater is absorbed and filters down through fissures it makes its way down to the magma chambers which are closer to the surface at the volcano. The magma heats the water, making it rise to the surface, collecting minerals along the way. This results in three mineral rich hot springs that flow through the Tabacon property. The springs are then diverted into smaller springs and pools that vary in temperature, shape and size.
The various pools and springs that can be enjoyed in the resort range in temperature from 77 to 122 degrees Fahrenheit. There are many to choose from so finding your own place is rarely an issue unless you are there during the peak season.
Those that want to share the fun with others can enjoy the hot springs fed swimming pools. They even have a waterslide for kids!
During your visit to the resort you will be provided with dinner at the Ave del Paraiso Restaurant which is located near the main pool area. This is a buffet style meal that usually features a nice selection. We recommend setting the earliest available time slot when you check in. Earlier times usually result in a better and fresher selection.
After relaxing and bathing at the Tabacon hot springs for approximately four hours (subject to change) you will be returned back to your hotel. We recommend working out your ideal pick up time with the guide before he drops you off.
