Natural Hot Springs in Costa Rica
Costa Rica has nearly 200 volcanic formations, 100 or so of which show signs of volcanic activity, and five that are classified as active volcanoes: Arenal, Poás, Rincón de la Vieja, Irazú, and Turrialba. As a result there are multiple natural hot springs located around the country which are safe enough to bath in. Formed by volcanic springs heated underground and returned to the surface, the Costa Rica hot springs offer travelers the opportunity to relax and renew in mineral-laden water. Here, magma or lava has worked its way up through the Earth’s crust to relatively shallow depths below the surface. Ground water percolates downward, comes in contact with the hot rock and is heated. As the water returns to the surface, it collects into pools known as hot springs.
Tabacon Grand Spa Thermal Resort is home to one of the only completely natural hot springs that is present within a resort in the Arenal/La Fortuna area. The hot springs of Tabacon do not use any pumps or re-heating systems. The springs range in temperature from 25-50 Celcius/77-122 Fahrenheit. There are multiple different pools to choose from and even an adult-only area called Shangri La Gardens. Guests can enjoy a warm and relaxing bath in mineral rich waters while being surrounded by lush native vegetation at Tabacon.
The Springs Resort and Spa is one of the top luxury resorts in La Fortuna, with quite a few natural hot springs on the property for guests to enjoy. The resort is split up into two sections, La Lagunas and Perdido Springs. La Lagunas has eight hot spring pools that have varying temperatures between 28.3-40 Celcius/83-104 Fahrenheit. Perdido Springs is a beautiful maze of garden trails and hot spring pools. This part of the resort is usually a bit more tranquil.
Eco Thermales hot springs is located on a privately owned and family operated property; it is one of the few in the La Fortuna area that is not part of a large resort. A limited number of guests are admitted to the springs at any given time, so those who visit here can expect a more peaceful and even romantic atmosphere. The springs offer total thermal and mineral rejuvenation in a beautiful rainforest setting.
Titoku hot springs is one of the smaller locations in the Arenal area, thus making it an ideal option for those looking to get away from the crowd and unwind in a more serene setting. Non-hotel guests can purchase a day pass at Arenal Kioro to the eight pools which vary in size and temperature. Maximum capacity of the hotel and hot springs is 80 people, so it’s rare that you’ll find the pools to be over-crowded.
Baldi Hot Springs just 1.6 mi from the Arenal Volcano, the Baldi Hot Springs Hotel & Spa offers 25 thermal pools, waterslides, landscaped gardens, air-conditioned suites, and parking. The stylish suites at the Baldi Hot Springs Hotel feature free Wi-Fi, flat-screen cable TV, a coffee maker and mini-bar. The private bathrooms come with free toiletries, bathrobes and slippers.
