Do you enjoy relaxing in a hot bath after a long day at work? What if this bath had therapeutic qualities, making you feel better every time you took a dip? Now, imagine that this bath is surrounded by a tropical forest canopy, waterfalls, and a wide array of exotic birds and animals. This is what you’ll find when visiting Arenal Hills in Costa Rica.
Costa Rica is home to five active volcanoes that make hot springs a popular attraction. Although thermal water pools exist in various areas throughout the country, the majority and the most popular ones are located in the La Fortuna or Arenal region, thanks to the Arenal Volcano situated nearby. What could possibly be better than soaking in natural thermal waters heated to therapeutic temperatures by a volcano? Here is a list of some of the most popular hot springs that you must visit during your next trip to Costa Rica:
- Tabacon Grand Thermal Spa
It is one of the first hot springs resorts in the Arenal region that is situated in a rainforest near the Arenal Volcano. There are two natural rivers divided into a number of bathing areas. Here you can also find secret bars, private spaces, a water slide, and a swim-up bar offering delicious cocktails.
- Arenal Springs
One of the best in Costa Rica, this spa resort offers you a five-star experience. This resort’s hot springs are absolutely natural because they reach the pool from the underground sources of Arenal Volcano. The water is naturally heated and is rich in mineral salts.
- Baldi Hot Springs
There are more than 25 thermal mineral hot water pools in this resort that originate from the base of the Arenal Volcano. The size, shape, and temperature of water in each pool vary. On clear days, the pools provide anice view of the volcano.
