Trip Planner: Central America / Costa Rica / Province of Alajuela / Arenal Volcano National Park / La Fortuna de San Carlos / La Fortuna / Tabacon Hot Springs
Soak in the volcanic surroundings at Tabacon Hot Springs, a spa resort in the heart of Costa Rica's rainforest. The five-star complex provides luxurious and relaxing experiences in a natural setting, right at the base of a mighty volcano that destroyed a nearby village in the 1960s. Dormant for the last few decades, the volcano now provides a scenic backdrop for five different hot springs, with temperatures ranging between 25 C (77 F) and 50 C (122 F). Naturally heated by the volcanic soil, a thermal river flows through the resort and forms several small waterfalls and swimming pools. Browse the website for one-day passes, special packages, and onsite accommodations.

My husband and I spent four nights at Tabacon to celebrate our anniversary. It was a truly magical experience. From the little touches they added to help us celebrate (there was a banner attached to our suite door), to the food, to even the daily greetings they gave us, our stay was wonderful. The springs themselves are incredible as well, and the tour company affiliated with the resort was phenomenal. We will definitely visit again. Thank you, Tabacon!
By far my favorite place in Costa Rica, truly paradise. These exquisitely designed hot springs enhance the natural beauty of the surrounding lush landscape. Absolutely breathtaking scenery with plenty of waterfalls to enjoy. Had a magical time swimming around in each thermal pool, especially at night. We stayed at both Tabacon and The Springs Resort, we definitely preferred Tabacon more.
