|About these ratings|
If you trek to Arenal Volcano to witness its looming presence for yourself, save time to bathe in the Tabacón's luxurious thermal springs. With its serene flowing waterfalls, tropical foliage, and mineral-rich natural springs, it's no wonder the Tabacón Grand Spa Thermal Resort costs a pretty penny. But its distinguished springs and spa treatments will leave you swooning.
"Like everybody I have only praises for the thermal pools. But on top of that I loved the lush gardens, the beautiful variety of flowers along the winding pathways," raves one TripAdvisor user. The springs comprise 97 percent rain water and three percent magma. And next to the thermal baths, you'll find Tabacón's top-notch Grand Spa, which boasts volcanic mud wraps, coconut and coffee exfoliations, and meditation trails.
You can reach the Tabacón Grand Spa Thermal Resort by car from La Fortuna at the base of Arenal Volcano National Park. A day pass to the hot springs with lunch or dinner provided costs $85 USD; children's admission prices are reduced. Reservations should be made months in advance, particularly if you're planning to visit during peak tourist season. For more information, check out Tabacón Grand Spa Thermal Resort's official website.
