Tabacon Hot Springs, Costa Rica

Tabacon 35

Hello Fellow Travelers,

This past month my husband and I got the chance to visit the hot springs at the Tabacon Resort. Sitting in the middle of the lush cloud-forest, with a beautiful view of the Arenal volcano, this is one of the most pristine and beautiful places in Costa Rica. They have a number of different hot springs, each designed in a unique way with a different water temperature and mineral content. The ambiance is very natural with trees all around and volcanic rocks and sand at the bottom of the hot springs. The water is naturally heated from the volcano and flows all through the resort.

You can choose to stay at the Tabacon Resort which is right in front of the hot springs with some very luxurious rooms. In that case, visiting the hot springs is free. Else, they have various options for a day pass which includes a full day at the hot springs with an amazing meal. Upon arrival, they give you a locker and a towel. The changing room is well equipped with showers and a water strainer for your wet clothes. Once you are ready, you can walk up to the various hot springs and explore.  Everywhere in the resort it looks like heaven on earth. Look at the pictures below for proof 🙂
