Create an itinerary including 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. Put Tabacon Hot Springs on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our La Fortuna de San Carlos trip maker app.

  • We bought a day pass and went following the hanging bridges around 5-8pm. While pricey, the grounds are very well kept, great views, and fun to look for new pools and temperatures. Some larger groups....  more

  • This place is magical! It feels like you are out in a river in nature, but have the cleanliness and upkeep of a pool. The water temperature is perfect and the atmosphere is so relaxing! The spa was lovely too, with a nice sitting area and hot tub. The locker rooms were a little small, but you don’t spend much time in there so it was fine. The massage I had was one of the best I’ve ever experienced. And once again the staff was so friendly.
  • It's a magical place to spend the afternoon at. It costs $89 with lunch included. The hot springs with lots of waterfalls and pools are amazing, well worth the money. Secured parking on site. Restroom, changing rooms with shower and lockers provided. Included meal was delicious with multiple options, appetizers and main course. Definitely would recommend it
