The family owned and operated natural hot springs, which allow only a limited number of guests each day, provide a private, relaxing oasis during your vacation.There are five pools, one with a cascading waterfall, which reach up to 108 degrees Fahrenheit. There is no better way to unwind after a long day than by visiting the hot springs and treating your body to its naturally replenishing effects. When taking a break from the soothing hot springs, you can dine in the authentic, home-style Costa Rican restaurant.

This was one of my favorite activities my husband and I did while in the area. The place reminds me of an old hippie compound, like going back in time, but in a really good way. It was a really neat day and the water was great...and the frozen drinks 😆

You have a few options as to which temperature of water you'd prefer to relax in. The third area/pool has a corner near the building where the temperature is bit higher than others areas. It is not in the waterfall area but in the area of water after the falls. There also seemed to be people sitting (for quite some... More

It was a cozy spa. It was a nice experience overall, I'd recommend getting there when your time window either begins or an hour before it ends, that way there isnt too much a crowd.

This is a beautiful spot. It may not have as many hot springs as other places but it is so beautiful and secluded that it is perfect. And the fact that they limit the number of guests makes it the most enjoyable, romantic place ever. The waterfall they have leading into the different pools is something you only dream of... More

My husband and I spent a very relaxing afternoon at Ecotermales and really enjoyed it. There are five pools to chose from which are set in the open rainforest. It cost $34 per person without food. For those looking for a quiet relaxed atmosphere at a more reasonable price Ecotermales is a good option.

We intentionally chose this place so we wouldn't have to deal with a crowd even though it may be smaller are were delighted with our decision. In our time allocation there were 3-4 couples who came and went and 1 small family besides ourselves. Basically we felt like we had the place to ourselves. The setting was gorgeous, the pools...

This hot springs was so relaxing, there are few different pools, but if you go to the top, there is a fall which you can get a personal massage. This is a very clean area, the water was so nice and warm, not too hot, there is a lovely walk through the woods, you can also buy a drink and... More

This was an amazing place that we visited after a day of nature hiking. The water is so warm (about 103 degrees F) and the waterfalls make it so beautiful and tranquil. There were only a few people there when we went, which was great! When you buy a ticket you have a four-hour window to visit but we went... More
