About nine pools of varying temperature and size, all are tiled. Entire park is spotless. Plenty of covered picnic areas with electric outlets, and grilling areas for wood or charcoal. Bring in your own food and save $. We have been to this park five times so far, and it is our family's favorite. Certainly the best value.

Avoid unless you intend to bring your electrical grill, your towels and have no intention to sit and relax. Oh, and watch your bags at all times, and no, there are no lockers. And virtually no shade. Yes, it's cheaper than most, but pay more, get more.

I was looking for a budget friendly hot springs to experience with my husband and children (ages 6 and 10)...we found it! This place was great! It had 8-9 hot springs all ranging in temperature, size and ambiance. Several of the springs looked like simple pools but the water was wonderful. A few of the pools were made with rocks,... More

Nice, hot water in several pools, They also have regular pools with slides for the kids. You can take your own food and drinks into the park. Several families had crock pots going while they swam.

This place has the essentials; hot pools, changing room with showers and toilets. There is a few different pools, but I assume it can be crowded in the worst tourist season. They offer lockers, but they did not inform us of this when we entered, so we did not get to pay for it. It may feel more natural to... More

in a tourist town known for hot springs and water parks....a family can have their budget stretched. Los Laureles is the answer. Large beautiful tiled pools with varying degrees of water from warm to very warm...two big water slides and all heated by the big volcano in the background. A VERY big plus is the availability of parking your car... More

Living in Costa Rica I knew there had to be a "hot springs for locals". This is it! They have cold water pools with fun slides for the kids and different temp thermal pools to relax your tired muscles. Each rancho has a grill and a security box for your stuff. At $12 for adults and $6 for kids/seniors there... More

Everything here was very well organized and quite a bit cheaper than the big name hot springs, well laid out and security was not a problem
