Went here just for the hot springs as part of G Adventures "Costa Rica Quest" tour. After a day of rafting and kayaking, it was just what my muscles needed! Water is very warm & seemed clean. There is a swim-up bar where you can get a piña colada served in an entire pineapple, and some (very fast) waterslides. Life... More

I loved this place. We went for lunch and then spent the day in and out of the water for hours. They have warm, hot and cold pools. I went on the water slide and what a rush! I spent a good hour afterwards watching other middle-aged adults such as myself trying it out. The look of surprise as they... More

I can’t believe I was so fortunate to have gone here! After a fun time zip lining, I went here to have some rest and relaxation. After getting changed, I immediately went to the first water slide, which is right across from the bathroom facilities. It caught me off guard because it the water was so warm, but it was... More

What an awesome experience this was. I had never really thought about zip lining before, but when the idea was proposed I had no idea what to expect. There were 12 lines and you got to go really fast over a beautiful view. The only reason I would say don’t do it is if you are afraid of heights because... More

My experience at Los Lagos was absolutely incredible. We did the day pass zip lining and then going to the resort. The resort was gorgeous and had plenty of pools to swim in. The waterslides were a blast and the hot spring pools felt great. Zip lining was intense but I was able to face my fears and enjoy the... More

Best ziplining ever. Instead of the typical hold onto the line, we ziplined upside down and superman style with a guide holding our legs. Absolutely best tour ever! Antonio is a gem of a person and went the extra mile to make sure my friends and I had a great time! William, Bryan, Miguel, and Diego were also a blast,... More

Don't stay here. Stay anywhere else. The rooms have not been updated since 1970 with wood paneling. The pool bar is a scene from Jersey Shore. This place will make you hate the Arenal area which you shouldn't.
