This place is by far the best resort I have ever been to in my life. I remember going to this place as a little girl with my family, and when I went to La Fortuna a couple of weeks ago with my fiancé I took him here and he feel in love with the place!! It is absolutely stunning... More

My husband and I visited the Baldi Hot Springs on our Arenal Volcano Tour and loved it! The lunch buffet was to die for and the pools are so warm and beautiful! There are 25 pools with varying warm temperatures as well as an assortment of bars, a sauna, waterslides, a kids area, and a spa. It is a great... More

Baldi Hot Springs Resort is one of the classic tourist spots in La Fortuna, Arenal area. It's a place tourists, that visit CR, needs to see and experience. There are different sized & designed pools with bars, lights, music, & some with slides and an enclosed cave like steam area, with varying degrees (literally) of "hotness". The first dip seems...

This area would have been more enjoyable if we would have booked this for an afternoon rather than evening. Depending of the time of year visiting could depend on the temperatures of the many springs. We were there in April and we had showers which cooled off the springs.

We went for the buffet and it was tasteless and bland. The wait staff was friendly. The hot springs themselves were great and the temps were fun.

Loved Baldi thermal spring water park. Not only can you enjoy a ton of pools heated a different temperatures by the waters coming for the volcano, but can enjoy water slides, pool bars, and secluded romantic pools, or simply get a massage in a tent by the river where natural steam and the sound of the water are enough to...

Great evening activity in La Fortuna, of you are seeking a spa-like hotspring. The hot springs are lit up, and have lots of different temperatures, environments, and activities(fastest waterslide I have ever been on). East to find some private space. Bring $10 deposit for towel and $6 for locker. Only downside was techno music from the bar could be heard... More

It had so many hot spring pools in a totally different way that I imagined. It was great! The changing rooms, showers, and bathrooms could definitely be updated. Way to small for the the amount of people there.

We scored some passes from a local and it was worth every penny. A friend of mine told me we had to do hot springs when in Costa Rica and I'm telling you the same. We went after ATV rides and spent about 4 hours jumping from pool to pool and bar to bar. We finished with their all you... More
