We follow the downhill path of a rushing stream with lots of small cascades.Because of the constant vapors issuing from the hot springs waters the surrounding trees are draped with mosses,ferns,...

This is a great place to simply getaway from it all.

Food was also very good... More

The hot springs here are one in a kind, you'll need to walk somewhat, but the moment you get there, you'll have pure tropical forest as your landscape whilst relaxing on the hot waters. there are several pools with different temperatures and the staff will come around time to time asking if you need anything from the bar.

We stayed for one night in June 2014. We arrived late and checked into our room. The only concern with the room was the numerous ants. I assume they came in because of the rain. The next morning we visit the hot springs before checking out. We arrived very early and were the only ones at the hot springs for... More

We purchased a day pass that included a horseback ride, buffet lunch, and admission to the hot spring pools for about $31 per person.

I came for am afternoon and just got the hot springs. I've been to a few other hot springs in my life, even a fancy one at Arenal, not too far away but nothing compared. After a five minute walk on a beautiful rock path through the rainforest, you arrive at the pools, spa and bar/restaurant. The jungle is super... More

This was my second trip here, my other friend has been many times and another friend their first.
