The Springs Resort experience for our family was nothing short of magnificent. The staff was extremely polite, friendly, knowledgeable, approachable, and pleasant. They truly became part of our family.
Our children range in age from mid-teens to early twenties. We all thoroughly enjoyed our experiences at Club Rio from tubing to horseback riding. The wildlife tour of rescued animals should not be missed. Best to go in the cooler parts of the day when the animals are more active.
In particular, as a complete novice at horseback riding, I found this adventure most rewarding. The guides at Club Rio (Oscar and Nano) have a relaxed teaching approach that worked well with my lack of horse sense and initial nervousness. During two one-hour tours through fields and trails (even a cool down in the Arenal River), they observed and adjusted my riding technique that quickly built my confidence. On our final day, our family embarked with Oscar and Nano on a 2-½ hour journey from Club Rio into the surrounding countryside. Additional pointers along the way further enhanced the enjoyment of this journey of great sites and memories. Pura Vida!
Consult the Concierge regarding time availability of activities at Club Rio. There are plenty of changing rooms and bathrooms onsite. Bring your swimwear as after riding or climbing, there is nothing like a relaxing dip in the hot spring.
