“This is a great place, but a bit spendy.......”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2013

Nothing compares. It is true, it is unique. But it is also very expensive! There are other hot springs like Valdi or Paradise. They are just as good and more affordable.

“Relaxing”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2013

We went to Tabacon at 1pm in the afternoon and it was very peaceful not crowded, very relaxing. But after 5 pm or so when they offer reduced price tickets it was over crowded and had the feel and kids of a theme park.The entrance price is a bit pricey but it is worth it at lease once.

A truly wonderful place. Unfortunately a few zones seemed to be closed when we were there, but that didn't matter. Well worth the entrance fee.

“A Great Place to Unwind”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 16, 2013

There are several hot springs in the La Fortuna area but this is your only choice. It's expensive then the others but it's well worth the money due to it's natural setting, several natural waterfalls to soothe your body and great facilities for changing,showering and eating. One should know that a price of a ticket allows you to enter twice over two days and we took full advantage ..the 1st day it was kind of rainy and the next day it was sunny thus we were able to experience it both ways and it was simply amazing.

Treat yourself here and no place else.
