What to Expect
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Hunters & Gatherers Costa Rica, 702, Alajuela Province, San Carlos La Fortuna Alajuela CR 21007, Provincia de Alajuela, La Fortuna, Costa Rica

This is a great way to experience local hot spots and take some time to hang out with locals. You will first head to the El Salto Secret Swimming Hole through the private entrance of Desafio Adventure Company's Hunters & Gatherers restaurant. Chill out, order a beer and take in the sites and sounds of this hidden gem. Have an all-you-can-eat lunch and enjoy our riverside facilities before heading to the natural hot springs.

Duration: 2 hours

Stop At: Free Natural Hot Springs River, In front of Tabacon Hot Springs, Provincia de Alajuela, La Fortuna, 21007, Costa Rica

And to get really local, after you have a nice meal at the Hunters & Gatherers restaurant next to the El Salto swimming Hole, we'll take you to another favorite local hang out to relax in natural hot springs. Be sure to keep an eye on your belongings. You will be able to soak for an hour and return in the Desafio van. Should you wish to stay longer, you will have to arrange for your own transportation.

Duration: 1 hour
