The family owned and operated natural hot springs, which allow only a limited number of guests each day, provide a private, relaxing oasis during your vacation.There are five pools, one with a cascading waterfall, which reach up to 108 degrees Fahrenheit. There is no better way to unwind after a long day than by visiting the hot springs and treating your body to its naturally replenishing effects. When taking a break from the soothing hot springs, you can dine in the authentic, home-style Costa Rican restaurant.

We did the evening session of these (there are 2 sessions per day) and it’s a great experience being outside and sitting in the thermal hot springs. There are a number of pools to choose from, all at slightly different temperatures. The water has a nice feel to it also. They have a bar there serving drinks which added to... More

This place was an absolute home run. The hot springs were great. Nice place, beautiful facility, impeccable condition, spotless. Super attentive staff. We paid for the dinner, which was $20.00 over the spa price and the food was absolutely fabulous. The beef tenderloin was tender, rosemary potatoes, fresh vegetables, desserts and coffee. If you want an awesome experience and are... More

Spent several hours there going from lower degrees of thermal pools, ending up in a warm pool. So relaxing. Not too many other guests present. Drinks available at the poolside by waiters. We had dinner at the establishment. Service was courteous and abundant. My skin never felt better the next day. Slept like a baby.

We went to this spa in the evening with our three daughters, aged 12, 10 and 6. We loved the luxurious and natural vibe, and the cocktails were delicious!

After 2 days of hiking, rafting, and rappelling, my husband and I wanted to treat ourselves. We went online and booked the morning time block for the next day to visit and relax. (Yes book it ahead of time, they limit the number of entries). It was raining when we showed up just after 10 and when we got into... More

Such a nice treat! Really beautiful, clean , nice food and bar and friendly staff. Saw howler monkeys flying through the trees and all kinds of lovely birds. There are several hot and cold pools and built in stone lounges and fountains.

We went to these baths after doing 3 tours that day, they were delightful. Only 100 people are allowed in and it does not seem crowded. They provide lockers, towels and wrist band, so you can charge any food and drinks without worrying about having money on you. We were there in the evening and it was very romantic. The... More
