I don't know how the other hot springs stay busy. This facility is amazing. Multiple spring pools and swimming pools. Super clean facilities. And the lowest price in town. $12 You will be so happy you picked this hot springs!!

I think this is the cheapest hot springs in the area (12 USD per person). 9 pools with different temperature. Note that you have to bring your own towels, food&drinks, if needed - there is no bar there. Amazing place to spend an afternoon or an evening (it is open until 9 pm) with a possibility to have your dinner... More

Stopped by for an afternoon with a friend. Cheap and easy entrance, good parking. Varied pools with varied temperatures. Very family-friendly place. The ranchitos were plentiful and equipped with lights, outlets, a 'caja fuerte,' etc. Very nice place overall and great value for the money. I belive it was around 6000colones/pax.

Our taxi driver recommended this hot springs and we took him up on it with no regrets. Lots of different pools to swim in ranging from truly hot to Canadian lake cold. Clearly a popular spot with the locals and for good reason; a good place to observe culture in action including hot pots a-go at picnic tables, Latin music... More

Rather than go to a touristy hot springs location, Enrique from the La Fortuna hotel recommended we go here, which was frequented by locals. The cost was about $12 per person – significantly below the entrance fees for the larger resort operations. The location was a short taxi ride from our hotel and maybe because we went mid-week, the place... More

This was probably my favorite activity in La Fortuna. Best price out of all the local hot springs and the most pools with much variety.

very cheap option for families, would not recommend if you're traveling solo, it's very clean, bring your own food if you want to save some more money, there's a restaurant located inside.

Great for families, few tourists.........an economical option! It cost $36.00 for our family of four, two children. Bring a picnic lunch with you to save more $$$$, even though there is a restaurant located on the grounds-a fun time was had by all!

This was a very cheap place to visit, as we paid 9000 colones for three adults and a child. They had lockers available for use and picnic areas to enjoy. There were a few different water slides of varying complexity that all ages could enjoy.
