Hot Springs in the Jungle

We are a boutique tour company that is locally owned and operated. We pride ourselves on keeping our groups small to medium in size so that we can make our tours more personal and unique.Once you are picked up at your hotel or vacation rental, you will be driven through palm plantations and a jungle back country before arriving at the thermal springs. It is a informative 45 minute ride where a bilingual guide will explain the history of the local area while looking for wildlife along the way. Once you arrive, there are bathrooms where one can change. There is a 5 minute walk to get o the thermal pools and the river. There are 5 pristine thermal pools where one can relax while experiencing a natural clay mask. One can also swim in the crystal clear waters of the river where the pools are 2 ft to 6 ft deep. There are three naturally carved out rock slides where everyone in the family can have a blast going down them.

A typical Costa Rican lunch is served at the end of the tour.

If you're looking for exciting and interesting activities around Manuel Antonio stop searching, you've just found them! Damian and his team are great. We booked a rafting tour with them, a trip to waterfalls in the jungle, and a stay in the mountains, and all experiences were awesome. Damian knows a lot about the country and about nature, and was happy to share all that knowledge with us. He speaks both fluently English and Spanish, he's a real nice and caring guy, and we had lots of fun. Thanks Damian!

Impossible to find a better tour company and guides....Damian and Mel are THE best. Have used them repeatedly for white water rafting and added in a waterfall tour this year. Perfect for families with younger kids. Very personal experience. Kids ages 7-13 in our group. Always feel safe in their hands.

This was our 2nd trip with Costa Rica Tropical Tours. Damien, Mel and team are extraordinary. Our 2nd year doing the white water rafting and this year we added on a waterfall hike. Super exciting but still doable for adventurous kids (we had 4 kids aged 8-13). The scenery on the rafting was absolutely stunning, with chances to jump in the river and get refreshed while kids (and adults) jumped off rocks. The adventure really was personalized, sharing all their knowledge of the area and including special touches. Trip to the private waterfall was amazing - lunch at a local outdoor restaurant, a 15 min hike in through the jungle, swimming under the waterfall, jumping off cliffs, snorkelling with fish. This outfit is top notch. Even if you’re not sure about level of activity, given Damien a call. So many great ideas and spots/things to do and will personalize a trip for your group.
