Overview

Anyone of our 5 blue thermal pools should delight even the most avid thermal spring's enthusiasts. Each pool has its own natural eye of water, bubbling up from deep inside the earth producing water no hotter than (99f - 37.2c) and no cooler than (94f ? 34.4c). You can also enjoy one of several hiking trails or relax in a hammock, lunch and massage are also available with advance notice.

The Hot Springs provided a wonderful beginning to my stay in Guanacaste. I thought the waters would be far too hot, given the 90-degree air temperature, but I was dead wrong. They were warm, to be sure, but soothing and relaxing more than anything else....More

Hi there. The roads are very good all the way to the site. There is a dirt road from the main road into the springs. It is $40 USD for a day pass and lunch which will be delivered to you.
