    Before you enter the area you are asked to washing your hands. Then you are given a wrist band. The hike to the bottom is about 500 steps. The steps are metal and evenly spaced making it easy to walk down. There are several places to stop and take a break if necessary. Below the waterfall is an area you can take off you shoes and wade in the water, Remember to take a towel to dry off your feet. If you are so inclined you can wear a bathing suite and get in but you will wear your bathing suite back up to the top as there are no changing rooms at the bottom, or bathrooms for that matter. The waterfall is definitely worth the walk down and back. Very beautiful.

    We went in the evening, in the rain and it was magical. They are very safely conscience. We had to wash our hands before going up the the counter. Towels and a locker were supplied. You were asked to choose a time for dinner so it was not overcrowded and the food was very good. Great place to relax in several different temperature pools. They even had a pool to cool you off. Showers and a hair dryer were supplied also. Great way to spend an evening.

    Good experience. I got the deal with lunch, which was good. The pools are pretty clean, no lifeguards. Drinks at bar were overpriced. The rental for locker is USD7 and they are not big. There are parking at the place.

    We did the wildlife and the sloth tours. Others visitors were participating in the volunteeering program. In the wildlife session we saw and learn about all the animals which area brought to the Center either because they were household pets (illegal in Costa Rica) or were injured. Our guide was a wealth of knowledge. After that we went cloth watching with Adriana and a powerful scope. Even though there were no sloths in the rescue centre, we area able to see many on the property. This is a non-profit that deserves a visit. Fantastic!

    Bogarin Trail was outstanding. The guides were excellent and there is so much to see. They really look after you.
    So many sloths.
    Right in La Fortuna so dead easy.

    A great view of the volcano. Lots of activities. Perfect spot in CR. Our food at La Mansion was the best. It was hard to find a good local restaurant so ask a local tour guide. We could not find any ATM to dispense dollars. They had two banks but neither could allow us access to cash.

    This is a wonderful place to visit. Entrance is free, but just be cautious. You will find guys asking to be paid to keep your car safe. Do it. Definitely recommend.

    Choose to visit Paradise Hot Springs due to its smaller size, rather than one of the bigger resorts, whilst staying in La Fortuna.

    A short taxi (uber) ride from the town centre. Able to hire locker and towel when we arrived and stayed for six hours (1pm - 7pm).

    Two main thermal pools (one with a bar) along with half a dozen small (3 or 4 people) jacuzzi type pools, all of varying temperatures. Plenty of loungers and quiet areas to relax.

    For tge majority of our stay it felt like we had the hot springs to ourselves (and about a dozen other guests). Around 4:30pm it did start to fill up with hotel guests(?) and/or a tour group (?) but they stayed for no more than 45mins before we had the place to ourselves again as dusk fell.

    An in all a relaxing day in sight of the Arenal volcano.

    My partner and I were super unsure of which hot springs to go to. There are SO many that all seem to do the same 'thing' but have miniscule differences which feel like whichever you choose will be the difference between a good or a bad day. We spent what felt like days researching which hot springs to go to. We wanted affordable, romantic (it was our anniversary), a natural-like feel, aesthetic and we wanted to be able to spend the whole day there to be able to sunbathe and have the peaceful atmosphere of night. We ended up going with Los Lagos- the others were silly expensive (Tabacon & The Springs), sounded too kid-focused (Baldi) or were only for day OR night (eco-termales).

    First of all, the pictures don't do it justice. The image of the pool with the bridge is actually more just a swimming pool with a water slide, not really part of the hot-spring experience and rather, just a bonus as the slide is quite fun. The hot springs themselves were beautiful, of varying temperatures (some a bit too hot for me!), with smaller, more private pools and 2 larger ones. We arrived at 2:30 and it was really quiet which we hadn't expected. There was loads of room and lots of explore. The swim up bar was a nice novelty and they have a food menu too. In total there was over 10 pools, which was more than enough. I do have to add that the service at the bar was terrible- they only had one member of staff on which seemed entirely unfair on them and so you had to wait 20 minutes for a drink. We got the Blue Hawaiian and the Volcan Arenal cocktails and they pretty horrible - too strong and artificial tasting.

    We got dinner included for $35 p.p including the springs which we thought was a really great price. It came with a drink, starter, main and dessert from a set menu. The food was pretty below average, it felt cheap and tasteless, so in hindsight, I'd recommend just going to the hot springs and ordering food from the bar (wood fired pizzas etc). However, the service was really good and a nice restaurant.

    You also get to visit the ant, butterfly and turtle gardens included in the hot spring price which we were really impressed with. I wasn't expecting much but the ant and butterfly houses were particularly interesting and really educational. The Los Lagos grounds are really beautiful.

    Overall, if you are unsure on which hot springs and don't want to spend loads, Los Lagos is the one. We were really pleasantly surprised and wish we had had someone to just tell us to go there straight away to save us all the time researching!

    Did the night walk. Beautiful area. Saw so many different types of frogs especially the one my wife had been wanting to see, the blue jean frog. Two different types of vipers including the fer-de-lance.

    We did the night tour with Brandon as many of the animals are nocturnal. It was amazing and Brandon helped my 17 year get some unbelievable photos that his fiends tagged as National Geographic. I think what made the tour even better was Brandon's passion as a guide. He LOVES his "office"! It was pitch black and he would say look over here and there was a viper hanging on a big leaf and the same color as the leaf. Great tour.

    Site includes 8 hot water basins with temperature between 35 and 45 Celsius degrees. Spend there 3 relaxing hours even during rain. Bar offers various drinks for average price. Best option to finish the holidays.

    I'm from Colorado and all and all, this was one of the best river tours I've ever had! From transport with Jimmy and Beto to the river with our guide John Carlos, everyone was professional and at the same time, down to earth/ fun loving. Thanks to that crew that made it all a very special day!

    Highly recommend this trip!
    And ask for Jimmy and John Carlos

    This was a fabulous day while staying in Fortuna. The van picked us up from our hotel and brought us to the farm in town. We learned so much along the way, starting with getting to sample the fruit that encases the cacao, learning and watching the roasting process, and of course sampling the freshest brewed coffee you'll ever have. You'll also get to sample many types of chocolate from milk to 100% dark with the option to flavor it with vanilla, chili, or molasses. We also had the opportunity to press sugar cane and sample the water. This is an informative, engaging, and fun tour and our teens loved it!

    NOTE: My son has a peanut allergy and because this was all made from scratch it was safe for him to participate as well. There were peanuts in a container to add to your chocolate if desired but of course we didn't open it. He safely and happily enjoyed both the coffee and chocolate tastings.

    This was an excellent experience. Our group included a 68yo, 70yo, 48yo, 46yo, 16yo, 13yo. After a week full of deep see fishing, sunset catamaran cruises, nature tours, surfing, horseback riding, and waterfall excursions; all six of us rated this experience in our top three. It was my number one. Duration was a couple hours of actual rafting, a bit "rougher" on the front end. The whole experience felt like you were in a movie. The river is absolutely gorgeous. Our guide was excellent and made us feel confident in ourselves as well as him. He pointed out wildlife along the way; he went to extreme lengths to point out a couple sloths that took me FOREVER to see, while the rest of our party saw them immediately. The pineapple and watermelon snack was delicious. We opted to buy the pictures and they arrived the next day as promised. I'm glad to have the pictures but the memory and experience I will cherish so much more. Highly recommended.
