Our driver bought is here and we have stayed 3 nights. We have a bungalow which has a kitchen, two bedrooms, 2 baths and a fully stocked kitchen. Very comfortable. The grounds here are absolutely stunning and peaceful. Breakfast is included in our price which is a full buffet. Then after breakfast, Daniel, takes us to where the hot springs... More

We live in Costa Rica and, although this place is just 90 minutes from our home, it has taken us two years to make the trip. We should have done it sooner!!! Everything about Termales del Bosque appealed to us. The property is simply gorgeous and the location of the hot springs in the jungle is phenomenal. Going during rainy... More

This was an average place with everything you need. The rooms were very nice, one small problem the bedding needs to be updated, the pillows were lumpy and you could see the linen was very thin. The restaurant had excellent meals and the breakfast buffet was nice. The staff was very helpful in the restaurant and the hotel staff was... More

This is one of my favorite hotels in the area. It is modest - so those looking for fancy need to go elsewhere - but the rooms are clean and comfortable and the best thing about the hotel are the amazing hot springs!!! A 7 minute walk through the humid forrest brings you to a river and rustic and comfortable... More

These hot springs are beautiful. You walk about a quarter to half a mile into the forest preserve until you get to the stream. Along the stream are natural looking stone enclosed pools filled with different proportions of the hot spring water, so you can go from cold to hot, or hot to cold, as you choose. While you're floating... More

We were in Aguas Zarcas and looking for a one night accommodation. We checked three places, and while this property was the more expensive of the three, it was the best overall value. Rate (was same for single or double!) included a large but a bit outdated room that will sleep 3, two breakfasts and two admissions to the hot... More

Before I begin I'd like to point out that Termales del Bosque is located between the towns of Ciudad Quesada and Aguas Zarcas, and is not in the immediate vicinity of Arenal Volcano. I recently stayed here for a second time, just over a year after my first visit. I think some of the poor reviews that have been written... More

If you're trying to figure out how to stick in some hot springs without going to Arenal, and doing it on a budget, without sacrificing your desire to be submersed in nature but at the same time being right on a main road with easy access, meanwhile helping a local small/medium business, then this is the place for you.

We got there at night after a long drive and being able to chill in the thermals right away was worth the whole trip. If you're looking for luxury and over-manicured landscapes this might not be your cup of tea, but for nature lovers it's a dream. Had some reasonably priced yummy juices which u can charge to the room.... More
