Massage/Spa at Hotel vs. Alternative

I have splurged and am staying at a couple of great hotels both Nayara and Hotel Royal Corine. That said, I would like to avoid the incredibly high price of the hotel spa experience. Can anyone suggest a reputable, clean, great spa in the Arenal/La Fortuna area where I can get a bargain on spa services or at least a massage??

I would consider the hotel spa experience but they really are so expensive.

If one of those hotels has a spa that I just can't skip, let me know and I will consider it.

Nayara is absolutely amazing...spend the money there for at least one "great spa experience". If you you just want a basic massage after a long day of hiking, go to La Fortuna and you can find massages for $25...no comparison to the "feel" of the spa but the lady who does massages here also goes to the big hotels so she's great...here's where to go: Angels' by La Cascada-across from Banco Nacional. Note that you will probably have to stop by and arrange for an appointment vs. just showing up. Enjoy your time in our lovely little town!!!
