“Wow, awesome Hot Springs!”
Reviewed September 7, 2013

This was a great place to visit when we were in Arenal. The Hot Springs were great and they had they intertwined amongst trees and rocks and it was pretty easy to find a quiet place if you were willing to walk for a few minutes.

“Waters by the Volcano”

A great place to enjoy the volcanic hot springs. Did not stay at the hotel, which was a bit pricey, but looked like a very nice place to stay.

Dear Vartan D

We are glad you have visited Tabacon! Our hotel guest have access to the hot springs included in their room rate but we also offer Day Pass options where our guest can add one or two meals and some of the packages include spa treatments as well. We are glad you enjoyed your time at the resort, our property is unique since the hot springs emerge naturally from the Arenal Volcano and goes through forming cascades and natural pools and ponds with a high mineral content. We really look forward to receive you as our guest in the near future.

With kindest regards

“Relaxing in the junble”
Reviewed September 4, 2013

These hot springs are fantastic and the natural water flow into the semi manmade pools tucked into the jungle are beyond relaxing. Definitely worth exploring the many pools and grounds.

“ultimate relaxation experience”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

Hot springs made up of pools with waterfalls ~ what is there not to like? The place was a bit pricey but well worth it. Very relaxing, not too over crowded, clean, pretty, and great service. When feeling over-heated from sitting under the waterfalls, you can dip into a pool and grab a drink as the bar is located in the pool. One downside was the fact that the drinks were too sweet. However, the food at the buffet was EXTREMELY tasty!
