This place was AWESOME! I loved it and would recommend staying here for a night or two. The hot springs were fantastic with many different temperatures to suit everyone. The waterfalls of hot water were amazing. We went for the afternoon after hiking down to the La Fortuna Waterfall which was a perfect combination. After taking a walking tour and then relaxing in the hot springs for several hours, we showered, changed and had dinner there which was very good. Tickets for the day including dinner were $38 through our hotel desk (Arenal Volcano Observatory Lodge) and it was worth every penny!

Buy tickets from a hostel or travel agent in town, they're much much cheaper!

This hot spring complex offers pools ranging from super hot (114 degrees fahrenheit) to much cooler. They also have cold pools in the middle of the hot pools so you can cool off. There are three bars strategically placed throughout the pools (drinks are $10), make sure you keep walking up the hill after the water slide pool because theres another huge hidden pool up there with the hottest water of all and a really snazzy little bar. If you have a chance to walk around the garden, its very beatiful. Watch out for the fast water slide, you go up to 40 km/hr and its not that fun. We fit all our purses, wallets and valuables (8 girls) in one of the tiny lockers and left our clothes and towels out by one of the springs for 3-4 hours and they were fine.

Stayed in Jaco and did a day trip here, not worth the long 4 hour drive. If you are in the area it is worth a visit, but eat else where as the food is not that good. Convenient lockers for $6 and definitely get the towels by leaving a deposit as you get soaked going from spring to spring.
