Tabacon Grand Spa Thermal Resort (Alajuela)
Whether your group wants to spend the night or just visit for a day, Tabacon Grand Spa Thermal Resort will be your number one Arenal hot springs destination. Tabacon is known as 'Arenal's largest and most beautiful private rainforest reserve', the resort sitting right in between Arenal Volcano and Arenal Volcano National Park. Even the ride into the resort will be an exciting experience, taking your group further and further into the lush jungle and immersing you into the sights, smells, and sounds of the rainforest along the way.
Here at Tabacon Resort, you will find 5 main springs, each with highly mineralized water heated underground by magma. Thousands of gallons of this water flow each minute here, feeding the Tabacon River and dozens of waterfalls along the way. Your group can choose to hang out at the resort itself, in any of the many warm pools along the riverbed (varying in privacy, temperature, and crowd density), or in a thermal waterfall, one of the most relaxing natural hydrotherapy options.
The resort itself has a main sunbathing and swimming area that holds 5 different pools, a swim-up bar, and a thermal waterslide. Most of the river pools stay between 72 and 105 degrees Fahrenheit, though if you are looking for a more refreshing dip then you can head to the one cold water pool here. One of the things we love the most about this stop is that the water is medicinally mineral filled, though the sulfur count isn't high so the water smells and looks pleasant still.
Are you ready to explore 'a luxury hotel amidst the breathtaking beauty of the rainforest?'
