Lose Yourself At The Springs Spa Costa Rica

(Last Updated On: April 22, 2019)

No visit to the Arenal Volcano region of Costa Rica is complete without a visit to the naturally heated volcanic hot springs. We chose The Springs Spa for our thermal pool experience. There are quite a few hotels and spas in La Fortuna you can choose from at all price ranges.

There are day spas where you can mingle with the locals and soak away for about $8.00 a day, or others that offer luxury full service spa experiences such as a jungle chocolate message. All of them have water heated geothermally from the earth’s crust and pumped into pools with temperatures ranging from in the 80’s to over 150 degrees F in some spas.

We decided on a place where we could find a large number of pools to sample at a price range that worked for us. It was also important that we had access to a restaurants since we planned to spend the day, and we hoped that it wouldn’t be too crowded.

The property is huge and during the day we were able to find hidden spots where we were relatively alone.

We soaked and relaxed all day, and even ducked under a palm leaf during an intermittent rain storm that passed by.

The Springs Resort and Spa was holding a special and we were able to get a 2 day pass for $60 each. Not bad.

While we can’t compare with other Hot Springs in Arenal we can certainly say that if you decide to spend a day here you will not be disappointed! 

Pura Vida!
