Overview

The family owned and operated natural hot springs, which allow only a limited number of guests each day, provide a private, relaxing oasis during your vacation.There are five pools, one with a cascading waterfall, which reach up to 108 degrees Fahrenheit. There is no better way to unwind after a long day than by visiting the hot springs and treating your body to its naturally replenishing effects. When taking a break from the soothing hot springs, you can dine in the authentic, home-style Costa Rican restaurant.

We did not stay at this resort but only visited for a few hours. We had never visited hot springs before so we weren’t sure what to expect. After a long day of hiking, this was a nice way to end the day. This is...More
