Eco Termales Hot Springs, Arenal Volcano National Park

4.3
#12 of 13 in Nature in Arenal Volcano National Park
A therapeutic sanctuary heated by Arenal Volcano, Eco Termales Hot Springs offers secluded relaxation in a lush tropical setting. Family-operated and smaller than other hot springs in the area, the premises focus on a more intimate experience, with only 100 visitors allowed to enter at a time. Take a dip in four shimmering pools of varying temperature, with a cool pool and man made waterfall providing welcome refreshment. Finish off your visit with a delicious meal of authentic Criollo cuisine, made onsite in a rustic restaurant overlooking the springs.
