Finnish Country Sauna & Tubs + Cafe Mokka are a long-term mainstay of the Arcata community. The outdoor hot tubs are a pleasure and so are the sauna cabins. The small cafe always has good music and the least expensive cappucinos and mokka's in town,...More

Do yourself a favor and soak in these large, outdoor, private wooden hot tubs with powerful jets. Less than $10 for 1/2-hour soak plus 1/2-hour cool down. Perfect water temperature, garden setting. Cozy, old-fashioned, European-style cafe attached, delightfully un-hip and un-trendy. Very pleasant staff, well...More
