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 loved our visit to the thermal spa. The entrance into the property was beautiful and the spa grounds are very nice. They offered great spa side service and the buffet dinner was good too.

This place is amazing! So relaxing and peaceful. The food is also great with an amazing buffet. We went during the week in mid-afternoon. It wasn’t crowded at all. The pools are so calming and relaxing. Great experience!

Spent an evening here with the family. We soaked up the hot springs in an extraordinary environment. You are smack dab in the rainforest. Our favorite were the stone beds for laying down in the hot springs.
