Don’t come here expecting hot springs. It’s not. It’s a regular public swimming pool which happens to be heated by a volcano. The water is lukewarm. Great for a swim, not for a soak. It was busy with a school group when we visited but...More

Entrance fee is cheap, 3000 colones per person, but you get excactly what you pay for. When they say thermal water you really expect it to have nice warm water, but then you are mistaking. They advertise with 35°C, but that is not true. Not...More

Nice public pools, inexpensive. Most guide books are misleading and should do better research instead of copying from each other, calling it 'Thermal Pools' or 'Hot Springs', in fact they are simple, but clean public pools with luke warm water in the 2 smaller ones,...More

I guess it depends what you are looking for. This is basically a public swimming pool with a cheap entrance fee. I went expecting natural hot springs or something of that sort and was surprised to find that the pools were not natural the the...More
