Thermals and Mud Baths
At such places as Rincón de la Vieja and Arenal, you can cover your body with volcanic mud before immerse yourself in a natural Spring, for an exfoliating and revitalizing spa treatment taken directly from Mother Earth. The benefits of thermal and mud baths are well known, in Costa Rica we are so lucky of the When rainwater enters underground fissures created by past volcanic activity, it can be heated by magma rising out of the earth’s core. This water becomes infused with therapeutic minerals, and in certain locations, returns to the surface to be enjoyed as soothing volcanic hot springs, gives as a result a wide collection of places to enjoy wellness and relaxation. Although it is often thought that the temperature of the water in the hot springs must be boiling or at least at the point of boiling, we can find mud water wells and hot springs with very pleasant temperatures. One of the most popular locations to enjoy thermal pools is La Fortuna de San Carlos with the background Arenal Volcano. In this place we highlight the facilities of Tabacón and the Ecotermales.
The Tabacón Resort has swimming pools and a river of thermal waters coming from the veins of the majestic Arenal Volcano that predominate in the place. Rivers, wells and small waterfalls around a tropical forest. The Tabacón Hot Springs are globally known, and without a doubt submerging into them will make you feel relaxed and rejuvenated, due to the minerals present in the volcanic waters.
At Tabacón Grand Spa Thermal Resort we find the perfect combination of luxury, nature and relaxation.
Also in La Fortuna, immersed into the forest sounds, we find the waters of Ecotermales. A true health and relaxation source due to the location of its complex of pools. This, was built to perfectly adapt to natural course of the springs that descend directly from the Arenal volcano, which ensures that every 45 minutes the water from these pools is completely new and clean, without any physical-chemical processing that can affect the purity of the waters. Another place that offers us the advantages of enjoying thermal waters and mud baths is Rincón de la Vieja with natural pools of a wide variety of temperatures, sizes and shapes. We will also enjoy the properties of volcanic mud in establishments such as El Cañón de la Vieja, one step away from Rincón de la Vieja National Park, next to the river with thermal wells and mud baths that travelers can enjoy after a day of rappelling, canopy or river adventure; Hacienda Guachipelín is a tourist destination with hot springs, mud pools, fumarolic lakes, and if you are looking for something more intimate, do not hesitate to hire a tour of Volcanic Mud and Hot Springs in Symbiosis, located next to the river here you can enjoy a totally pleasant experience.
