Overview
More
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 went for an evening soak. Water ranged from quite hot to hot but there was also a cold pool. Kind of hard to see at night, and there are some big rocks to navigate around. Next time, we will try the daytime.

We planned an impromptu visit to the ecotermales based on local recommendations. Turns out you need reservations to get in so we were turned away. If you find yourself in a similar situation, there are many other hot springs locations in the Arenal/Fortuna area that...More

We really enjoyed the time spent in these clean pools. There is no sulfur smell and the water is crystal clear. The pools are never over crowded because they limit the number of bathers during the 5 hour time slot.

Price was pretty steep, but it was a relaxing way to end the day. Loved that the springs were surrounded by nature, it was clean and not very busy.

Our family of four enjoyed our time at this location. Beautiful ambiance, great facilities, and the drinks were delicious (albeit expensive). Most of all, it was not at all crowded, which is a huge plus for me. By 7pm we felt like the only people...More
