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.

After an intense day of hiking and zip lining, this was the perfect thing to do to relax and wind down the day. My wife and I went at 6PM and reserved dinner for 7:30PM. It was a middle-aged or young adult crowd. There are 4 or so temperature ranges you can choose to go into. There is also a... More

We relaxed in the hot spring for about one and half hours. Not crowed at all. The dinner was really good. Worth the money.

We only did the springs and lunch and enjoyed it very much! We also used the shower and locker facilities since it was only a lunch stop on our way to La Carolina Lodge near Rio Celeste. Highly recomend these springs.....beautiful and not overly touristy

From what I understand this was a smaller pool but it was not crowded, there were several pools with varying temperatures, the staff was very friendly and the food at the restaurant was fantastic.

The water slide was way faster than it looked, super rustic, fun!! We loved the zip lining, not the extreme ones but really well managed and cool. The horseback ride down the canyon was great, and the mud bath and hot springs were great. Definitely worth the visit, we drove there and bought passes. Easy.

We visited for an evening slot (5pm) having booked via a tour operator for entrance and dinner. We were quickly check in and given towels and a locker. Changing areas were clean and large. We had been told there were 5 pools so expected 5 areas - in reality it is 1 large pool separated in to smaller areas and... More

A beautiful facility that we found very relaxing and pleasant. We chose Ecotermales because it was advertised as the only hot spring property in La Fortuna where the water naturally springs up right on site. I liked that there were several different pools with different temperatures and a cold dipping pool as well (I think 5 in all). Other travelers... More

The Ecotermales La Fortuna was a very nice, relaxing experience. I enjoyed the fact that it was the natural, more beautiful version of your thermal bath spas but that you're allowed to speak and take in your surroundings. The bar and restaurant were very easily accessible. Drinks were good and we opted in for the dinner buffet which was also... More

Absolutely loved our day here. The thermal baths are wonderful and so relaxing. On the day we visited it was quiet so at times we were the only ones in the pools. The staff were welcoming and helpful, the drinks and food delicious and the facilities were excellent. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend Ecotermales to others and would love to return... More

Great hot springs location - smaller than the other options available. Good drink selection for reasonable price. Beautiful at night.
