 Costa Rica Spotlight: Tabacon Hot Springs and Spa  Costa Rica’s Best Hot Springs Experience
Travel Costa Rica to Tabacon Hot Springs and Spa, a tropical oasis embedded in a primary rain forest at the foot of the mighty Arenal Volcano, is without a doubt one of the top ten tours around Arenal Volcano. An unforgetable experience. Don’t miss it! Cascading hot spring gurgling from the volcano’s base, create 12 natural thermal pools and lagoons, waterfalls, and exotic gardens with songs of tropical birds. You can relax for several hours, taking in these tropical gardens with hundreds of flowering plants while you let the natural hot waters roll over your body. Watch from here as the Arenal constantly rumbles and spits burning rocks, creating a crimson hot lava flow in the distance. What an experience! Make a day of it and treat yourself to the Tabacon grand spa. I have been there many times and I can tell you the massages and other treatments are more than great- so pamper yourself ! To further compliment your day, dine right here at the hot springs. Lunch or dinner- just a few steps away. You can choose from a fresh selection of Costa Rican and international dishes. Yes! A perfect day in the Costa Rican Rain forest!

Then there is the beautiful Tabacon Lodge just walking distance from the hot thermal waters. Again nestled in a tropical garden with howler monkeys at you balcony’s edge, you can hear the mighty Arenal Volcano roar like a lion while spitting fire from its summit. Grounds include a swimming pool fed by thermal hot springs, another 4 star restaurant, and a fabulous gift shop. Reservations for the hotel in advance- are a must in the high season which is Mid November thru Mid April and again for the month of July till mid August. However, the hot springs entrance does not require reservations, but reservations for the spa and ,massage treatments are a must. The Lodge offers hooneymoon packages. Also you can buy the hot springs, the lodging, and massage treatments all in one package- which makes it a better buy. You can find more in depth information thru google..just type in Tabacon Hot Springs and Spa. Or Tabacon Lodge Costa Rica. Have a great time! “Pura Vida”
Spa: different treatments offered. I took the deep muscle massage for 45 minutes for a cost of $75.00. Great massage and afterwards I got under the hot springs waterfall. Great!Cost of Tabacon Lodge. Please look on web site for current prices. My husband and I paid including taxes, full buffet gourmet breakfast, and entrance to the Tabacon Hot springs for $250 for 1 night. This was a standard room but very comfortable , with a view of the Arenal Volcano.
