There are five different springs at Tabacón. Temperatures within the springs range from 77 °F (25 °C) to 122 °F (50 °C). A thermal river (heated by the volcano) flows in two main channels throughout the resort. Pulled by gravity, the river pools in some places and trips over waterfalls in others. There is a cold river that winds through the property as well, offering up cooler pools that contrast nicely with the hot springs.
Within the main area is a swim-up bar and waterslide. Guests can enjoy an ice-cold cocktail while soaking in the steaming water and then get their blood flowing by plunging down the slide. The pools in the lower section have a secluded ambiance and serve up fantastic views of the Arenal Volcano. All the pools are surrounded by gardens.
In addition to the hot springs, Tabacón has a spa that offers a variety of treatments, including full-body massages, exfoliations, and volcanic mud wraps. There are also Ayurvedic treatments such as Shirodhara (which involves gently pouring liquids over the forehead) and Watsu underwater massages.
Tabacón is an eco-friendly and carbon-neutral resort.

This place was awe-inspiring. We plan to come back to stay at the Tabacon Springs Resort in the future so we can access these hot springs all the time. We were glad to visit in the evening to avoid the high heat of the day and really appreciated that it was low season enabling us to have most of the pools to ourselves throughout the evening.
Really good way to end the day, love this spot, very relaxing. The buffet was good as well, something for everyone.
Favorite hot springs! Best buffet dinner I have ever had!
Get your morning started off right with this 4-hour visit to the Tabacón Hot Springs. These springs offer the very best of the tropical landscape — its fertile grounds bloom with profusions of tropical plants. The warm pools are naturally heated, drawing their warmth from the underground magma from the active Arenal Volcano.
