Arenal Hot Springs

There are a wealth of hot springs in the area surrounding the Arenal Volcano.

These springs originate in a geothermally heated underground river. Local hotels tap into this source and bring the water to the surface, creating mineral-rich hot springs for their guests to enjoy. Staying at one of these hotels gives guests the exclusive privilege of being able to soak in these springs whenever they please. Many of the springs are adjacent to cold pools - a feature that allows guests to cool down or heat up at their leisure - and some even have swim-up bars and water slides.

There's no better way to begin or end a day in Arenal than by soaking in one of these relaxing springs. Hotels with hot springs include Los Lagos, The Springs Resort and Spa, Arenal Paraiso, Kioro, Royal Corin, Baldi Resort, and Silencio del Campo. Some hotels allow non-guests to use their hot springs for a fee; others will not.
