Eco Termales Hot Springs

Eco Termales Hot Springs
The Eco Termales Hot Springs is a sanctuary of pleasure, nature, and beauty that has been the life's work of the Hidalgo family. The smallest of the Arenal hot springs, Eco Termales is geared toward privacy and relaxation — it does not accept more than 100 visitors at one time.

In favour of supporting entrepreneurs? Eco Termales is a family-run project in Arenal, Costa Rica that has been built over several years of focused and hard work. Four geothermal pools vary in temperature, with the coolest being 91º F (32 C) and the hottest being 105º F (41 C). One of the pools has a refreshing, cascading waterfall that you can stand beneath — enjoy the exhilaration without the usual chill. Paths laid with volcanic silt run throughout the complex, connecting the pools, changing rooms, and restaurant — making it easy and safe for you to navigate the pools and property as a whole.

Doña Mireya, Eco Termales’ onsite cook, prepares wonderful food in a traditional Costa Rican kitchen. The restaurant — which is now 18 years old — used to be the Hidalgo family’s own house. Today, the restaurant still maintains its colonial architecture and familial environment; the Hidalgo family prepares meals on the first floor and sleeps on the second floor.

Eco Termales is a wonderfully authentic environment that offers both privacy and tranquility within the Costa Rican rainforest. Come and enjoy this relaxing sanctuary for yourself.

 After your nice, long soak, let us drive you back to your hotel. Choose from our convenient transportation options, and keep stress at bay.
