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.
