Get To Know Tabacón Thermal Resort & Spa

Located in the northern region of Costa Rica, Tabacón Thermal Resort & Spa is natural paradise waiting to be explored. Here’s what you need to know about this gem of a resort.

It’s set at the base of an actual volcano.

You read that right. You’ll find Tabacón Thermal Resort & Spa at the base of the majestic Arenal Volcano. Arenal is quite a sight, to say the least, rising more than 5,000 feet above a lush tropical reserve.

Tabacón Thermal Resort & Spa is home to Costa Rica’s largest network of naturally flowing hot springs.

Arenal Volcano’s underground magma heats the hot springs at Tabacón. The river-pool temperatures range from 72 to 105 degrees Fahrenheit. Thousands of gallons of this highly mineralized water naturally emanate every minute. The thermal water flows throughout the resort, forming the Tabacón River. During your getaway, you’ll discover dozens of cascading waterfalls and warm pools along the riverbed, of varying temperatures, water flows and degree of privacy.

The resort & spa is a total wellness destination.

The restorative mineral hot springs here are just the beginning of a wellness journey in Costa Rica. At Tabacón’s anything-but-typical spa, you can pamper yourself with a spa treatment that incorporates local elements such as lemongrass, Naranjo coffee or volcanic mud. And don’t miss the Idyllic Treatment, a couple’s spa package for a little added romance. Treat your muscles, lungs and soul to a yoga session in the resort’s open-air studio. Jumpstart your day in the state-of-the-art fitness center. A stay at Tabacón will leave you feeling rejuvenated.

Adults-only luxury abounds.
