Tabacon Escape

This was taken from the Tabacon Resort where their thermo-mineral rivers, running at a soothing temperature range from 27º C to 42º C, flowing through exotic tropical gardens, forming natural waterfalls and river pools..


Geologically, Tabacón Resort’s hot springs are 97% rain-based and 3% magma-based. Rainwater enters the earth through fissures on the surface and is then heated by magma found in the earth’s core (Arenal Volcano). Once heated, the waters rise to surface, taking with them minerals found in the earth’s rocky stratus. Thus, the resort’s waters are loaded with minerals.


A beautiful, restful yet energetic, stress reducing experience. If you ever make it to Costa Rica, this is an must have destination on your itinerary.
