Rio Chollin, La Fortuna de San Carlos

#6 of 11 in Nature in La Fortuna de San Carlos
Hot Spring · Nature / Park
Maneuver around jagged rocks to find a spot at Rio Chollin. Because the hot springs are often crowded with tourists and locals (even in the late evening), be ready to hike a little upstream if you prefer a more peaceful, secluded spot. For those that want to swim at night, bring a flashlight, because there are no light sources here. If you plan to stay awhile, bring along drinks and snacks. Wear comfortable shoes, as the jagged rocks can be painful to walk on. Our La Fortuna de San Carlos visit planning website makes visiting Rio Chollin and other La Fortuna de San Carlos attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • Skip the cost and go in the river for free right by the resort. Park on the road and there are Many pools to relax in the river.  more »
  • Right outside Tabacon, so these free hot springs are naturally heated! Great spot to just hang out and relax in the afternoon. Make sure you leave before sunset as you’ll need to walk back up to the side of the road. The self-designated parking attendants were helpful as the street kinda slants when parking. Bring small bills (2000 colones).
  • It's just a super beautiful, tropical nice place to visit, gorgeous! Great spot for hummingbird watching too. Wish it had a sign not to feed wildlife, people please visit, but pretty pretty please don't feed any animals your greasy human chips😭😭
