Create an itinerary including Tabacon Hot Springs
Soak in the volcanic surroundings at Tabacon Hot Springs, a spa resort in the heart of Costa Rica's rainforest. The five-star complex provides luxurious and relaxing experiences in a natural setting, right at the base of a mighty volcano that destroyed a nearby village in the 1960s. Dormant for the last few decades, the volcano now provides a scenic backdrop for five different hot springs, with temperatures ranging between 25 C (77 F) and 50 C (122 F). Naturally heated by the volcanic soil, a thermal river flows through the resort and forms several small waterfalls and swimming pools. Browse the website for one-day passes, special packages, and onsite accommodations. Put Tabacon Hot Springs on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our La Fortuna de San Carlos trip maker app.

  • My wife and I stayed 3 nights at the Tabacon and enjoyed most everything about it! We stay from May 10-13 2021 and they took mask wearing very seriously, which we understood and respected. That being said, none of the restaurants or bars were open so we felt like we didn't get the high price we paid for the all inclusive experience. Maybe if we are lucky Tabacon can offer us another trip when to make up for the very high price for the package we bought! We were very hungry those three days but the hot springs eased our stress.
  • We were greeted very well. While checking in, the host took the time to explain all of their facilities and amenities and detail. The rooms were very beautiful. The thermal springs are jaw dropping. It really feels like the fountain of youth. We loved our stay so much, and look forward to coming back!
