About Tabacón Thermal Resort & Spa
Costa Rica’s finest thermal spa, Tabacón Thermal Resort & Spa is set on 365 hectares of luscious tropical reserve at the foot of Arenal Volcano. It’s a rainforest escape like no other.
Tabacón features free flowing thermal springs naturally heated by the Arenal Volcano. The thermal water flows throughout the resort, forming the Tabacón River. You’ll find dozens of cascading waterfalls, warm pools and hidden bathing spots along the river. Enjoy soaking in hot pools full of medicinal minerals.
A series of natural pools dot the beautiful, landscaped gardens, which feature over 200 species of plants and flowers. Lounge around the main swimming area featuring five pools, a swim-up bar and even a thermal waterslide. Surrounded by nature, unwind with the signature Tabacón massage, utilising volcanic mud to detoxify the body.
There are 103 comfortable rooms and suites, each designed to assimilate local culture with works by local artists and artisan furniture makers throughout.
