Baldí Hot Springs
The Baldí Hot Springs are a close second to Tabacón in opulence. This massive hot springs resort is definitely impressive. It sports 16 different hot springs baths of varying temperatures. (One of the pools is 45°C, enough heat to sterilize my unborn grandsons) Baldí, as seen in the picture, is right at the foot of the Arenal Volcano, so nighttime viewing is great—just make sure you go in March or April to get a better shot at seeing the volcano. Baldí also has two swim-up bars and spa services on site.

Admission to Baldí Hot Springs is $25, but you can pre-purchase for $17 at select hotels and travel agencies. You can get entrance plus lunch or dinner for $40, but I recommend doing a package tour that includes not only admission and dinner, but also a guided hike through tropical forest and all transporation included. This tour is the same that is offered with Tabacón, but runs a bit cheaper at about $45-$50 per person. I recommend booking this tour a day ahead of time with your hotel. Travel agencies give discounts to their customers who book with hotels, and even though a few hotels take all of that discount in commission, most commissions are still low enough to make the price to the customer still much lower than the agency's official tour rate.
How to get to Baldí
Baldí is about 4 km from La Fortuna on the road that heads towards the Arenal Volcano. A taxi should cost about $5 at 2007 prices.
