Tabacón Hot Springs
Click here for the Costa Rica Travel Tip on Tabacón that 99.9% of tourists have no clue about
Tabacón Hot Springs Spa & Resort is certainly top quality as hot springs resorts go, even when put up against the other quality hot springs destinations in La Fortuna. (Go to our Hot Springs Comparison Chart to figure out which hot springs are right for your Costa Rica vacation)
Tabacón Hot Springs Overview
The greatest part of Tabacón is the marriage between the beauty of tropical hot springs and all of the comfortable opulence of a modern luxury resort. Tabacón is tops for hot springs in Costa Rica, and is the only hot springs place that functions as a full-service luxury hot springs resort. Aside from the eden-like hot springs gardens that are worked into the natural flow of the Tabacón River, the resort also has a fancy-shmancy hotel and a spa that features all sorts of massage treatments with all the fixin's. (Well, maybe not all the fixin's :::wink:::)
You should note, however, that you can enhance your Tabacón visit and cut some of these costs by purchasing a package tour through your hotel. These package tours include a guided tour through local tropical forest with a great variety of birds. Then, they take you to your hot springs for a few hours of evening hot springs followed by a delicious dinner buffet. All transportation is included. If you buy straight from the travel agencies in La Fortuna you'll pay more. The agencies give discounts to people who make their reservations through a hotel. Some hotels charge a large commission on top of that discounted rate. The best rate I've seen for the Tabacón tour is $64 from Posada Roca Virgen (email@example.com, (506) 479-9363).

Map of Tabacón and the Arenal Volcano Area
In the map below, you can see Tabacón on the western side of the Arenal Volcano, tucked right at the base, dangerously close to the rumbling giant. La Fortuna is on the eastern side of the volcano, the center of which is just east of the edge of the map.
