If an authentic adventure surrounded by nature is what you are looking for, then Tabacón Grand Spa Thermal Resort is your destination. Begin your journey to the resort with a three-hour adventurous drive (the resort offers private airport transfers) up the winding roads to the largest and only 100% natural network of thermal mineral springs in Costa Rica. This off-the-grid hot springs resort and spa is nestled in the rainforest with the extraordinary backdrop of the Arenal Volcano.

At the resort, you will experience a maze of green vegetation where you will find handcrafted furnishings made by local artists. There is no need to heat the water at the resort because of the hot magma from the volcano. Meander your way through the Shangri-La Gardens and relax in one of the many cocoon-shaped cabanas or just enjoy any of the quiet, secluded spots that extend over acres of therapeutic natural hot springs. Create the perfect mood no matter the weather and lounge in mineral water temperatures ranging from 72 to 105 degrees-Fahrenheit.

Looking for that special romantic moment? Opt for the “Over the Top” candlelit, five-course Champagne gourmet meal or drift off into rapture with a couple’s spa treatment. Relax in an open-air, secluded bungalow along with your own private, natural-heated Jacuzzi and, of course, Champagne.

The resort will coordinate activities for you with Jacamar Naturalist Tours. They offer a variety of adventures including zip lining (which started in Costa Rica), hiking and horseback riding where you might stop to embrace the essence of nature.

A favorite adventure is just outside of La Fortuna, where a unique 15-minute hike through the tropical jungle leads to an awe-inspiring, jaw-dropping 200-foot high waterfall. Enjoy a swim and just relax in the wonder of it all.

If you are a thrill-seeker, someone who craves adventure, likes to travel through the jungle or is just looking for that ultimate romantic moment in time, then pura vida (pure life) and Tabacón are calling to you!
