Tabacon Hot Springs
Posted By: daacon, 02-09-2012, 08:20 AM

One of the top 10 sites to see while in Costa Rica is the Arenal Volcano and the Tabacon Hot Springs. I have been to a few hot springs in Canada no comparison. Hard to express the beauty of this place. It is more or less all natural hot springs created by the nearby volcano. Water was just right. We only spent one night , two days here could spend a week for sure.

#1 Steaming, refreshing volcanic heated water

#2 Cascading water falls - you can go up there , but as I mentioned most of this is natural so lots of sharp rocks to navigate through and a rocky bottom

#3 - Of course it is a resort so the essential man made structures of swim up bar and pool are mandatory - we did partake of course

#4 One of our group Alois (pronounced Lewis) from Germany - meet him at the place we stayed , he was a great guy traveling by himslef and he came with us on a few trips. (burst mode here)

#5 - nice little serenity pool

#6 - lots of stairways leading to secluded spots to meditate or perhaps another isolated pool of water to relax in

#7 - And most of our motley traveling crew (save the photographer - but hey who wants to see me ?) - relatives , new found friends included - was a great couple of days.
