Tabaco Thermal Resort & Spa
Set amongst lush rainforests, with fantastic views over the Arenal Volcano, Tabacón Thermal Resort & Spa is a rainforest escape unlike any other, combining the healing powers of thermal waters with a tranquil and immersive retreat experience. At the heart of Tabacon Thermal Resort & Spa are their thermal mineral springs, which are naturally heated by the nearby Arenal volcano’s magma. The high temperatures of the thermal springs cause the water to be rich in minerals such as silica, calcium, and lithium - all of which can be absorbed through the skin and are believed to relieve stress, promote relaxation and relieve ailments such as poor circulation and arthritis.
In addition to the thermal mineral springs, there's also a great Spa, with treatment bungalows tucked away within the trees. Guests can also participate in yoga and meditation classes, explore hiking trails through the rainforest, and indulge in organic cuisine, providing a holistic wellness experience that nurtures the body, mind, and soul.
