Tabacón Thermal Resort & Spa

Why We Love This Hotel

  • Award-winning eco-friendly resort with 18 popular hot springs
  • 20-minute ride to the town of La Fortuna, where there's zip-lining, hiking and rappelling
  • Each room has a breathtaking rainforest view, and some rooms have a view of the volcano
  • Sleek, spacious rooms are 100% smoke free 


With 18 natural hot springs, threaded through myriad hidden pools and waterfalls, Tabacon invites guests to rejuvenate and de-stress. Perfectly manicured jungle paths can take you to each spring and hidden pool, or to spa treatments in a bungalow that opens up toward the rainforest. The hotel offers complimentary shuttle service to and from the hot springs area.

Due to its popularity, the resort can get extremely crowded with day trippers paying to use the hot springs for the day; however, day passes expire at 6pm making late afternoon the optimal time for quiet.

The rooms are huge with views of the rainforest. Walk-in showers with rainfall showerheads are abundant. Some rooms face the volcano, which heats the water used for showering, making Tabacon one of the most environmentally conscious hotels in the country.

Wi-Fi is free at Tabacon, so you can share your trip on social media. Meals are not included and can be expensive, ranging from $30-$60 per person per meal. The nearest town of La Fortuna is a 20-minute car ride away and offers more local flair and excursions.
