A therapeutic sanctuary heated by Arenal Volcano, Eco Termales Hot Springs offers secluded relaxation in a lush tropical setting. Family-operated and smaller than other hot springs in the area, the premises focus on a more intimate experience, with only 100 visitors allowed to enter at a time. Take a dip in four shimmering pools of varying temperature, with a cool pool and man made waterfall providing welcome refreshment. Finish off your visit with a delicious meal of authentic Criollo cuisine, made onsite in a rustic restaurant overlooking the springs. With our custom trip planner, La Fortuna de San Carlos attractions like Eco Termales Hot Springs can be center stage of your vacation plans, and you can find out about other attractions like it, unlike it, near it, and miles away.

  • Lovely and quiet, different pools of hot springs with different temperatures. There's one with cold water as well, great for contrast baths. The hottest pool has a nice waterfall that gives a nice natural massage. The food is good and the price is right. You have lockers for your stuff and nice big bathrooms with individuals/private showers.
  • When my wife and I went here we had the place pretty much to ourselves for 4 hours. That was awesome and it seems like that might be more common here than at any of the surrounding hot springs. If you're looking for tranquility choose Eco Termales over the neighboring hot springs. The staff is great here and definitely want to make you feel like you're the top priority. For example the groundskeeper kept showing us the wild life in the trees that weren't easy to see.
  • Great set of springs and a good bar--a good option if you don't want to spring for a resort with springs on site. It can get crowded in the early evening, but it clears out as it gets darker. Great for couples.
  • Best termal waters in Costa Rica. Dont fall for the big places advertisement go for the small natural experience. No crowds.
  • Wonderful hot pools with waterfalls, picturesque bridges, and a bar right near the pools. There was also a pretty good buffet dinner (which costs extra).
