  • It should be drawn early because the pools are very hot. But in the afternoon and evening was a wonderful experience! The ranches are sufficient. The cold pool is actually medium hot. They should have a really cold and deep.

  • I have visited it twice and I recommend it as a beautiful place, variety of pools for all tastes, conditioners ranches to cook some carnitas or enlist a good picnic, Toboggans, hiking trails and areas perfect for rest and relaxation with the delicious hot springs of Arenal

  • Don't expect the luxury of the pools of the big hotels. This place is frequented by the Costa Rican and this is what is nice. This is a family and very relaxed place. It is not luxurious. The atmosphere is casual. It is possible to have a picnic... There are bbq and power outlets. We went there on a Saturday in June (less busy season) and it wasn't too crowded. The 50 degree is even too hot to enter! $ 10 CAD per person there drinks and food for sale on site at decent price.

  • Great family place at a super great price!!
  • It's a very family focused place. Isn't as nice as some of the other hot springs in the area but it is much cheaper
  • Across from Baldi, it's the cheaper hot springs that the locals go to. Lots of different pools with being temperatures set in lush tropical landscaping. You can see Arenal from some of the pools. 4000 colones ($8) entrance fee. Taxi is 3000 colones ($6) each way from town.
  • Cheapest and best hot springs in Alajuela, cheap entry, parking included, great pools and a cheap bar- what more could you want?
  • A relax place to go around 5 or 6 hot springs pools
