Tabacón Thermal Resort & Spa / Costa Rica
Travel deep into the heart of the Costa Rican jungle to Tabacon Grand Spa Thermal Resort, where 900 lush acres of protected rainforest are your playground. The resort’s located inside a national park at the base of the Arenal Volcano, and here, ‘going natural’ is an understatement. Five thermal hot springs flow by gravity throughout the property, forming in-river pools and cascading waterfalls that are naturally heated by volcano’s magma. Slip away to the zen-like Shangri-La garden or one of the Grand Spa’s open-air bungalows, where faint sounds of local wildlife and gently rushing streams create a relaxing soundtrack for mind-body meditation and ultimate relaxation. The resort’s 100% carbon-neutral, with a ‘Green Program’ that makes the most of the area’s natural resources (all of the water at the resort is naturally heated by the volcano!). Named among the top 10 spas in Latin America by Spa Magazine and Travel + Leisure, this idyllic spot for honeymooners, couples and travelers looking to get in touch with nature, is unlike any other in the region.
